Producer

In the early 1980s, the Coppo brothers were among the first in the territory to demonstrate the elegance, character, and aging potential of the Barbera grape. Barbera remains their specialty today, in particular the Nizza DOCG Pomorosso label. The historical Coppo underground cellars, a UNESCO World Heritage, were built in the late 18th century, extending under Canelli hill for a total of five thousand square meters (53,800 sq. ft.) and up to a depth of forty meters (130 ft.). 

Notes

Literally campo del rosso, or “the redhead’s field” (in Piedmontese, “camp” means vineyard and “du rouss” means red hair), this wine takes its name from the vineyard’s very first owner: a red-headed man who was so burly he frightened the children.

Ageing: 12 months in french oak barrels (80% of second and third year, 20% new)

Color: dark ruby red

Nose: intense spice and ripe red fruits scents

Taste: fine, well structured and long-lasting

Pairings: pasta with beans, risotto with porcini mushrooms, chicken chasseur
