Coppo Moscato Moncalvina 2010

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Sweet honey dipped peach, pear and orange aromas fill the glass topped with hints of Earl Grey tea. Sweet in the mouth but anchored by fine acidity, this delivers a lovely array of bright and vivid orchard and citrus fruit flavors all topped with a hint of dried herb in a seductively creamy package. Soft yet persistently effervescent with a creamy citrus finish. A bit opulent perhaps but excellent. 90pts

The Coppo family history intertwines with the development of the City of Canelli, which in the early 1900s had already established itself as the Capital of Italy’s famous sweet sparkling wine Moscato (Muscat). The region was also rich in Barbera, but the family followed the trail of sweet bubbles for a little over a century and consolidated. Thus it is under the auspices of Moscato that at the turn of the century, founder Piero Coppo begins producing sweet sparkling wines that become a distinctive mark of ‘made in Italy’ long before Anglo-Saxon custom coined the phrase. The evolution of sweet sparkling wines into drier wines or brut pinot noir based offerings was obvious, as was the need to measure up the Barbera to the big reds from Monferrato and Langa.The company flourishes and becomes solid as the elegant family mansion in the heart of the city testifies, with its long series of cellars tunneled out of the hillside that reveal the different geological layers of various epochs. Piero is succeeded by his son Luigi, who enlarges the family business equipping it with the instruments and facilities needed to compete in a difficult but growing post-war market. Luigi then passes on to his four sons: Piero (named after the founder), Gianni, Paolo and Roberto a philosophy of life and production, a spirit that can be felt in the vineyards they’ve inherited and from which today’s wines are brought to life.

Brilliant yellow color with some green highlights. The nose is refreshing and delicate with scents of peach, pear and the characteristic fragrance of Moscato. An elegant, slightly sweet, sparkling wine. Excellent on its own or with panettone (a typical Italian Christmas cake) and other light pastries.
