Cos Cerasuolo di Vittoria Classico 2008
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.
Editorial Reviews for Cos Cerasuolo di Vittoria Classico
Very perfumed with clay soil tones, a touch of animal, some iron notes and fine, lightly astringent red fruits. Soft and broad in the mouth with slightly austere tannins and acids that are more mouthwatering than spiky. The finish is fabulous with perfumed fruit that has a peachy sweetness to it. Wonderfully exciting wine. 92pts
