Wine Advocate 91 points - A bright and elegant red, with fine tannins framing flavors of crushed mulberry and dried fig, accented by hints of woodsy spice and fresh earth. This does a good impression of a Nuits-St.-Georges. Drink now through 2021. 6,000 cases made.
The 2008 Cerasuolo di Vittoria Classico flows with the essence of dark wild cherries. It possesses beautful inner perfume and density, without coming across as heavy. The long, pure finish is beautifully articulated with layers of fruit. It is a sensual red that takes Cerasuolo to new heights. The Cerasuolo is 60% Nero d'Avola (aged in cask) and 40% Frappato (aged in cement). Anticipated maturity: 2011-2015. This is quite possibly the finest set of wines I have ever tasted from COS. Readers owe it to themselves to check out these ambitious wines, many of which also deliver phenomenal value. Wine Advocate
