Origin Italy, Sicily, Salina
Brand Colosi
Alcohol/vol 13%

This estate is owned by the Colosi family in Sicily, and the wine is a blend of Inzolia and Catarratto grapes, 50% each, grown in Salina, one of the Aeolian islands, in the North of Sicily. The original name of the island was the Greek “Didyme” meaning twins, which referred to two volcanoes, Monte Fossa delle Felci and Monte dei Porri present on the island (now inactive). The island’s modern name, “Salina”, refers to a small salty lake situated south of the town of Santa Maria. The grapes and soils here are similar to the more famous Etna region of Sicily. 

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 have changed significantly over that time.

Since 1987 Cantine Colosi has been producing Sicilian wines exclusively from native grape varieties. Consisting of 24 acres of vineyards in Salina, a small island in the Eolian Archipelago, Colosi occupies 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 Eolian archipelago. With three generations of experience, Colosi is led by enologist Pietro Colosi in collaboration with his father Piero.

This luscious saline-inflected white from Sicily has excellent intensity with hints of ripe peach, sicilian lemon, orange blossoms, white flowers and gentle sage. Fresh, juicy and so delicious, we paired this with a beautiful white fish dinner with sauteed vegetables. You can be creative, this white has plenty of complexity. Matching Particularly suitable with fish and seafood dishes.

The deeply aromatic nose alternates the juicy sweetness of very ripe yellow peach with the savory saline aromas of hot pavement and crushed rocks before the palate turns to a lively citrus medley made bright with bouncy acid, but still savory with a salted butter finish.

The 2021 Bianco Salina is muted with a delicate bouquet that blends mint leaves with hints of green melon. It splashes across the palate, pleasantly sweet and with juicy acidity, showing crisp orchard fruits and hints of gingery spice. The 2021 tapers off with sneaky concentration, and a sour melon trace slowly fades.
