Winemaker Notes

Deep ruby red with garnet highlights. Ample fruit (red and wilde black cherries), white pepper and pipe tobacco, hints of bitter chocolate and fresh mint on the finish. Luscious, full bodied and well balanced confirming this complexity on the nose.

Critical Acclaim

RP 96
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2010 Barbaresco Coparossa is extremely elegant and refined with dried flowers, herbal notes, bright cola and Pinot-like softness. This is a stunning effort. The wine is irresistibly silky and sensuous on the palate, imparting clean fruit flavors that last long on the finish. It delivers fabulous length with seemingly never-ending intensity and persistency. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2028.
JS 92
James Suckling
Beautifully aromatic, with strawberry, flower and light nut character on the nose and palate. Full body with round tannins and a fresh finish. Lovely delicate texture to this.
W&S 92
Wine & Spirits
A blend of nebbiolo grown in the blue marl of Neive and sandy, stony soils of Treiso, this ages in barriques, presenting oak tones as well as earthy facets in its tannins. Those mineral-inflected, obsidian-black tannins surround pure fruit, with depth and precise detail to its flavors. Generously rich, in the mode of the vintage, this has a tight structure that will sustain it in the cellar.
WS 90
Wine Spectator
Offers cherry, licorice, leather and spice flavors matched to a fleshy profile. Fresh, with a firm stitching of tannins on the finish. Best from 2015 through 2025.

Barbaresco

View all wine

Often compared to Barolo but worthy of its own separate conversation, Barbaresco is home to the softer side of Nebbiolo. For a long time, consumers viewed Barbaresco as a more affordable alternative to the wines of neighboring Barolo, but advances in viticulture and resulting improvements in quality have allowed this region to build a superior reputation all its own. With a warmer, drier, and milder climate and compact, fertile soils, the wines here are powerful yet soft, fruit-forward, and elegantly perfumed. Barbaresco needs some time to mature before being ready to drink, but less so than Barolo, and the typical bottle is best enjoyed between five and 15 years from the harvest.

Barbaresco wines are highly aromatic and complexly flavored, with notes of rose petal, cherry, strawberry, violets, and spice. Bottle aging can add more savory characteristics of iron and tar, as well as dried orange peel. Four villages within the Barbaresco DOCG zone can produce Barbaresco: the actual village of Barbaresco, as well as Neive, Treiso and San Rocco Seno d'Elvio.

Nebbiolo

View all wine

Responsible for some of the most elegant and age-worthy wines in the world, Nebbiolo is the star variety of northern Italy’s Piedmont region. Grown throughout the area as well as in neighboring Valle d’Aosta and Valtellina, it is at its best in the Piedmontese villages of Barolo and Barbaresco. Nebbiolo is a finicky grape, and needs a very particular soil type in order to thrive. Outside of Italy, it often fails to show the captivating aromas for which it is so beloved, but some success has been achieved in parts of California.

In the Glass

Nebbiolo is an elegant variety with mouthwatering acidity and a compelling perfume of rose petals, violets, fresh tar, licorice, clay, and dried cherries. Light in color and body, Nebbiolo is a more powerful wine than one might expect, and its firm tannins typically need time to mellow. With age, it develops a velvety texture and a stunningly complex bouquet.

Perfect Pairings

Nebbiolo’s love affair with food starts in Piedmont, which is home to the Slow Food movement and some of Italy’s best produce. The region is famous for its white truffles and wild boar ragu, both of which make for excellent pairings with Nebbiolo.

Sommelier Secret

If you can’t afford to drink Barolo and Barbaresco every night, try the more wallet-friendly, earlier-drinking Langhe Nebbiolo or Nebbiolo d'Alba. Also search out the fine offerings of the nearby Roero region. North of the Langhe and Roero, find earthy and rustic versions of the variety (known here as “Spanna”) in Ghemme and Gattinara.
