This red wine derives from Nerello Mascalese and Narello Cappuccio grapes, which are cultivated on the small island of Salina. It has a long-lasting aroma with a clear, winey note. On the palate it is well-balanced with a rigorous body. This is due to maceration with the grapeskins and the regular pruning of the vines. The wine in matured in large barrels for a period that varies between six months and a year.

The producer

Colosi is a company that has been operating in the wine field for four generations. The cellar is managed by the oenologist Pietro Colosi who follows the various steps, from winemaking to refinement and from bottling to marketing the wines. For many years the company has been involved in the production of the ancient Malvasia delle Lipari wine. The company covers an area of ​​ten hectares in Salina (a small island that is part of the Aeolian archipelago) between Capo Faro and Porri. This area is recognized as one of the best on the island both for its exposure and for the chemical-physical nature of the soil which, being of volcanic origin, is particularly suitable for the cultivation of vines. The planting of the vineyard, made particularly difficult due to the morphology of the soil, was carried out in terraces restoring the old dry stone walls. The company produces other typical wines in the areas of Marsala and Salemi in western Sicily.

Best with

This wine is excellent when drunk with traditional meat dishes from the Eolie archipelago.

How to serve it

The bouquet of Salina Rosso can be enjoyed as soon as the bottle is opened, which should be at least an hour before serving. The wine should then be served at 18 degrees centigrade in clear, transparent crystal goblets.

How to keep

If kept well, this wine has an average conservation period of three to five years. The bottles should be laid horizontally in a cool, dark, humid wine-cellar.
