A Great Everyday Italian Red- Colosi Sicilia Rosso 2008

I always try to have a few bottles of easy drinking, everyday Italian wines around in case we grill a pizza or make pasta.  Colosi Sicilia Rosso is a great go-to Italian red.  Balanced, simple, and priced perfectly for casual wine drinking.

About the Wine- From the Winery

Colosi Sicilia Rosso 2008 is 100% Nero d’Avola from the Sicilia region of Italy.  It has 13% alcohol and retails for around $10.

Now the Fun Part- Tasting the Wine

Colosi Sicilia Rosso pours a dark ruby in the glass.  The nose is straight forward with aromas of cherry, plum, and herbs.  The palate is smooth and hearty with tastes of dark cherry and earthy herbs followed by a dry, spicy finish.  A food-friendly, Italian red that is easy on the wallet!

My Wine Rating- B/B+

Food Pairing Suggestions- This wine is a perfect match for a tomato and basil pizza, grilled lamb, or a meat lasagna
