Coppo Camp du Rouss Barbera d'Asti 2004
Serve with rice dishes or risotto, red sauce pasta dishes, white meats and grilled red meats, cold cuts and medium strength cheeses, excellent throughout a meal or as a daily table wine.
"Wonderful aromas of ripe, crushed wild berries. Silky tannins, with a long, luscious aftertaste." 90 Points
"Fruit-driven with a subtle touch of spice from the new oak, silky tannin, and decent acidity." 89 Points
"Good deep red. Bright aromas of bitter cherry and dried berries. Chewy and deep but primary and backward, with a penetrating quality to its slightly medicinal bitter cherry and licorice flavors. Tactile but not at all a sweet style. Finishes sappy, serious and long." 90 Points

Just after the loss of their father Luigi in 1984, the brothers decided to focus on Barbera, releasing their own interpretation of this local grape. The prestigious Pomorosso was born, emerging as the model of the "Modern Style" Barbera, aged in oak and with unmistakable personality. Barbera, a truly native varietal, soon became the pride of the entire region.
The four brothers Piero, Gianni, Paolo and Roberto have set an ambitious goal: to resurrect the traditional red varietals from the Asti region, and to produce serious white wines with aging potential. This is a new generation of winegrowers with a new way of viewing agriculture. Although they are considered to be "Barbera specialists", they also produce an outstanding Moscato d'Asti and an excellent Gavi.
