Azienda Agricola COS is a Biodynamically farmed estate located in the Vittoria region of southeastern Sicily. The estate is run by childhood friends Giambattista Cilia and Giusto Occhipinti, uncle of the famed winegrower Arriana Occhipinti. Frappato, a grape that shares a genetic similarity with Sangiovese, is pale in color and produces light to medium bodied wines with a great balance of freshness and floral intensity, and the wines are drinkably low in alcohol.
