Pithos Bianco Terre Siciliane Grecanico 2015

Mandarins, wildflowers. Brilliant orange. Fairly tannic, but not out of balance. Clean and well-made. #cos #sicilia — 9 months ago

Pithos Bianco Terre Siciliane Grecanico 2013

Orange wine indeed! Fresh, sweet citrus, peach skin and fresh herbs, subtle and very fine tannin. Terracotta amphorae aged on skins with indigenous yeast. 100% Grecanico and organic. Completely clear and no hazy and milky look to the appearance. I like this a lot! #skinferment #sicilia #orangewine #cos — 4 years ago

That's the only wine fermented and aged in steel. The pithos rosso is amphora. But that one is still fun. Bright fruit and great acidity. Love #COS

Cerasuolo di Vittoria Classico Frappato Nero d'Avola 2012

Nero d'Avola and Frappato in roughly equal measure aged in clay amphora. Cherry as the name indicates indeed, as well as strawberry immediately and currants with 2 or so hours of air. A lot of floral notes up front reminded me of Barolo, especially with the mineral notes and the silky, but firm tannins. This is the best wine in a while for me from Sicily not from Mt. Etna. I am looking forward to trying more from COS and Occhipinti who is the "O" in #COS. #sicily #frappato #cerasuolo #docg #amphora — 4 years ago

Terre Siciliane Frappato 2014

A good example of a well made Frappato with more depth, but still retains the elegance and freshness typical of wine from this grape. Excellent with grilled swordfish and grilled asparagus. #cos #sicily — 3 years ago

Quite a spicy Cos. This will likely not improve with more time but very nice now nonetheless #cos #bordeaux #stestephe — 4 years ago
