Winemaker Notes

Dark ruby red, with intense fruit aromas especially cherries. Dry, full-bodied, warm wine and youthful. Perfect with red meats cooked any style, pasta with tomato sauce and aged cheese.

RP 88
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2012 Nero d'Avola shows Colosi's comfort zone in terms of price and quality. The wine opens to plush and soft tones of chocolate covered cherry with plenty of fresh fruit and blackberry at the back. The wine shows a solid delivery with soft tannins and pleasant heft and weight to the finish. You can taste those distinctive Nero d'Avola characteristics of toasted almond nut or scorched earth. Drink 2014-2017.

Colosi Winery Image
Colosi's firm has been working in the wine field for three generations. The cellar, located in Messina, is run by the oenologist Piero Colosi who, with the precious contribution of his father Pietro, follows the various stages of wine-making, from vinification to refinement and from bottling to marketing both in Italy and abroad.

Since 1987 they have been producing the ancient wine Malvasia delle Lipari, wines from Salina and other Sicilian wines. Grapes are selected at vintage time.

A large, geographically and climatically diverse island, just off the toe of Italy, Sicily has long been recognized for its fortified Marsala wines. But it is also a wonderful source of diverse, high quality red and white wines. Steadily increasing in popularity over the past few decades, Italy’s fourth largest wine-producing region is finally receiving the accolades it deserves and shining in today's global market.

Though most think of the climate here as simply hot and dry, variations on the sun-drenched island range from cool Mediterranean along the coastlines to more extreme in its inland zones. Of particular note are the various microclimates of Europe's largest volcano, Mount Etna, where vineyards grow on drastically steep hillsides and varying aspects to the Ionian Sea. The more noteworthy red and white wines that come from the volcanic soils of Mount Etna include Nerello Mascalese and Nerello Cappuccio (reds) and Carricante (whites). All share a racy streak of minerality and, at their best, bear resemblance to their respective red and white Burgundies.

Nero d’Avola is the most widely planted red variety, and is great either as single varietal bottling or in blends with other indigenous varieites or even with international ones. For example, Nero d'Avola is blended with the lighter and floral, Frappato grape, to create the elegant, Cerasuolo di Vittoria, one of the more traditional and respected wines of the island.

Grillo and Inzolia, the grapes of Marsala, are also used to produce aromatic, crisp dry whites. Pantelleria, a subtropical island belonging to the province of Sicily, specializes in Moscato di Pantelleria, made from the variety locally known as Zibibbo.
