Cantine Colosi

2015 Nero d'Avola

Sicily Italy


Cantine Colosi is a winery located in the village of Giammoro which is situated west of Messina on the northeastern shore of Sicily; however, the winery also covers some 24 acres on Salina, a small island in the Eolian Archipelago where the vines enjoy excellent exposure and volcanic soils.  The winery is located underground in order to have a constant temperature for the optimum care of the wine in an intensely-hot climate.  The result is a full-bodied Nero that opens with plush tones of chocolate-covered cherry and tons of fresh fruit and blackberry on the palate.  This incredibly-priced wine finishes with soft tannins but a pleasant heft and weight and those distinctive Nero characteristics of toasted almond and scorched earth.  Serve this incredibly-priced little beauty with charcuterie, cheese, duck, mushrooms, pizza, red meat, roasted root vegetables, wild game and just about anything. 14% ABV HWG
