This is one of the most interesting wines to come from the Vittoria area of Sicily. The 2017 Frappato is tonic and sharp, linear and direct. This wine reveals more depth and nuances than you might expect. It always renders a naked, authentic and transparent expression. The winemakers at COS have added their own little tweaks with touches of balsam herb and bitter almond that appear randomly along the way. This wine is only aged in cement, no oak is used.

Sicily is the largest island in the Mediterranean and has a long history of wine production dating back to ancient times. The island's warm climate and volcanic soil provide ideal conditions for growing a variety of grapes, including Nero d'Avola, Grillo, and Catarratto.

Sicilian wines are known for their bold, full-bodied flavors and high alcohol content. Red wines from the region are particularly popular, with Nero d'Avola being the most widely planted grape variety. These wines are characterized by their dark fruit flavors, such as black cherry and plum, and often have a spicy finish.

White wines from Sicily are also gaining popularity, with Grillo being the most commonly used grape variety. These wines are known for their crisp acidity and citrus flavors, such as lemon and grapefruit.

In addition to wine, Sicily is also known for its production of Marsala, a fortified wine made from a blend of white grapes. This wine is aged for a minimum of one year and has a rich, caramel-like flavor.

Overall, Sicily is a region with a rich history of wine production and a diverse range of styles to offer. Its wines are gaining recognition on the international stage and are definitely worth exploring.
