Camp du Rouss is deep red in color with garnet highlights. If offers textbook Barbera aromas of
crushed cherry and wild berry jam, followed by notes of leather and herbs, and a hint of smoke. On
the palate, Camp du Rouss is bright, with luscious, soft tannins. The supple layers of fruit are
backed by Barbera's trademark acidity making it the ideal food wine. Recommended with meat in
rich wine sauces, roastbeef, cured meats and medium aged
"Scents of plums and cherries mix with heady new oak perfume in this cleand and supple barbera. The new oak adds a little dazzle while earthiness places it directly in Piedmont, with black-rooted truffle spice. Meanwhile, the fruit itself is bright and beautiful, carrying a linden-like itch that makes you want to drink more. Delicious with pasta in a meaty boar ragu."
Wine & Spirits
"The 2006 Barbera d'Asti Camp Du Rouss is a more important selection made from lower yields and aged in French oak. It is another gorgeous effort from Coppo. The wine reveals notable elegance in a ripe expression of fruit supported by the minerality that is the hallmark of Barbera from Asti. There is a lovely weight and purity to this wine that make it impossible to resist. Anticipated maturity: 2009-2014.
The Wine Advocate
Liked the brightness of this wine. A bit too much oak for my liking in Barbera, but well balanced and a good value for $20.
