Aged only in stainless steel to preserve the freshness of the fruit, this wine is redolent of wild berries, violets, cola, crushed stone and licorice. The mouthfeel is sharp, clean and bright.

The 2009 Nero drsquo;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 drsquo;Avola is aged exclusively in steel, which helps preserve quite a bit of freshness. Anticipated maturity: 2010ndash;2013.

Dark violet-red. Pretty violet, plum and dark cherry aromas. Quite sweet on entry, then soft and a bit shapeless in the middle, with flavors similar to the aromas. Finishes clean but a bit short.

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.

The 2007 Nero d'Avola is made from the property's best fruit and is aged exclusively in stainless steel, which is somewhat of a departure from the norm. No matter, the approach clearly works. This is a gorgeous, full-bodied Nero d'Avola bursting with sweet dark cherries, menthol, sage and flowers. It offers notable clarity and elegance, something I can't say too often about the wines of Sicily. Simply put, this is an incredible value. Anticipated maturity: 2008-2011.
