COS Frappato 2010

Posted by

A brief note for a wine that you can drink by the bucketful. Extremely pretty aromatics, long and light on the palate, but versatile with food. And, even though the Sicilian COS is a naturalist producer, here we have a perfectly clean and correct example of the Frappato grape. Absolutely delicious.

What is Frappato? It is generally considered an unimportant low-tannin grape native to Sicily. COS turns it into something special. The 2010 vintage particularly highlights their prowess with the grape.

Excellent
$33 at BCLDB and Highly Recommended Value

    Hello Shea,
    WineQuest imports the COS wines to western Canada. Just a quick note to say thanks so very much for your comments. We are so glad you enjoyed their tasty Frappato! Hopefully, it will inspire others to venture further than Cabernet, Shiraz, Merlot (or other well known grapes) to try something out of the ordinary.

    Barb,

    Thanks for the comment. I certainly hope it does and please keep up the good work bringing in such wines and producers as COS. Any word on whether you will be bringing in the whites or the amphora fermented wines?

    Shea
