2010 Colosi Rosso
Nero d’Avola is ’the most important red wine grape in Sicily, and is one of Italy’s most important indigenous varieties. 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.
Wine & SpiritsThe 2009 Nero d'Avola emerges from the glass with layers of vibrant, perfumed red fruit. This silky, graceful red offers tons of varietal character and wonderful balance in an up-front, juicy style I find particularly appealing. The Nero d'Avola is aged exclusively in steel, which helps preserve quite a bit of freshness. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2013.
SWA 88+ - Antonio Galloni Wine Advocate 88+ Points The 2010 Nero d'Avola is a highly attractive unoaked red. It flows with expressive layers of perfumed varietal fruit, flowers and mint. The 2010 is a touch firm at this stage, most likely owing to its recent bottling. Anticipated maturity: 2011-2014.
