COS Cerasuolo di Vittoria ‘Pithos’ DOCG

By / Wine + Drinks / January 7th, 2010 / 2

A blend of Nero d’Avola and Frappato di Vittoria, the wine is actually produced in terracotta amphora buried in rock with the fermentation allowed to occur naturally without temperature control. The maceration and fermentation last 7 months. The beautifully perfumed nose is reminiscent of pure red fruits with hints of mineral, spice, and earth. The palate is silky smooth, with bright cherry and plum, spice, and a hint of earth. This is an outstanding wine that exerts itself with graceful elegance as opposed to brute strength.
