  • Score: 88 Vintage 2019 Vinous Media The 2019 Nero d'Avola is very pretty and perfumed in the glass, offering first roses, then cherries and white smoke. It’s soft and round in texture, balancing ripe blue fruits with juicy acids and cooling herbal notes. There’s not a hard edge in sight here as this tapers off fresh with lingering sweet wild berries.

  • Score: 86 Vintage 2019 Wine Advocate Here's another new eco-friendly wine from Cantine Colosi. The 2019 Sicilia Nero d’Avola Ecolosi (in a screw-capped bottle) is punchy and bright, with a lean, fresh and very easy approach. The wine is redolent of red cherry and cassis, and it also shows some blue flower, candied orange peel and a hint of caper or green olive. It is short and quick drinking, making it a good pairing partner to bite-sized pizza appetizers. Shelf Talker Full Page Review
  • Score: 88 Vintage 2018 Wine Enthusiast Made with organically farmed Nero d'Avola, this vegan friendly, easygoing red has inviting aromas of black-skinned berry, botanical herb and baking spice. Soft, savory and enjoyable, the palate offers ripe blackberry, fleshy black cherry and cinnamon framed in pliant tannins. Drink soon. Shelf Talker Full Page Review
