The 2019 Nero d'Avola from Colosi wafts up with a dark, alluring bouquet of crushed rocks, peppery herbs and black currants. Its silky textures are complemented by mineral-tinged, sweet wild berries with zesty acids. Shades of lavender define the finale. $15.00 (Eric Guido, Vinous, May 2021) — 9 hours ago
I wasn’t expecting to like this as much as I do, for some reason. Anyway, this is excellent. Very fragrant (with air), showing intense sweet hay, meadow flowers, ginger ale notes, crisp pear, and crushed stone. Intense in the mouth too, but with a weightlessness that is very appealing. Long, minerally, bone dry finish with an almost Muscadet-like quinine thing at the end. — 18 days ago
The label says this is￼ 100% Greco Blanco, not a blend. It has an intense honey-sweet fruit aroma. Then it is so tropical and fruity you are transported to a Caribbean island. This is pool wine and deck wine and I think it would also go with spicy food or fish. I love it but it’s almost too sweet! — 23 minutes ago
My first Grillo.
Underripe peach, green apple, key lime, honeysuckle, touch of green vegetable, and hint of white flower. Medium to full body is nicely textured with bracing acidity. Long saline mineral finish. To me this is like a hybrid of Chablis and Gruner. Lovey! — 4 days ago
Barely breaking the top 20 of grape varieties found in Sicily (also the only place Perricone is found to my knowledge), single variety Perricone isn’t exactly available in abundance, which is a shame because it’s a juicy delight. Tart black cherry is the dominant note. Also black currant, licorice, blueberries, violet with a touch of dried herbs / medicinal / savory quality on the back palate. Medium bodied. Well integrated tannins. Ebullient. Organically farmed. Terrier approved. — 17 days ago
Sultry vibe. Fruit like a kiss with red lipstick. Tawny port, raisins, dank florals and masses of dark energy like a flash of lightning at night. But this is not too extracted and very light in the mouth with bright acid. Way more elegant and silky than any Nero I’ve tried. Underneath the fruity/floral is a musky, sexy, earthy quality, a red clay earthiness, like the scent from the forest floor of some very specific, very remote place. Revelatory. — 19 days ago
