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.

Frankly speaking, I expected more. I guess, it’s too young, hence restrained. But it was good nevertheless. Clay, band-aid, tea and orange peel. Would be lovely to re-taste this vintage in a year or two.

For some reason, I can’t figure out this vintage. There is always something ruining the experience for me. It’s too flat and not fascinating. Pencil shavings, baked fruits and nuts. Not complex yet demanding. A tall person in short pants.
