Winemaker's Notes

Color is intense ruby red. Intense blackberry aromas and a fresh and tannic palate.

Its fresh flavors and well-balanced tannins make it the ideal accompaniment for red meats and game.

Critical Acclaim

"Colosi's 2008 Nero d’Avola is a fresh, vinous offering loaded with perfumed red fruit. Ideally the wine needs a few months to recover from its recent bottling, as the full range of aromas and flavors remains rather muted at this stage. This soft, supple Nero d’Avola offers terrific quality for the money. Anticipated maturity: 2009-2012. "
