Rarely do you encounter anyone as single minded and committed to his ‘one true path’ as Felice Coppo. And the intensity of his wine vividly reflects the intensity of the man. Made from old vine Barbera of Monferrato, which until recently remained one of Piedmont’s great undiscovered vinous jewels. But potential has to be turned into reality and this is what Felice is now achieving after a personal vinous sojourn that has seen him experiment with oak and various fermentation techniques over the years. You can taste this man’s intensity in his wine. Made from ultra-low yielding vines with absolutely no oak contact, Felice’s search for the ultimate expression of the Barbera grape has delivered amazingly hedonistic experiences in this 1999 vintage. The wine has amazing depth and dimension, with everything from redcurrant and violet aromatic high-notes to a crescendo of spicy-gamey base-note, built around an opulent black fruit centre that reveals more and more layers as it opens in the glass. Personnally the alcohol level (14%) is a touch overpowering, with this kept in check the wine would be outstanding. However the price would reflect that, so at £9 this is a great value, entry price level Barbera to knock your socks off.
