#Vinnatur - This one is the evidence that they can provide some sort of "natural" approach to wine without bad failures or foggy liquids. Chapeau!

Good not great. Excited about a Nero d'Avola from Sicily but Frankly fell flat.

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

Thin, uninspired on its own. Perked up a little bit with food
