Colosi Rosso 2008

External Review by Premium Wine & Spirits:

The Sicilia Rosso is the estate's entry-level Nero d'Avola. It sees six months in cask. The 2006 is an awesome, mouth filling red loaded with dark fruit, chocolate and gorgeous aromatic intensity. Ideally the wine might offer a little more weight on the mid-palate, but this is a ridiculously good wine for the money. Anticipated maturity: 2008-2009.

Dark red. Roasted red fruits, black pepper and earth on the nose. Black cherry and tobacco flavors are complicated by an herbal element. A fairly sweet, easy-to-drink red with modest length and complexity.

The 2007 Rosso Colosi (Nero d'Avola) is a deep, expansive wine made in a super-ripe style, with notes of raisin-like sweetness that linger on the finish. The wine could use a touch more freshness, but that is a small criticism considering this wine's very reasonable price tag. Anticipated maturity: 2009-2011.

The 2008 Colosi Rosso (Nero d'Avola) is the more rustic of these two reds from Colosi. Dark wild cherries, flowers, herbs and spices come together quite nicely in this hearty, medium-bodied red. The Rosso is another fabulous wine for the money. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2013.

The 2005 Sicilia Rosso is a delicious, full-bodied wine with a generous core of fruit, and an engaging, compelling personality. I was utterly seduced by its purity, sweetness and length, in fact I had a hard time putting my glass down. This wine is almost too good for the money. Anticipated maturity: 2008-2010.

Medium red. Aromas of plum, apple, smoke and spices, with hints of nut skin and pepper. Sweet on entry, then slightly baked and rather advanced in the middle palate. The sweet flavors offer modest cut, and the finish shows a distinctly firm edge.

Produced primarily from Nero d'Avola, this rustic, mouthfilling, country red exhibits good, plump, cherry, earthy, cherry fruit with herbaceous, peppery notes in the background. Drink this lush, easygoing, tasty red over the next 1-2 years.
