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.

Press & Shelf Talkers

  • Score: 88 Vintage 2018 Wine AdvocatePreviously an IGT Terre Siciliane wine, this white made with the Grillo grape is now part of the Sicilia DOC. The Cantine Colosi 2018 Sicilia Grillo has its own feisty character. It opens to a medium golden color and offers aromas of stone fruit, poached pear and baked apple. There are points of saffron and sweet baking spice as well. Aged in acacia tonneaux for a brief four months, this wine is designed to reveal a good amount of that elusive Grillo complexity. Examine those esoteric details alongside a simple pasta fagiolini. Some 14,000 bottles were made. Shelf Talker
  • Score: 88 Vintage 2018 Wine EnthusiastAromas of jasmine, citrus and white stone fruit almost leap out of the glass. On the vibrant palate, crisp acidity accompanies Meyer lemon, yellow pear and a tangy hint of saline. Shelf Talker
  • Score: 88 Vintage 2016 Wine Advocate“Here’s a simple and fresh white wine from Sicily. The Cantine Colosi 2016 Grillo shows fragrant and floral aromas of jasmine and honeysuckle. This wine is also extremely marine-like in character with salty mineral and crushed oyster shell. Those mineral notes appear hand-in-hand with those more opulent peach and apricot flavors. This is a lean and crisp white wine with a no-fuss attitude.” Shelf Talker Full Review
