Coppo is an Italian wine producer located in the city of Canelli in Piedmont. The estate's 18th century underground wine cellars extend deep into the Canelli hillside, and are recognized as a Unesco World Heritage site.
Barbera d’Asti is one of the most famous wines from the Piedmont region of north-western Italy. It became a DOC in 1970 and was upgraded to its DOCG classification in 2008, adding to Piedmont's impressive haul of DOCG titles (the highest level of Italian wine classification).
It is made with Barbera, a dark-skinned wine grape variety found in several Italian wine regions, including its native Piedmont, Emilia-Romagna, Puglia, Campania and even the island regions, Sicily and Sardinia.
Selection of fruits in vineyards are done of the healthiest, ripest grapes which are hand collected in 40 lb picking baskets. Maceration is done with skin contact with short and soft pumping over the skin cap.
Ageing is done for 12 months in french oak barrels (80% of second and third year, 20% new).
