A cuvée of 100% Zibibbo (the Sicilian name for Muscat of Alexandria) from young, 13-year-old vines, farmed organically and biodynamically, and located in the west of the island in the Marsala sector, almost at sea level (12 meters altitude). The climate has a strong influence here, with particularly hot days and cool nights. The grapes are harvested by hand of course, followed by maturation in amphorae, and just a microdose of sulphur at bottling.
Giusto Occhipinti is Arianna’s uncle, but above all he is her mentor. He founded this vineyard in 1980 with two friends. From the first letters of their three names (Cilia, Occhipinti, Strano) came the name of Domaine COS. From three hectares in 1980, they grew to 10 ha in 1990, then they acquired a further 20 hectares in 2005. Giambattista Cilia and Giusto Occhipinti, who now run the estate...All wines
