Region: Asti, Piedmont, Italy

Varietal: 100% Barbera

Tasting notes: This wine is named after the vineyard owner, a lawyer. Strict, stern, and commanding, she has always been known as simply “the lawyer”. This young, vivacious wine is almost comically at odds with its serious namesake. Intense nose of cherry, raspberry and blackberry. Fresh and well balanced with bright acidity.

Producer: Founded in 1892 in Canelli, Piedmont, Coppo winery is one of the oldest family-run Italian wineries and has remained so for over 120 years. The historical Coppo underground cellars, a UNESCO World Heritage, were built in the late 18th century, extending under Canelli hill for a total of five thousand square meters (53,800 sq. ft.) and up to a depth of forty meters (130 ft.). In the early 1980s, Coppo was among the first in the territory to demonstrate the elegance, character, and aging potential of the Barbera grape. Coppo wines are characterized by elegance, finesse and longevity.

Vineyard and Winemaking: The L’Avvocata vineyard sits between 650-820 feet of elevation with a south west-south east exposure. A mix of calcareous clay marl with silt makes up the majority of the soil composition. Fruit selection is carried out in the vineyard.  Vinification and aging takes place in stainless steel to preserve the freshness of this varietal. The result is a light bodied and energetic young wine.
