"Wonderful maturity, great elegance with wild raspberry, flowers and raw pistachio, slightly sweet and salty at the same time (...) It contains many elements that recall a young Barolo with powdered liquorice and dried ginger. " 

With an intense ruby red colour, the nose evokes red fruits, strawberries and raspberries, and floral notes of peonies and roses. The palate has fleshy fruit, delicious and very ripe, with beautiful intensity, a velvety and soft texture, and good density mid-palate. The tannins are very fine, well integrated, already blended. The ensemble is very balanced and can be appreciated now since we have deliberately selected a vintage that is already at peak maturity. 

COS was started in 1980 and is so called due to the initials of the surnames of the 3 founders - Giambattista Cilia, Giusto Occhipinti and Pinuccia Strano. The estate is based in the town of Vittoria in the Ragusa province of south east Sicily and was originally begun on a shoestring budget. Today, however, COS produces some of the finest wines on the island from native grape varieties such as Frappato, Nera d'Avola, Grecanico and Inzolia.
