COS Nero di Lupo (Red)

£26.50

COS Nero di Lupo is an unfiltered biodynamic Sicilian red wine made with 100% Nero d’Avola. On the nose this wine has aromas of pomegranate and cloves with warm tannic notes. On the palate, complex and mineral with dried fruit flavours backed up with notes of almonds and smoke.

A dark crimson red in colour with the tannins giving this wine excellent structure and a smooth and lingering finish. Unfiltered and oak aged for up to 24 months, this wine is rich and intense and pairs well with hearty ragus and sauces.

Produced by Cos Winery, which was founded in 1980 by three friends and expert winemakers. Giambattista Cilia + Giusto Occhipinti + Cirino Strano = COS! Located at the farthest tip of south eastern Sicily in Vittoria, Ragusa.

Cos are leaders in the wine industry, where all their wines tell a story and the story of the Sicilian land. With the Mediterranean climate hosting milder temperatures than other areas of Ragusa, as well as African roots from various architectural ruins, vegetation of olives, carob, almond trees and vines abound, this unique climate works together with Cos to create unique wines.

Certified organic and with the maceration process taking place in traditional terracotta Amphora, earthenware jars, the process produces natural micro-oxygenation without added flavors/aromas. As well as temperature regulation, preservation of wine freshness, cleanliness, Amphora is a beautiful way to age wines and also last forever when well maintained.

Food Pairing – Caponata siciliana, cotoletta di palermitano, cotoletta di melanzane, pasta alla norma
