Review

The winery belonging to Giambattista Cilia, Cirino Strano and Giusto Occhipinti needs no introduction. It is one of the main biodynamic wineries in Italy, and without a doubt a main player in the rebirth of Sicilian wine focused on excellence and eco-sustainability. In particular, the work of the three pioneering winemakers has influenced the history of the Cerasuolo di Vittoria, which COS also offers in this splendid single-vineyard version.

Twenty-year-old vineyards at 200 metres above sea level, perfectly exposed on calcareous red earth soils, with inserts of sand and clay. The harvest is slightly late and vinification is in a completely natural amphora, with spontaneous fermentation, as per the winery’s philosophy. These are the ingredients for a textbook Cerasuolo di Vittoria.

The colour is a lively ruby, it is fresh and young, and expresses a picky but modern interpretation of this DOCG, the only one in Sicily. The bouquet is pleasantly fruity and spicy, pulpy and persuasive but not tiring, multifaceted and complex. On the palate it is fresh, thin, with tannins which are prominent but perfectly integrated into the structure and alcohol. Tasty, sometimes opulent depending on the vintage, good sapidity and always enveloping. It is an excellent meal wine but also for quiet thought, given the perfect balance that will definitely keep on having even after many years.

    This is an outstanding wine. We are saving these for special occasions. It has a lot of body to it but not a bully with some nice savoury notes to it
