I love this vintage of pithos bianco! To me, the COS pithos wines take many twists and turns as they age; at present, the 2019 is quite lively and complex. A scrubby, humid, savory aroma like a wet mangrove that seems distinct to vittoria grecanico & inzolia based wines. The palate is gracefully long with svelte tannin... wet hot black sand beach, black olive brine, oolong, and perhaps an echo of spicy stonefruit or candied ginger. Begging to slice through a buttery lemon spritzed blackened shrimp and a crusty bread for sopping! — 4 days ago
