Sold out.

nutmeg, red cherry, elegant
Giusto Occhipinti started the COS winery with two classmates back in the early 1980s, making organic wine in the south-eastern province of Ragusa, around the town of Vittoria - home to Cerasuolo di Vittoria, a red wine made from 60 percent Nero d’Avola and 40 percent Frappato. This is a bottling of 100% Frappato, known for it’s floral, perfumed freshness. A bright red colour, the wine shows notes of violets, freesia and cherryblossom. The palate is sweet and round, suggestive of raspberries and succulent cherries – the tannins barely evident.
