Azienda Agricola COS (Sizilien) | Frappato Rosso Sicilia IGT & Cerasuolo di Vittoria Classico DOCG

Niklas Jörgensen von WINE VIRTUOSITY ist “verliebt“ und zwar in die Weine der Azienda Agricola COS. Auch wir sind den bemerkenswerten Amphorenweinen aus Sizilien vor einiger Zeit erlegen und möchten diese enthusiastische Verkostungsnotiz sehr gern mit Ihnen teilen:

“2010 Frappato, IGT, Azienda Agricola COS
100 per cent Frappato and I just love this one! From south-east facing vineyards at 250 meters above the sea level. Young vines; only around eight years old. No dense color here. Clear red simply. I’m using the burgundy shaped glasses for Frappato and the wine’s slightly chilled. Aromatic nose with lots of sweet strawberries, gentle spices, licorice, flowers and humus. Just a touch of cherries as well. No oak at all here. On the palate you get the contrast from the nose. Much drier. Light style but with seductive mouth-watering acidity, mashed strawberries and black cherries, discrete oriental spices and summer flowers. Some smoke and wet rocks feel as well. Really fine and clean length. This one you want to gulp but still it’s an intellectual wine. Try and you will understand!”

Der Cerasuolo di Vittoria Classico ist ebenfalls ein sinnliches Vergnügen:

“60 per cent Nero d’Avola and the rest Frappato.The latter has aged in concrete tanks and the Nero in used oak. Same altitude as the previous bottle but the vines has an average age of twenty years. More color to this one although no scary dark monster. This looks like wine actually! More funk on the nose; leather, compost, dark cherries, licorice and violets. Evolves and shows more complexity on the second day when the floral notes turns this, at first more solid wine, in to a beauty. Good tannic grip, higher acidity than the Frappato and more depth. Licorice, humus, dark bitter cherries and violets. Long, lingering finish.”
