95pt Sicilian Red Under $30btl- LIMITED

COS

Three partners, Giambattista Cilia, Giusto Occhipinti and Cirino Strano, started a friendship first and a winery second. The third thing they would do is forever change the Sicilian winescape. I always think of COS in denominations of three. Take the first letter from each of the founders’ last names and its spells COS.

The COS vision was that of producing a pure, simple, non-interventionist’s wine. The partners presented that vision at a time when winemaking technology and practices were more hands-on than they had ever been in the past. Nothing could be more true today and the 2014 vintage shows what REAL Sicilian winemaking is all about.

Todays offer is very special. The only DOCG wine on the island of Sicily is the Cerasuolo di Vittoria and COS hit a homerun in 2014. We have the LOWEST price when you buy this gem by the six pack. Hurry, it very limited. Respond NOW!

This is a tremendous wine and is my favorite bottle in this excellent series. The 2014 Cerasuolo di Vittoria Classico, a blend of 60% Nero d’Avola and 40% Frappato, 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.
