COS was making natural wine before there was a natural wine scene. Founded by three friends in the 80s, they focused on making wines true to the land and heritage of Sicily using long-produced native grapes threatened by the wine industrys move towards international varieties.
The frappato grape is a favourite of ours – particularly when fermented and aged in concrete which highlights its luscious fruit flavours & fragrant quality. This is summer juice, bright and fresh with some grip - totally quaffable. Perfect with cheese (particularly sheep’s or goats’), charcuterie or tomato-pasta dishes.
