Cellar/Tasting Notes
Azienda Agricola COS was founded by Giambattista Cilia, Giusto Occhipinti and Cirino Strano, three friends who wanted to recreate the work of their ancestors. The winery is so named COS as it is an acronym for the first letters of their last names. The three friends became the youngest winemakers in Italy in 1980 when they bought Joseph Cilia's old family winery. Today, COS is synonymous with Cerasuolo di Vittoria. Their love of the region and its singular terroir produces some of the finest wines Italy has to offer.

The wine exhibits a natural smell of wine with cherry perfumes accentuated by soil and mineral sensors. On the palate, the wine is persistent and round with an harmonious character that leaves a clean taste.
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate (RP): 96
"The 2010 Maldafrica is the single wine that left the longest lasting impression on me following my grand tasting of Sicilian wine in February 2014. The blend is 50-50 Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot and the wine ages in oak for 12 months. It’s hard to know where to start because there’s so much to say. First off, this is a wine that does not carry its beauty in an obvious manner. It’s a subtle, nuanced stunner that gracefully seduces your senses following its own determined schedule. In other words, it’s not love at first sight: It’s love after a steady and tireless courtship. Once it has proven what it’s worth, Maldafrica lavishes the senses with dark fruit, spice, chopped herb, saline notes, brimstone, leather and moist tobacco. The mouthfeel is incredibly long, lasting way over a minute and the acidity offers the perfect level of tartness to keep your senses refreshed. Many years ago, someone told me that love for Sicily is like a “maldafrica” (an inner nostalgia for a distant land) and I have often used the term to describe my own feelings for the Mediterranean island."
