+ Add a winery image 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.

    Very perfumed and rich with minerals and lots of brushy, dry fruit topped with nuanced smoke notes on the nose. Bright, focused, austere and classically Bordeaux on entry with great fruit on the palate. This is a little nervous in the mouth, with bright red fruits and grapey nuance underpinned by powerful, ripe, if small tannins. Finishes with g... Read More
