Wine EnthusiastMade entirely from Nero d'Avola, this opens with black-skinned berry, sun-baked earth and Mediterranean brush aromas. It's polished and savory on the palate and offers juicy black cherry, raspberry jam and white pepper notes alongside smooth tannins. It's made to be enjoyed young, so drink soon.

Wine AdvocateCantine Colosi presents a juicy and vinous 2016 Nero d'Avola that is a little raw and rustic in places. This Sicilian grape tends to offer aromas of scorched earth, black olive, pickled caper and toasted pistachio nut. You get all of those characteristics here in an informal and easy package. This is a suitable pasta or pizza wine. Ripe cherry and blackberry appear on the finish.
