This white wine, recognised in 1997 as a wine of "Indicazione Geografica Tipica", derives from Catarratto Inzolia grapes which are cultivated on the small island of Salina. It is a lively straw-yellow colour with a greenish reflection, and has an aroma reminiscent of spring flowers and a fresh, flavoursome and fruity taste. It is a characteristic wine, whose aroma recalls the intense fragrances of the island where it comes from.

The producer

Colosi is a company, which operates in the wine sector for over three generations. The cellar is run by the oenologist Piero Colosi, who due to his father Pietro's precious contribution follows all the various passages; from the vinification to the withering and from the bottling to the marketing of the wine. The company comprises a surface of ten hectares in Salina (a small island which is part of the Eolian archipelago). They are situated in Gramignazzi in the outskirts of Malfa. This area is recognized as being one of the best on the island both for its exposure and for the natural chemical aspect of the ground, which is particularly adequate for the cultivation of vineyards due to the fact that it is of volcanic origin. The equipment for the vineyards is made difficult due to the morphology of the territory and therefore small terraces have been made and the old dry walls are utilized. Guyot type pruning is carried out and leaving only a few buds, since the impossibility of irrigation highly effects the plant in the hottest months.

Best with

This wine is a particularly good accompaniment for dishes based on fish or seafood.

How to serve it

The wine should be served at 10 degrees centigrade in clear, transparent crystal goblets.

How to keep

This isn't a wine that should be aged, and should be drunk within two to three years of purchase. The bottles should be laid horizontally in a cool, dark, humid wine-cellar.
