Lo, The Barolo
Coppo the mornin' to ya!
We'll put it to you straight. A good wine is a wine that's SO good, you can't think of anything else. A good wine is a wine SO good that you would do ANYTHING to get another taste of it. A good wine is a wine that so distracts you that you can't make think of anything else but finding another glass of that wine.
Just please, don't get so into this Coppo Italian Barolo that you, ahem, forget to do your job.
It's all well and good to to enjoy the layered aromas of violets, black cherries, licorice, tea and tobacco. It's all well and good to say "Please let me have a second glass so I can enjoy that remarkable balance!" But when you're so busy drooling over the tasting notes that you miss an important deadline? Maaaaybe it's time to reconsider just how important your love of wine is.
In short, the next time you celebrate your birthday, drink responsibly. Trust us, if you just enjoy the lovely flavors in moderation, you'll never be embarrassed the day after.
A long history of Barbera production, flawless winemaking and the beauty of the final wines have established a solid reputation for the Coppo family. They now apply the same excellent standards to their production of Nebbiolo.

This garnet wine displays layered aromas of violets, black cherries, licorice, tea and tobacco. On the palate, it shows remarkable balance and continues to unfold into a long, satisfying finish.

Piero Coppo founded the Coppo winery in 1892 in the town of Canelli, located in Piedmont, an area widely recognized as the undisputed capital of Moscato wines, Italy's famous sweet sparkling wine (also known as Muscat). Later, succeeded by his son Luigi, the winery expanded to include other classic still and sparkling wines from Piedmont such as Gavi and Chardonnay. Luigi also provided his winery with the facilities and equipment needed to compete in the difficult, but growing, post-war market.
Today, Piero's four grandsons—Piero, Gianni, Paolo and Roberto— manage the company and have successfully integrated new styles with traditional viticulture. Max Coppo is now the fourth generation to enter the family business. As the Coppo family moves into the 21st century, the same values that built the winery shine through: loyal dedication to the traditions of the Asti region.
While the region grew to fame as a result of Moscato, Asti is also rich in Barbera, a bold, native red grape. Barbera flourishes in the areas of Monferrato and Langa, and because of this unique terroir, the D.O.C.G. Barbera d'Asti is now one of the finest wine classifications in all of Italy. The Coppo's have set an ambitious goal: to create world class wines while staying loyal to the traditional grapes and winemaking philosophy of their Piedmont origins. Considered "Barbera specialists" worldwide, the Coppo family produces 3 distinct Barbera wines today—L'Avvocata, Camp du Rouss, and the award winning Pomorosso. They have received the Tre Bicchieri award numerous times for Pomorosso (1990, 1999, 2001, 2003, 2004, 2005, 2007) and for Monteriolo Chardonnay: (2005, 2006.)
