Italy – the home of MoscatoChiantiAmarone and Prosecco – has a rich and diverse wine heritage dating back more than two thousand years. Famous for its bewildering diversity of both grape varieties and wine styles, Italy is also significant for the sheer volume of wine it produces: just over 4 billion liters (around 1.06 billion US gallons) in 2012, from 800,000 hectares (197,700 acres) of vineyards. It is rivaled in this regard only by France and Spain. (© Wine-Searcher)

Managing and marketing such a vast wine portfolio is no easy task, particularly in today's highly competitive wine market. The Italian government's system of wine classification and labeling uses a four-tier quality hierarchy made up of more than 500 DOCG, DOC and IGT titles.

Coppo, Barbera d'Asti, L'avvocata

100% Barbera d'Asti


Medium light bodied and smooth palate with ripe red and black fruit scents.

This wine is named after the vineyard owner, a lawyer. Strict, stern, and commanding, she has always been known as simply “the lawyer”.

The young, vivacious wine is almost comically at odds with its serious namesake.

100% Barbera d'Asti – 30hl/ha

14 months in new French oak barrels


The Nizza Barbera is the new promoted DOCG sub-zone of Barbera d’Asti in 2014 for villages around Nizza Monferrato. The Pomorosso is the symbol of the Coppo winery. It’s a warm, vigorous and structured Barbera, of rare elegance and expressiveness. Typical hints of fruit and spices are combined with nuances of earth and toasted nuances due to aging of 14 months in barrel. The taste is full, intense, persistent, soft and generous. 

93/100 JAMES SUCKLING: “Wow. This is electric with lots of fun dark fruit and hints of vanilla. Full-bodied, round and delicious. Wonderful barbera. Drink now.”

100% Nebbiolo on chalky and clay soils. 14% abv. 

Aging: 30 months in large French oak casks and 6/12 months in the bottle.

Coppo is among the few wineries allowed to vinify Nebbiolo to become Barolo outside of the wine’s strict production zone. Only few thousand bottles produced per year. 

93/100 JAMES SUCKLING: “Aromas of plums and dried strawberries with hints of walnuts and roses. Full body, firm and velvety tannins and a flavor finish. Shows texture and tension. Give it a year or two to soften.”

WINE ENTHOUSIAST: “Underbrush, violet, wild berry, menthol and sweet pipe tobacco aromas lead the way on this vibrant wine. The sleek palate doles out juice wild cherries, baking spices and crushed herbs, while fresh acidity and a network of polished tannins provide backup.”
