Sicilia At a Glance

Region Name Sicilia

Sicily is Italy’s southernmost region, and the largest island in the Mediterranean Sea. For more than 2500 years Sicily (Sicilia in Italian) has been a significant center of Mediterranean viniculture, although the reputation and style of its wines has changed significantly over that time.

  • Score: 87 Vintage 2018 Wine AdvocateMade in a simple and easy-drinking style, the unoaked 2018 Sicilia Nero d’Avola offers youthful brightness and variety-driven notes of wild cherry, cassis, licorice, potting soil and chopped black olives. There is a momentary layer of grilled fennel seed, and that completes what is no doubt an authentically Sicilian presentation. This Sicilian red would match nicely with an amatriciana. Production is 80,000 bottle strong. Shelf Talker
  • Score: 88 Vintage 2017 Wine Spectator“A pure note of sweet and juicy wild strawberry is layered with bright, citrusy acidity and light tannins in this balanced and expressive, medium-bodied red, accented by hints of white peach, dried thyme, smoke and star anise. Drink now through 2020.” - Alison Napjus, August 2018 Shelf Talker Full Review
  • Score: 86 Vintage 2016 Wine Advocate“Cantine 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.” Shelf Talker Full Review
