100% Barbera d'Asti
Medium light bodied and smooth palate with ripe red and black fruit scents.
This wine is named after the vineyard owner, a lawyer. Strict, stern, and commanding, she has always been known as simply “the lawyer”.
The young, vivacious wine is almost comically at odds with its serious namesake.
100% Nebbiolo on chalky and clay soils. 14% abv.
Aging: 30 months in large French oak casks and 6/12 months in the bottle.
Coppo is among the few wineries allowed to vinify Nebbiolo to become Barolo outside of the wine’s strict production zone. Only few thousand bottles produced per year.
93/100 JAMES SUCKLING: “Aromas of plums and dried strawberries with hints of walnuts and roses. Full body, firm and velvety tannins and a flavor finish. Shows texture and tension. Give it a year or two to soften.”
WINE ENTHOUSIAST: “Underbrush, violet, wild berry, menthol and sweet pipe tobacco aromas lead the way on this vibrant wine. The sleek palate doles out juice wild cherries, baking spices and crushed herbs, while fresh acidity and a network of polished tannins provide backup.”

14 months in new French oak barrels
The Nizza Barbera is the new promoted DOCG sub-zone of Barbera d’Asti in 2014 for villages around Nizza Monferrato. The Pomorosso is the symbol of the Coppo winery. It’s a warm, vigorous and structured Barbera, of rare elegance and expressiveness. Typical hints of fruit and spices are combined with nuances of earth and toasted nuances due to aging of 14 months in barrel. The taste is full, intense, persistent, soft and generous.
93/100 JAMES SUCKLING: “Wow. This is electric with lots of fun dark fruit and hints of vanilla. Full-bodied, round and delicious. Wonderful barbera. Drink now.”
Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Malbec and Petit Verdot.
