Producer

Azienda Agricola COS was founded in 1980 by three friends: Giambattista Cilia, Giusto Occhipinti, and Cirino Strano. The name is just an acronym of their family names (in case you didn’t notice). The trio is known for the transformation of Cerasuolo di Vittoria wine from DOC to DOCG level (the only one on the island), as their 2005 release was the first to bear the new designation.

COS started its adventure with biodynamic farming and neutral terracotta vases. In 2007 (after moving to a new location), they decided to get rid of all their oak barrels in favour of 150 huge amphoras.

There are no secrets here. I just love a good juicy Frappato on almost any day. Cherry, red flowers and gravel. Good balance, long aftertaste with a pleasant bitterness that only adds to complexity. Tannin is low. The juicy mouthfeel finishes with flavours of red flowers and cranberry. Neat.
