ABOUT: First, the name. COS is the first initial of the surnames of the 3 friends who started making wine together on the island of Sicily in the 1980s. Through much trial and error, beginning with used barrels, then new barrels, back to used barrels, now no barrels, they have become terracotta amphorae ambassadors due to the success of their wine called Pithos. Stuffs amazing. Biodynamic practices too, they are all about it, and the guys are architects and built an amazing inn on their property. Sally and I are already planning the trip.

TASTE:

Fontane is a region within Vittoria where COS’s best parcels of vineyards dwell. This amazing specimen of a wine is a blend of 60% Nero d'Avola and 40% Frappato and has strong aromas and flavors of dried cherries, blackberries, potting soil, dark chocolate, baking spices, orange peel, dates and figs. Medium body and acid and the tannins are fine and well blended. This wine has a vibrating, nervy energy and will age for decades for the better. Development is underway but there are still many good years ahead. Totally unique and a shining example of how great Sicilian wines can be. I’m surprised and thrilled that a wine like this is affordable. I just got back from a tasting of wines that cost twice this amount and don’t come close in quality.

PAIR: Olive tapenade, baked Aneletti, pickled garlic scapes, fried polenta, caponata, and Pesto alla trapanese.
