IN PITHOS ZIBIBBO 2020 - COS

0,75 L Orange Wine / Italy / Sicily / Terre Siciliane IGP / 12,5 % vol / 100% Zibibbo

"This wine is aged for several months on the skins in amphorae to bring out a dimension and complexity with slightly oxidized aromas that are reminiscent of caramel and dried apricots (...) the result is gorgeous! " R. Parker
A 100% Zibibbo wine (the Sicilian name for the Muscat of Alexandria) from young vines, grown organically and biodynamically, situated to the west of the island in the Marsala area, at just 12 metres above sea level. Here we find a climate that has a strong influence particularly between hot days and cool nights. The harvest is of course manual; it is aged for 10 months in buried amphorae, the same method used by the first producers of wine in the world. Finally, micro doses of sulphur are added to the bottle. The result is simply fantastic.

COS

Azienda Agricola COS was founded in 1980 by Giambattista Cilia, Giusto Occhipinti and Cirino Strano: three friends then students who wanted to return to the vine and to the wine, the work of their ancestors. The initials of their names formed that of the estate, originally made up of 3 hectares of vines for hire from the old family property: the first wine was born in 1980, with only 1470 bottles produced. From the beginning of the 90s, the principles of biodynamic viticulture were applied to find and maintain a natural harmony allowing the wine to fully express the character of the terroirs on which the vines are located. The use of terracotta amphorae, which offer thermal inertia, preservation of the fruit and provide no exogenous flavor, began in September 2000 with the Pithos cuvée, and which gradually affirmed the unique style of wines from the COS domaine. This domaine thus finds itself the pioneer of wine making in amphorae, undoubtedly the only one at the time to experiment outside Georgia. Giusto Occhipinti (who is Arianna's uncle, a talented winegrower) began in the early 2000s an intellectual exchange with Elisabetta Foradori, who will contribute to mutually enrich their visions of wine and install fruitful research directed towards the expression of the more natural wine.
