Cerasuolo di Vittoria Classico

Cerasuolo di Vittoria DOCG

60% Nero d'Avola, 40% Frappato

An iconic wine from one of the most influential producers in Sicily. The Cerasuolo Classico is characterized by bright, wild red fruits, energetic and complex with great structure. With time the wine relaxes to express smoked herbs, dried flowers, and leathery tobacco. A medium bodied wine with nuanced tannins that develop with age. This wine captures the life and essence of southeastern Sicily with freshness.

POINTS OF INTEREST

COS was started by 3 friends fresh outta high school in 1980. With idealistic views on farming and a natural approach to winemaking, the goal was to express terroir and the true identity of their region. COS has helped shape the way we think about wine over the last 4 decades. Certified organic with biodynamic principles, this benchmark wine, Cerasuolo di Vittoria, received DOCG status in 2005, the first and only DOCG in Sicily.
