On Salina, island in the volcanic Aeolian archipelago, amidst the fragrances of the Mediterranean scrub and the breath-taking views, the Colosi family cultivates vineyards on characteristic terraces overlooking the sea and produces unique wines that reflect shimmering light, wind, sun and colour.
With its 10 hectares of vineyards between Capo Faro and Porri, Colosi is one of the most representative producers of the island. The area is considered to be one of the best because of its exposure and the chemical-physical characteristics of the volcanic soil. The vines were planted on terraces, restoring the old dry walls, and they include grape varieties typical of Mediterranean island wine-making: Corinto Nero, Nerello Cappuccio, Nerello Mascalese, Inzolia, Catarratto and Malvasia. Malvasia is without doubt the most important vine variety of the island and of the Colosi company.
Colosi’s wine-making cellar is literally immersed among the vines, and is partially buried in order to comply with the strict regulations on the protection of the territory and landscape of the Aeolian archipelago. This location allows the temperature to be kept constant, ideal for the optimal preservation of the wines.
