Coppo, Camp du Rouss Barbera D’Asti DOCG 2011, Piemonte, Italy
Tasting Note: Barbara from Asti is where this Italian grape variety shines best, including this bottle.
Deep-intensity purple-to-ruby in color this wine has a pronounced, aromatic nose of black currant, black plum and black cherry with some notes of vanilla baking spice.
On the palate the dry, full-bodied barbera expresses black fruit flavors suggested on the nose in a ripe fruit style.
The wine has ripe, medium-plus tannin and acidity that completes with a long finish.
It also has flavor concentration and complexity of flavor.
