Two COS Wines for Summer! Sassicaia Sale! And Cupano Magnums!
April 16, 2014
A Note from Sergio

Invaded by Greeks, Goths, Gauls, Neapolitans, Byzantines, Arabs, Bourbons and more, Sicilia is a much-contested property. In 1946, it became Regione Autonoma Siciliana, the Autnomous Region of Sicilia, and so it remains--both a part of unified Italy and separate from it. Based in Sicilia, COS, a winery named for the first letters in the last names of the three friends who own and operate it, has always been devoted to the biodynamic cultivation and traditional crafting of indigenous grapes--until recently, when it added the international grapes Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot for their amazing blend Maldafrica. It's a fine estate, and one that's emblematic of the wild island it calls home.

COS very much embodies the best of Italy. It's an amicable cooperation between different entities that embraces Italian tradition even as it innovates. Today, I'm proud to debut a pair of COS wines, COS 2010 Rami and 2011 Frappato. The estate has made these wines pretty much since its inception in 1980. Both lovingly crafted from indigenous grapes, these wines are amazing--pure, nuanced, vibrant and complex. The Frappato, a light-bodied dry red, evokes the tiny little fragoline di bosco, the tiny wild strawberries, that grow on the island. The Rami is layered, like sunlight filtering through the leaves of a Moreton Bay Fig, these giant gnarl-trunked trees that dot the island. Both are extraordinary and perfect for warm weather.

Along with these two Sicilian wines, I'm proud to present special pricing on a legendary wine--the 1999 Sassicaia. Fifteen years of maturity, a straight-line provenance, a benchmark vintage, and the greatest of all the Super Tuscans: this wine will floor you. Finally, I'm very pleased to present large-format bottlings of Cupano Brunello di Montalcino and Rosso di Montalcino. You can't find these wines anywhere else, and I know you'll fall in love with them as I did. The magnums will help you share that love.

These are wines to celebrate today, tomorrow, and months from now. Salute!
