Colosi 'Salina Rosso' IGP (Italy)
This wine is a blend of grapes grown in Salina, one of the Aeolian islands in the north of Sicily. The original name of the islands was the Greek "Didyme" meaning "Twins", which referred to the two volcanoes, Montefossa Dellefelci and Monte Dei Porri present on the island (now inactive). The island's modern name, "Salina", refers to a small salty lake situated south of the town of Santa Maria.
Ruby red color with purple highlights. The bouquet on the nose is intense and rich, with luscious fruity notes of Morello cherry and blackberry, and elegant hints of flowers from the Mediterranean scrub. The sip is well structured and balanced, with a fruity aftertaste. The wine can age well for some years.
50% Nerello Cappuccio, 50% Nerello Mascalese from the Sicily region of Italy
