Savor rich berry flavors, bold sweet spice, and nuanced notes of licorice and dried herb, backed by big, velvety tannin. Winexpert Private Reserve Colosso Sangiovese' masterfully blends Italian favorites Sangiovese and Primitivo with a touch of Nerello, one of the country's hidden gems, giving you a larger-than-life Italian red you’re guaranteed to love.


Behind the Name "Colosso"


'Colosso' is Italian for colossus, and speaks to the powerful profile of this big Italian red. Through history and present day, some of the greatest are often known by a single name. And so Colosso, a proper name itself, seemed a fitting name for this singular sensation



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 fine
Pinot Noir, it adds depth to this already impressive blend.


‘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.


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.
