Elba, Ischia, Sardinia, Sicily: the wines are now widely available, but as late as 2001, when we opened, they were few and far between. But it's not surprising that with the Islands - as in all regions of Italy - Luigi Veronelli was way ahead of his time. So there are many super-rare bottles
in this offer, including the oldest bottles of COS in captivity, and the initial seven vintages (of eight produced) of the famous Rosso del Conte, really the first Sicilian wine of internationally recognized quality. Other than some very old Marsala, the 1970 Corvo and Rosse del Conte are the oldest bottles of dry Sicilian wine I've seen.
*Lunch at COS, made by Giusto Occhipinti himself - spaghetti, asparagus, peas, tomato, ricotta salata. Last Saturday's farmer's market yielded the first asparagus of the season, but you could make a delicious version of the dish with many alternate vegetables. Whatever you come up with, the green freshness, crunch, acidity, and salty cheese will go beautifully with these wines. Jamie Wolff
