Description

Giusto Occhipinti of COS is a benchmark producer in the Vittoria appellation of Sicily, and certainly one of the most important and influential producers in all of Sicily, if not Italy as a whole. The winery was founded in 1980 by three friends, Giambattista Cilia, Giusto Occhipinti, and Cirino Strano. The initials of their last names form the winerys name. Throughout the entire range there is a focus on elegance and purity, and their Pithos Rosso is no exception. A blend of Nero d'Avola (60%) & Frappato (40%), the Pithos Rosso was aged for six months in clay amphorae followed by 2-3 months in concrete tanks. Open and generous, with beautiful aromas of red berries, roses, and Sicilian earth. Juicy, elegant, and poised on the palate, with crisp tannins and refreshing acidity...like all COS wines, the Pithos Rosso is such a joy to drink! Distributor Notes
