Color

In rich shining golden yellow the wine with tendency to the copper-colored and discreet yeast cloudiness shows up brilliantly in the glass.

Nose

This pure Grecanico from the amphora already makes clear with the blunt honesty and forcefulness of its first nose that it is not for connoisseurs who do not allow the wine they have in the glass a life of its own. Its oxidative style, already suggested by its appearance, is expressed through notes of subtly brownish-yellow apple, as well as the winning trio of rum, grape, nut. Nevertheless, its aroma is marked by meticulous precision and density. Tart and ethereal scents of liquorice, tarragon and a hint of anise, but also the freshness of whey complete the aroma spectrum.

Palate

On the palate, the 2015 Pithos Bianco from Azienda Agricola Cos presents an exciting paradox between coolness and warmth. On the one hand, the fresh fruitiness of the wine unfolds retronasally and is enlivened by a taut acid arc; on the other hand, a velvety and texture-giving tannin framework spreads leisurely and full-bodied over the palate and results in ethereal length. All this density and materiality of a full-grown wine with wonderful stubbornness and local patriotism are hidden in only 11%vol.

Brilliant food companion!
