Cos Pithos Rosso 2016
Front and back

Review:

Pithos Rosso is made from a blend of Frappato and Nero d'Avola, two of Italy's native varieties which complement each other aromatically, the first with floral and spicy notes and the second with other more earthy and balsamic hints. The grapes ferment by means of indigenous yeasts, in terracotta amphoras wedged into the ground in order to keep the temperature and humidity constant. In ancient times, ceramic containers were used when producing wine, but obviously at some point the use of wood and steel became preferable. Cos has been the first Sicilian winery to reintroduce this ancient tradition, since terracotta also allows the wine to breathe, yet unlike oak, it doesn't alter it. The winery thus follows a business philosophy focused on the production of natural wines and on the preservation of the individual characteristics possessed by the vineyard and terroir.

Pithos Rosso enables us to savour the Vittoria terroir in all its flair and intensity, to taste its fruit and the minerality of its soils. In the glass, it appears a bright red colour and at first exudes aromas of flowers and red fruits. An open nose that makes its presence known, with an aromatic bouquet in which also figure wild mushrooms and undergrowth, aromatic herbs, and a minerality that heralds a most pleasant and flavoursome wine.

On the palate, it again emphasises the fruit and the soil, vigorously and resolutely. A wine that has brisk acidity, that's fruity and earthy, fragrant, full of life and cheerfulness.
