Colosso blends Italian favourites with one of the country’s hidden gems. 

Sangiovese, indigenous to Tuscany but planted throughout the country, is prized for its balanced acid and high tannin; it is one of Italy’s most important varietals and the backbone of famous wines like Brunello and Chianti.

Primitivo is a key grape in southern Italy, known for producing bold, tannic wines with dark berry flavours.

Nerello is a rare Sicilian grape mostly found in the volcanic soils of Mount Etna. Similar to a finePinot Noir, it adds depth to this already impressive blend.

COLOSSO = BIG

‘Colosso’, Italian for colossus, speaks to the powerful profile of this big Italian red. Heady aromas of cherry, jammy plum and vanilla lead into a bold fruity palate. Rich flavours of cherry, blackberry and plum are accented with sweet baking spice, and layered with softer notes of raspberry, licorice, and dried herb. Big, velvety tannin is balanced with moderate acidity, giving great structure and a plush finish.

FOOD PAIRING

The ripe fruit and full body make this a good partner for rich dishes like ribs, roasted leg of lamb, bacon-wrapped tenderloin, or grilled sausage with fire roasted peppers and caramelized onions. Pairs with hearty veggie dishes like roasted root vegetables or eggplant parmesan. A plate of mature cheeses is always welcome.
