Az. Ag. Cos, Frappato 2020
Talk about energy. Christ! I think I've a natural inclination toward Frappato, I love its expression and transparency. Good bit of Pinosity about it. This has all that, with the added wildness that is COS. Just drink this, it is astoundingly delicious, has plenty of depth and will make everyone smile and lick their lips.

The fact that we get to drink Sicilian wine en masse these days is largely thanks to COS. Three school mates pretty much single-handedly put Sicily on the international wine drinking map following a period of full decline. Giambattista Cilia, Cirino Strano, and Giusto Occhipinti (COS is an ancronym of their surnames) settled into their current style of natural, unaltered wines from organic and biodynamically farmed vineyards. They use only wild yeasts, and clay amphorae are a signature of their work. Now tried and tested the wines of COS should be on everyone's list, natural fan or not. They are the real thing.
