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.

A wine that most perfectly conveys the spirit and essence of its place, Barbaresco is true reflection of terroir. Its star grape, like that in the neighboring Barolo region, is Nebbiolo. Four townships within the Barbaresco zone can produce Barbaresco: the actual village of Barbaresco, as well as Neive, Treiso and San Rocco Seno d'Elvio.

Broadly speaking there are more similarities in the soils of Barbaresco and Barolo than there are differences. Barbaresco’s soils are approximately of the same two major soil types as Barolo: blue-grey marl of the Tortonion epoch, producing more fragile and aromatic characteristics, and Helvetian white yellow marl, which produces wines with more structure and tannins.

Nebbiolo ripens earlier in Barbaresco than in Barolo, primarily due to the vineyards’ proximity to the Tanaro River and lower elevations. While the wines here are still powerful, Barbaresco expresses a more feminine side of Nebbiolo, often with softer tannins, delicate fruit and an elegant perfume. Typical in a well-made Barbaresco are expressions of rose petal, cherry, strawberry, violets, smoke and spice. These wines need a few years before they reach their peak, the best of which need over a decade or longer. Bottle aging adds more savory characteristics, such as earth, iron and dried fruit.

Responsible for some of the most elegant and age-worthy wines in the world, Nebbiolo, named for the ubiquitous autumnal fog (called nebbia in Italian), is the star variety of northern Italy’s Piedmont region. Grown throughout the area, as well as in the neighboring Valle d’Aosta and Valtellina, it reaches its highest potential in the Piedmontese villages of Barolo, Barbaresco and Roero. Outside of Italy, growers are still very much in the experimentation stage but some success has been achieved in parts of California. Somm Secret—If you’re new to Nebbiolo, start with a charming, wallet-friendly, early-drinking Langhe Nebbiolo or Nebbiolo d'Alba.
