Winery Notes:
WINE DESCRIPTION:
Cantine Colosi has been part of the wine industry for three generations. The winery’s bottling is done in Giammoro (Messina), Sicily. With the help of his father, Piero Colosi oversees all aspects of the wines, from vini cation to bottling and plays an active role in the marketing of the Colosi name at home and abroad.

TASTING NOTES:
Intense, dark ruby red color. The bouquet on the nose is full of red and black fruit, like blackberry and strawberries, together with ow- ers, herbs. and a slight smoky sensation. On the palate it is fresh, dry and full-bodied, with soft tannins and a long savory finish.

FOOD PAIRING:
Ideal with red meats, aged cheeses and meaty shes, like grill tuna steaks.
