Cos Frappato 2020
REGION: Sicily, Italy
Spice - Fresh - Strawberry
This is unoaked and very juicy, easy drinking yet complex. Notes of warm spice and red fruits with tannins and acidity holding it all together. A delicious example of a natural Italian red.
COS was started in 1980 and is so called due to the initials of the surnames of the 3 founders - Giambattista Cilia, Giusto Occhipinti and Pinuccia Strano.
The estate is based in the town of Vittoria in the Ragusa province of south east Sicily and was originally begun on a shoestring budget. Today, however, COS produces some of the finest wines on the island from native grape varieties such as Frappato, Nero d'Avola, Grecanico and Inzolia.
