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.

  • Château Cos d'Estournel Red Bordeaux Blend St. Estèphe 1986

    Snoothrank:

    The nose showed blackberry jam, sweet spices, coffee notes and fresh turned earth. On the palate, I found aged red fruits and herbs, which faded into the long juicy finish. A very fine example of aged Bordeaux made in a classic style. Read More

  • Cos Destournel Saint Estephe 1989

    Snoothrank:

    The nose was savory and meaty with dark red fruits, sweet cinnamon spice and hint of liquor. On the palate, it was big and rich with ripe, juicy fruit and herbal tea. The finish was mouth-coating but turned juicy with a slight medicinal note. This was a very sexy wine that was more fun to drink than to think about. Read More

Nice of him to do so since it's another from St. Estephe.Completely different style of wine from a chateau not that far away from Meyney.

  • Cerasuolo Vittoria Classico Cos 2007

    Snoothrank:

    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 Read More

  • Cos Cerasuolo di Vittoria Classico 2006

    Snoothrank:

    Very evolved on the nose with real autumnal character. Soft and loose in the mouth with fruit that is a touch roasted, though there are nice mineral, clay and burnished cherry flavors that end abruptly. 84pts Read More

  • Cos Cerasuolo di Vittoria Classico 2008

    Snoothrank:

    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 Read More

  • Cerasuolo Vittoria Classico Cos 2009

    Snoothrank:

    Floral on the nose with lightly roasted red fruits topped with hints of rosemary, seaweed and a salty edginess. Sweet fruit on entry with a nice bed of soft tannins offering support. The acidity is perhaps a touch low, failing on the finish, though the lightly perfumed fruit does linger. 87pts Read More
