94+ Sicilian Wines- CLOSEOUT DEALS

Three friends founded Azienda Agricola COS, in 1980: Giambattista Cilia, Cirino Strano and Giusto Occhipinti. The acronym of their last names is where the name for the winery – COS – comes from.
These guys are just now hitting their stride. The wines are amazing and the word is getting out. With each vintage, COS over delivers and gives you a true sense of Sicilian winemaking. They are becoming the benchmark for all other wines from this up and coming region; the city of Vittoria, in the province of Ragusa.

We are closing out these vintages of these great wines to make room for the new ones. When you buy by the six pack, you are getting the best deal online. Act fast, these are good on the remaining stock only.

2015 COS * Pithos Bianco
94pts JS
$29.99btl or $150.00 per solid six pack ($25btl)

Pithos Bianco, known as the orange wine of Sicily, is a pure expression of Grecanico macerated on its skins for seven months in clay amphorae that are buried underground. It pours into the glass revealing a light orange color that is laced with brilliant highlights of shiny gold and amber. Soft, floral notes meld into white, yellow stone fruits, peaches and savory herbs in this soft beautifully delineated wine. Textural finesse and elegance are the hallmarks. Saline notes frame the exceptionally polished finish. Simply exquisite.

2014 COS * Cerasuolo di Vittoria Classico DOCG
94+pts RP
$29.99btl or $150.00 per solid six pack ($25btl)

This is a tremendous wine and is my favorite bottle in this excellent series. The 2014 Cerasuolo di Vittoria Classico reveals beautiful integrity and elegance with wild raspberry, blue flower and raw pistachio nut that is a bit sweet and salty at the same time. Buoyant and bright berry fruit takes center stage and although there are some post-fermentation aromas that might stick out to some experts, I embrace them as an integral part of this unique wine’s distinctive personality. The bouquet is almost electric. It has many elements that recall a young Nebbiolo with powdered licorice, cola and dried ginger. I tasted this wine from vat and tasted it again as a finished product. The label has been restyled to boast one of the most distinctive and contemporary designs I have even seen in Italian wine.
