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.

  • Phitos Cerasuolo di Vittoria Anfora Cos Cos Vino Bianco 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

  • Azienda Agricola Cos Cerasuolo di Vittoria Classic 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

  • Phitos Cerasuolo di Vittoria Anfora Cos Cos Vino Bianco 2010

    Snoothrank:

    Gorgeously aromatic nose of flowers, herbs, briar wood, blueberries and raspberries. Bright and juicy in the mouth with a layered palate impression that starts off with a rush of bright black cherry fruit, which is followed by a rich wave of ripe yet astringent fruit (which is notably aromatic), ending on a richly fruited black cherry finish. Th... Read More

  • Cos Frappato 2009

    Snoothrank:

    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 ... Read More

  • Just thought I would share three videos on Bordeaux 2010, from en primeur week. I like how Bill Blatch for example lends a certain realism to the tasting experience, although I did not find the wines THAT difficult to taste. Certainly 2009 was easier to taste en primeur, it was a more immediately flattering tasting experience on the whole. As wa... Read More
