From COS, one of Sicily’s true benchmark producers, who are certified organic and farm biodynamically. They emphasise wines of purity and freshness, rely exclusively on indigenous yeasts and eschew any overt oak influence.
The Rami is a skin contact ‘orange’ white wine made from 50% Grecanico (a Sicilian variety of Soave’s grape, Garganega) and 50% Insolia. The wine spends a week on skins before being aged for 9 months in neutral vats. This wine has gorgeous aromatics, leading into honeyed peach and orchard fruits with gentle tannins adding depth and texture. An intriguing wine from a benchmark producer of the style, this is a great introduction to orange wines.
