We like a lot of wines, but there are few that we truly love. Coppo is one of them. Piero Coppo's first harvest at his iconic estate was in 1892. While Piedmont is recognized as one of the greatest wine-producing area in the world, it, like everywhere else, has sub-appellations and districts which stand out above the rest. Canelli, Coppo's home, is one of them.
Most people think of Piedmont as the home of the Nebbiolo grape, which is its most famous. But, few realize that it is also the place where the most sparkling wine in Italy is made, as well as its most famous dessert wine, Moscato.
The current generation, headed by Luigi Coppo, has continued, expanded and even increased the quality of the estate. By enjoying his extraordinary location in Canelli, he has the luxury of crafting world-class wines with few competitors and seems to do it almost effortlessly.
In most circles, Moscato is a light, easy-drinking wine with a little sparkle, a little sweetness and a little alcohol. But when that Moscato has the Coppo name on it, everything changes. Now you have a commanding, authoritative wine with luxurious flavors and nuances that almost seem to startle the senses.
As one of the few estate-grown Moscatos in Canelli, Coppo has a point to prove and proves it masterfully. From peach nectar to green apple to the touch of grapefruit, there is no wonder that Moscato has been prized here for over 700 years.
