Cerasuolo Vittoria Classico Cos 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

This biodynamic Frappato, a variety native to Sicily, is absolute dynamite with deep brandied cherry aromas on the nose and a juicy, herbaceous rush of crushed red cherry fruit, rhubarb compote, and fennel seed in the mouth. Light bodied, but packed with flavor, this wine maintains amazing freshness from being fermented in amphorae and aged in stainless steel tanks instead of oak barrels.

They were schoolfriends, Giambattista Cilia called Titta, Giusto Occhipinti and Pinuccia Strano, three guys of Vittoria (RG). Afterwards Titta and Giusto became architects, while Giuseppina Strano chose to be a social worker. In 1980, the passion for the vineyards, carried them to found a farm called COS (the initials of their surnames). They rented the parents's lands and began to play. Harvesting, pressing grapes (by foot), making wine, they produced 20 hectoliters of wine, which although was an amateur product, it was of great quality. Charmed for the enterprise, they have invested a lot in the wine cellar, equipping it of modern technologies: today their wines ferment with controlled temperature and age in barrique. Among the three protagonists who gave life to the adventure, today, two architects, Giusto and Giambattista, carry the plan ahead and after 23 years they have placed an other important dowel: the resctructure of a majestic residence, become the country house center of COS.

Very rose petal-scented with hints of black cherry and juniper adding complexity. Almost silky in the mouth with very floral and herbal inner mouth perfumes. This is elegant and refined with great length to the fresh black cherry fruit that is supported by a bed of fine tannins. 91pts

I am not a generally a red wine drinker...maybe an occasional Merlot. I had it a Wine Bar and found it to be simply wonderful. Like a Merlot but a little more fruity and flavorful.
