Cos Rami Bianco 2020
REGION Sicily, Italy
GRAPE Insolia, Grecanico
Apricots - Floral - Orange Peel
One of our favourite Sicilian wine producers - this is a light skin contact wine, with floral notes, stone fruit & orange peel coming through. A great intro in to the world orange wines.
Spontaneous fermentation in concrete tank. 7-10 days of skin contact. Aged in concrete for 9 months and naturally settled before bottling.
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.
Try this with a washed rind cheese like Rollright.
