  • Score: 89 Vintage 2021 Wine Enthusiast Vanilla and sweet ripe cherries show on the nose of this wine, along with earthy aromas of soil, rocks and smoky pepperiness. Strawberries, cherries and dark chocolate create a rich, juicy palate outlined by firm, sticky tannins balanced with lots of acid. Shelf Talker Full Page Review
  • Score: 88 Vintage 2020 Vinous Media Dusty rose and black cherry liquor is offset by a peppery flourish of spice as the 2020 Rosso Terre Siciliane unfolds in the glass. It's juicy and fresh with vibrant acidity motivating its tart wild berry fruits. This finishes with admirable length and is pleasantly chewy. Red licorice hints stick around.

  • Score: 88 Vintage 2019 Wine Advocate The Cantine Colosi 2019 Sicilia Nero d'Avola reveals ripe cherry and blackberry with lots of sunny plushness and softness. This certified vegan wine shows charming simplicity with lots of cherry fruit followed by light spice and cured tobacco or bacon fat. The wine offers moderate length and depth, but it is more than adequate to pair with a spicy eggplant pasta. Shelf Talker Full Page Review
  • Score: 87 Vintage 2019 Vinous Media The 2019 Rosso is a fun and juicy blending of 70% Syrah and 30% Nerello Mascalese that boasts ripe raspberry and black cherry fruit complemented by peppery florals.
