Love the wines from COS. Nero d Avola and frappato, bright cherry, great acidity, focused minerality

Slow to open. Warm red fruit, with a complex earthy finish, mineral texture and refined tannins.

If Pithos appeals to the mind, the Cerosuolo speaks to the body: lush and ripe red fruit. The use of wood casks provides lushness and vigor. It's full of life.

I can't drink this wine without smiling - tastes like pure red fruit, hot rocks, Sicily and bright sunshine.

This is quite nice. Very flavorful, a little funky. Lots of earth and blue and black fruits. Gave it about an hour in the decanter and served slightly chilled.

Very slightly funky but not that fizzy natural wine feel. Tannic at first but really opens up to be light and easy drinking. Nice chilled. 2018 vintage
