Product Description

60% Nero d’Avola/40% Frappato *Organic Wine* "Pithos" is almost the same wine as COS' Cerasuolo di Vittoria, save for an important distinction; the Nero D'Avola/Frappato blend ferments and ages in clay amphorae, thus losing DOCG status but gaining cult appeal -- as well as minerality and texture -- from these ancient aging vessels. In fact, the estate was one of the contemporary wine scene's earliest adopters of amphorae, influencing their neighbors like Vino di Anna as well as countless producers on the mainland.

The Pithos Rosso is fermented in giare which are terracotta amphorae (250l and 400l). The identity of the Frappato is marked on the nose with exuberant expression of violets and raspberry blossom. The mouth is floral, warm and supple, the berry fruit flavours complemented by soft tannins.
