COS have championed the rare grape Frappato since the inception of this project in 1980 by owners Giusto Occhipinti and Titta Cilia. Seeing the potential of Frappato, they set about to make a wine with unique character, intense but extremely fresh and light on its feet. Hailing from Vittoria in Southeast Sicily, the Frappato is grown organically on sandy soils and fermented in concrete to retain the varietal freshness. 

Other Reviews....
Remarkably pretty, the 2022 Frappato opens with a cascade of violets and lavender, giving way to citrus and blackberries. It's soft and soothing on the palate with ripe wild berry fruits and licorice motivated by crisp acidity. It finishes long and with a liquid floral staining, yet freshness is expertly maintained through it all. The 2022 goes down far too quickly and at just 12.5% abv. Drink 2023 - 2027.
