Tasting Notes

This dry white wine, produced on the small island of Salina, is characterized by an aroma reminiscent of spring flowers, white nectarine, crushed rocks and salinity. The palate echoes the nose with the addition of citrus and white peach. It is medium in body with refreshing acidity and has a medium finish.

WINE INFORMATION

Since 1987 Cantine Colosi has been producing native Sicilian wines. They own 24 acres of vineyards in Salina, a small island in the Eolian Archipelago, in an area of the island recognized for both its orientation and for the physical-chemical nature of the soil whose volcanic origins are particularly suitable for vine cultivation. The new winemaking cellar, surrounded by the Malvasia vineyards, was completed in 2004. The winery is located underground in order to have a constant temperature for the optimum care of the wine and to respect the strict preservation rules of the island. With three generations of experience, Colosi is led by enologist Pietro Colosi in collaboration with his father Piero.

Grapes were harvested on September 2, 2020; they are crushed soon after in order to maintain the fragrance and aroma. The must was fermented in stainless steel tanks under controlled temperature for about 10-12 days until the total transformation of sugar in alcohol. When the process of alcoholic fermentation was completed, the wine remained in stainless steel tanks for 3 months and the refining continues in the bottles for an additional two months.
