COS 2018 "Zibibbo in Pithos" Bianco, Terre Siciliane IGP, Sicily, Italy

Farming: Biodynamic

Winemaker: Giusto Occhipinti

Varieties: Zibibbo (100%)

History: In the 1980s, three friends (Giambattista Cilia, Giusto Occhipinti, Cirino Strano), at the time the youngest wine producers in Italy, began a wine label in hopes to bring Sicily back to its origins.  They received an old family winery from Giambattista Cilia’s father Giuseppe Cilia and the nearby vineyard of bush trained vines. The winery follows the principles of biodynamic farming in order to help the vines find and maintain a balance with nature in order to be able to express their true character and that of their terroir. 

Terroir: The 2018 Zibibbo in Pithos is made of Zibibbo grapes sourced from Marsala, in western Sicily. 

Vinification: The wine is spontaneously fermented on its skins with indigenous yeast over ten to fifteen days in amphorae. The wine is aged in amphorae and bottle. Pithos is the Greek word for amphora.
