Nero d'Avola is the most famous 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 Advocate 88 points - 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.
