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.

  • Coppo Barbera d'Asti Camp du Rouss 2009

    Snoothrank:

    Dark, earthy and funky on the nose this shows Barbera as the fruit begins to fade leaving behind complex spice, earth, and dried red and black fruit aromas along with some obvious VA. Smooth, supple and polished in the mouth, while the fruity aromas have faded significantly here the plummy, slightly dried cherry flavors remain on the palate alon... Read More

    Snoothrank:

    A bit stinky on the nose with lots of floral character and hints of steely minerality, honeycomb, and somewhat exotic persimmon and guava tinged fruit. Some trapped CO2 lends this a prickle on the tongue, followed by rather delicate but pure mineral and white floral flavors laid over a base of delicate peach tinged citrus pith flavors. This has ...

  • Coppo Brachetto d'Acqui 2007

    Snoothrank:

    A favorite of ours for a decade - happy to see them still in production. A very smooth sparkling wine that pairs wonderfully with Pork Roast. Hints of fresh strawberry and raspberries, with a smooth, "creamy" feel on the palate. Excellent sparkling wine - a steal actually. Read More

  • Coppo Moscato Moncalvina 2010

    Snoothrank:

    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 crea... Read More
