Tasting Notes
A dark crimson red in color. On the nose, aromas of pomegranate and cloves with warm tannic notes. On the palate, complex and mineral with dried fruit flavors backed up with notes of almonds and smoke. The tannins give this wine excellent structure and the finish is smooth and lingering.

The winery itself dates back to the 1880’s during a period in which there was huge demand for Sicilian wines. Phylloxera had already devastated many of the world’s top wine growing regions but it had not yet reached the island. Sicily has a long history of winemaking, dating back to the 8th century BCE when the Greeks first planted grapes in the eastern part of the Island. It is only more recently though that true top quality wines and winemaking have arrived there. It was through the hard work and dedication of producers such as COS who showed the potential of Sicily’s terroir and drew attention to the island, especially its ability to produce complex, pure and fresh wines, despite its location at the very southern tip of Italy.
