Overview of the Wine
In the 80s the Coppo company decided to make a change in the production of Barbera, greatly reducing the yields in the vineyard and introducing the use of barriques for the maturation phase; the family wanted to make this grape more noble, making it known with peaks of excellence that no longer relegated it to a purely regional consumption. It was then, more precisely in 1984, that the "Pomorosso" was born, Barbera d'Asti DOCG produced only in some vintages, which immediately placed itself at the top of the company's production, establishing itself as a pioneer label of the new path taken from Barbera. Since then the history of the "Pomorosso" has been full of successes and awards. A wine with a finesse and a unique elegance, whose grapes macerate in contact with the skins carrying out malolactic fermentation, then aged for 14 months in barriques. A bottle that, once uncorked, tells the magnificent and intriguing history of Barbera: not to be missed!
Grape / Blend
Barbera d’Asti d.o.c.g, Italy
In the glass it shows a bright ruby red color. The nose aromas recall fruity sensations of currants, blackberries and cherries, which alternate with light floral and spicy sensations. On the palate it is rich, full-bodied, balanced, with a very interesting fresh note. Closes with a persistent finish.
94-96 points - Ian Blackburn
Barbera at any level has amazing value - but here we see a higher price and I still promise amazing value. This wine is saturated, concentrated, elevated and is such a small producer of merit - I love to tell the COPPO story. I have lead many trips to the PIEDMONT and love to turn people on to high end BARBERA, it is a pleasure rich wine with great complexity, food pairing-ability, and has no seasonality. You should have bottles like this on hand to elevate the night... at $50 your drinking one of the best of its kind and that is saying something.
