Wine.Woot purchases now bypass your cart entirely! This means you gotta buy Wine.Woot items on their own, using your Amazon Payments account. You can't mix 'em up with stuff from our other sites. This cowboy's ridin' solo.
Be aware that anything in your cart from the other Woot sites is still out there and looking forward to your return. We'd hate for anything to sell out while you're reading this.
Finally! Something that we can pair with our meals of polenta with sausages and mushrooms.
The difficulty of finding a perfect pairing isn't well documented enough. When you have a strict diet of polenta with sausages and mushrooms, for example, it isn't easy to find a wine to go with your meals. But finally, FINALLY, that wine has arrived.
This 2008 Pomorosso Barbera d' Asti is described as pairing well with "pasta in rich meat sauce, polenta with sausages and mushrooms, and red meat dishes such as roasted game, filet mignon and roast beef." See! There it is! Right in their list of pairings: Polenta with sausages and mushrooms!
There's just something about the fragrances of ripe cherries and blackberries and notes of cherry liqueur, chocolate, vanilla, and espresso that brings out the most of every meal of polenta with sausages and mushrooms. We can't quite put our finger on it, but it works wonders, and we haven't had a single meal of polenta with sausages and mushrooms that's been the same since.
A lush 100% Barbera d’Asti grown in selected vineyards near Canelli, in Piedmont at an elevation of 657 feet above sea level. The grapes for Pomorosso are harvested in September/October, and the must is macerated with the skins for 12 days, delivering excellent concentration and density. Coppo’s flagship Barbera is aged in 100% new barriques for 14 months.
Deep ruby red in color with garnet hues, Pomorosso offers a complex and fragrant bouquet of ripe cherries and blackberry, deliciously integrated with subtle notes of cherry liqueur, chocolate, vanilla and espresso. This Barbera is very intense and toasty in character with a solid yet velvety structure.
Suggested Food Pairings: An extremely elegant and sumptuous Barbera that pairs well with pasta in rich meat sauce, polenta with sausages and mushrooms, and red meat dishes such as roasted game, filet mignon and roast beef.

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.)
