Cerasuolo di Vittoria Delle Fontane

Cerasuolo di Vittoria DOCG

60% Nero d"Avola 40% Frappato

A crowning achievement for COS; to take something great, Cerasuolo di Vittoria, and make it even better by choosing the best barrel from the best parcel. What stands out is the depth and concentration of fruit in this wine. Dense dark red fruits like raspberry and pomegranate balance savory notes of wild herbs, anise seed, leather, spice, and black olive. The palate is firm but generous with fine tannins that can age well for decades.

POINTS OF INTEREST

The Contrada vineyard area of Fontane is one of the two key sites for the COS winery. This wine is given the vineyard designation on the bottle not just because it is sourced from this single vineyard, but because it represents the best fruit each year from this specific site. After one year, the best 4,000 liter Slavonian oak barrel is selected to age for an additional year and bottled as this special cuvee.

"Zibibbo in Pithos"

Terre Siciliane IGP

Zibibbo (Muscat di Alexandria)

The Arabic word "Zibibbo "is the official Italian name for Moscato d'Alessandria. One of the world's oldest grape varieties, this wine is intensely aromatic with expressive floral elements like lavender, lemon balm, Meyer lemon, honey comb, and apricot. Very fruity but dry with a soft acidity that is round, full, and coating. This wine will confuse your taste buds with smells that allude to sweetness but with a taste that is dry and savory. A truly pleasurable experience.

POINTS OF INTEREST

The stable of Amphora wines from COS has grown with this edition of the Zibibbo in Pithos. A compelling example of a dry Moscato with skin contact and aging in clay vessels. It stands out as something different. Like all COS wines, this is spontaneous wild yeast fermentation from their certified organic vineyards. It spends more than 30 days on the skins and 6 months in the Amphora Pithos. Only 500 cases produced.
