Pomorosso
Wine Description
A lush 100% Barbera d'Asti grown in selected vineyards near Canelli, in Piedmont at an elevation of 657 feet above sea level. The grapes for Pomorosso are harvested in September/October and the must is macerated with the skins for 12 days, delivering excellent concentration and density. Coppo's flagship Barbera is aged in 100% new barriques for 15 months.

Tasting Notes
Deep ruby red in color with garnet hues, Pomorosso offers a complex and fragrant bouquet of ripe cherries and blackberry, deliciously integrated with subtle notes of cherry liqueur, chocolate, vanilla and espresso. This Barbera is very intense and toasty in character with a solid yet velvety structure.


Suggested Food Pairings
An extremely elegant and sumptuous Barbera that pairs well with pasta in rich meat sauce, polenta with sausages and mushrooms, and red meat dishes such as roasted game, fillet mignon and roast beef.
