COS Pithos Rosso is a red natural wine made from a blend of 60% Nero d'Avola, 40% Frappato - certified organic - sourced from estate vineyards in the hamlet of Bastonica in the Vittoria area, Sicily, Italy. Pithos Rosso undergoes spontaneous fermentation on the skins in concrete tanks for 10-15 days with indigenous yeast in amphorae.
Pithos Rosso is then aged for six months in amphorae followed by 2-3 months in concrete tanks. Finally three months in the bottle before release. Star winemaker Giusto Occhipinti is one of the masters of amphora-aging in Italy.
