2011 Azienda Agricola COS Cerasuolo di Vittoria, $34

"COS is one of my favorite producers–period. Its mainstay wine is this blend of Nero d'Avola and Frappato grapes from a cooler area of Sicily near the town of Vittoria. Medium-bodied and full of fresh cherry and red tomato notes, it has an unbelievable capacity to match the really tough-to-pair combination of Mediterranean ingredients–chile flakes, tomatoes, olives, anchovies and capers–in dishes like Puttanesca. The COS really comes to life with those flavors."
