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.   This red blend is a comprised of  Nero d'Avola and Nerello Mascalese grapes that are macerated on the skins for 4-5 days, fermented in stainless steel tanks for 10-12 days, subjected to malolactic fermentation in stainless steel tanks for another 4-5 days and then aged for six months in Slavonian oak and another four months in bottle.  The result is a dry and full-bodied wine, dark ruby red in color, with aromas and flavors of black fruit, blackberries, strawberries, flowers and herbs, a great match with red meats and aged cheese.  13.5% ABV HWG
