Like all of Conterno's wines, this Barbera under went extended maceration in large casks, aging for 21 months in large Slovanian barrels. Dark ruby red in color. It offers a delightful nose of red berries, black cherries, roses, anise, leather and mineral notes.

2016 Sicilia Frappato COS

Giusto Occhipinti started the COS winery with two school friends back in the early 1980’s. Fascinated by the ancient cellar practice, COS decided to work with amphoras, clay jars that were used by the ancient Greeks, and cement tanks. The frappato grape for this wine grows in sandy soils interwoven with clay and tuffa. The fermentation is with indigenous yeast in amphora, and after about six months the wine is further aged in cement and and later in bottle.
