COS Frappato Siciliana, 2020, 750ml
COS is a benchmark producer in the Vittoria appellation of Sicily, and certainly one of the most important, influential producers in all of Sicily, if not Italy as a whole. Throughout the entire range there is a focus on elegance and purity, especially the joyous, floral Frappato, Sicily's answer to Cru Beaujolais. The 2020 COS Frappato is a pure delight. Light ruby colored in the glass, the aroma has a pretty perfume of wild flowers, red berry blossoms and herbal spices. In the mouth, flavors of raspberry, orange peel and sweet spices emerge with subtle acidity and soft tannins. There's beautiful freshness and vibrancy in every sip and at 11.5 alcohol, this is a great wine to put a light chill on for summer quaffing.
