Cos Frappato 2009

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Intensely aromatic spicy wild fruit on the nose has a touch of orange and guava adding an exotic edge. Rather broad in the mouth, a bit pillowy in that it is mouth filling if a bit hollow, with tannins that have a bitter edge. The tannins dominate the finish and keep the strawberry/cherry fruit compressed on the palate. With air the finish gets a slightly dried fruit, jammy strawberry edge. 86pts

http://www.cosvittoria.it COS, Yesterday, today. They began to produce for pleasure, ended to create a company: one of the most characterized of the Sicily. 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.
