Coppo Canelli

Piemonte, Italy
Piero Coppo founded the Coppo winery in 1892 in the town of Canelli, located in Piedmont, Italy. Canelli is widely recognized as the undisputed capital of Moscato wines—Italy’s famous sweet sparkling wine (also known as Muscat). Although the region grew to fame as a result of Moscato, Asti is also rich in Barbera—a bold, native red grape. Barbera flourishes in the areas of Monferrato and Langa, and because of this unique terroir, the D.O.C Barbera d’Asti is now one of the finest wine classifications in all of Italy. The Coppo family produces 3 distinct Barbera wines today—L’Avvocata, Camp du Rouss, and the award winning Pomorosso.

Coppo winery has received the Tre Bicchieri award numerous times for Pomorosso (1990,1999,2001,2003,2004,2005,2007) and for Monteriolo Chardonnay: 2005,2006.

Captivating and fun to drink, Moncalvina is recommended with light pastries, Panettone (Italian Christmas cake) or simply on its own.
