I love these wines that are most definitely not playing to the masses. Medium garnet with a wide brim. The nose is highly attractive fresh out of the gate. A ridiculous amount of fruit here with blackberries, black cherries, and strawberries. Eucalyptus and smoke. Herbs and spice. Beautiful earth and foresty goodness with the suggestion of funk. Terrific aromas.

COS uses clay amphorae for storage and biodynamic viticulture to produce wines as naturally as possible. 60% Nero d’Avola, 40% Frappato di Vittoria. This is all about the terroir, it’s a glorious wine that truly speaks of a place and is driven by that. The acid is nice and vibrant and the tannins round. Plenty more fruit to be found on the palate with red and black fruits. More dusty earth, leather, and stones. A long finish that leaves you wanting more. And my friends, you do want more.

This is consistently good, but the Terre Siciliano bottlings are better. Made a good beef stew to go with it though.

Always love when something is what it should be. Delicious, great balance. Rounding out Sicilian/Indian night with a bang

Delicious Nero D'avola blend. Definitely recommend with pizza and medium heavy fare.

Classy wine from reliable producer. Pronounced hard candy note, with underlying dusty element.

I love frappato when it’s well made. Easy to drink, full flavored, without any syrupee texture and flavour. Perfect with my pizza.

Surprisingly soft, easy drinking. It let the food gets the attention, which, sometime, is what we need. Finished the bottle in a second.
