Smooth and very accessible, this lovely Sicilian red wine is sufficient in itself as an aperitif. Pairing with charcuterie and local cheese would be perfect! More info

Pithos Rouge is produced from Frappato and Nero d'Avola grapes grown at an altitude of 230 metres in Apennine sand and tufa limestone soil. This wine is matured in amphorae, allowing the grape to express its terroir to the full: on tasting, the wine presents a bouquet of red berries, with attractive floral notes (peony and rose). Direct, clear and natural, it reveals a remarkable purity and is elegant and refreshing. It is a wine to drink with a meal, but would also serve well on its own as an apéritif.

IGP Sicile Azienda Agricola Cos Pithos serve at a temperature of 16°C. It will pair perfectly with the following dishes: Risotto aux girolles, Brochettes de lotte, Terrine aux deux saumons.

Information about domain Azienda Agricola Cos

The three young winegrowers Giambattista Cilia, Giusto Occhipinti and Cirino Strano, founded Azienda Agricola COS in 1980 in Bastonaca, in south-eastern Sicily, initially producing 1,470 bottles from just 3 hectares. They subsequently expanded the domaine to 50 hectares and made the transition to biodynamic management and the use of terracotta amphorae in 2000. The domaine name COS is an acronym for the names of the three friends who founded it. Their cuvées overall are of good quality and are a fine tribute to their great terroirs whose winemaking reputation extends right back to Antiquity.
