For decades Sicilian wines imported to the USA were victims of high yields, over produced, over ripe harvests. Sicilian wineries trying to compete with better known DOCís in the rest of the country offered as much volume as possible with low prices on the shelf. Recently producers like Terre Nerre, COS and Colosi have changed this paradigm. The 2014 Colosi Nero díAvola is a product of oenologist Piero Colosi, and his father Pietro. The two take full advantage of the hot sunny days, mountainous terrain and unique soil conditions to produce a high quality Nero DíAvola at an affordable price! Ripe red fruit, balanced acidity, integrated softer tannins make this wine a fantastic pairing to lighter meats, BBQ, pizza and rustic Mediterranean dishes.

Producer
Since 1987 Cantine Colosi has been producing native Sicilian wines.Consisting of 24 acres of vineyards in Salina, a small island in the Eolian Archipelago, Colosi occupies an area of the island recognized for both its orientation and for the physical-chemical nature of the soil whose volcanic origins are particularly suitable for vine cultivation. The new winemaking cellar, surrounded by the Malvasia vineyards, was completed in 2004. The winery is located underground in order to have a constant temperature for the optimum care of the wine and to respect the strict preservation rules of the Eolian archipelago. With three generations of experience, Colosi is led by enologist Piero Colosi in collaboration with his father Pietro.
