Tasting note from dated Feb 12, 2019 copyright Peter Mueller


In dark purple with garnet red rim, the wine shows clear and shiny from the glass.


With a pronounced earthiness and subtle leatheriness, this amphora wine of Nero d'Avola and Frappato has the fruit locked away for now and demands some air and patience, as well as a big glass. Plums and dates, as well as figs and Amarena cherries, only emerge in close association with gingerbread spice, tobacco leaf and almond speculoos, as well as the distinct aromas of black tea.


From the first sip, the 2016 Pithos Rosso from COS balances aromatic splendor, subtlety and fullness on the one hand, but on the other hand, a lean, defined body, vibrant acidity and juicy nonchalance. Puristic red fruitiness paired with grounded spice and straightforward honesty makes this wine a precisely successful self-portrait.

Food recommendations from Peter Müller

  • Chanterelles au gratin with rosemary butter and pimentos de Padron
  • Osso Bucco with grilled fennel, yellow chilli and tagliatelle
  • Roasted black pudding with apple-onion-herb, red wine shallots and mashed potatoes
