School friends Giambattista Cilia (C), Giusto Occhipinti (O) and Pinuccia Strano (S) began making wine for pleasure and ended up creating a company that would become one of the most well-known in Sicilia. They rented their parentsâ€™ lands and began harvesting, pressing grapes, and making wine. They continue to operate with this independence of spirit, doing largely without an oenologist, basing winemaking decisions on their considerable experience and intuition. COS is a lifelong project of expressing the terroir, passion, and culture of this part of Sicily in its truest form. The Nero dâ€™Avola Scyri is ruby red in color with garnet highlights. The wine emits intense and clean aromas of plum, black cherry, vanilla, tobacco, licorice and even a hint of eucalyptus. On the palate it has a good correspondence with the nose. It is well balanced between tannins, alcohol and acidity. Long finish.
