Coppo Gavi la Rocca 2012

Winemaker's Notes:

Made from 100% Cortese fermented in stainless steel tanks. Malolactic fermentation is partially carried out and the wine remains in tank for 3 months prior to bottling. La Rocca is pale yellow in color with subtle reflections. The perfume is fresh and delicate with a hint of citrus. On the palate the wine is crisp, light and dry with balanced acidity and a delicate, almond-like finish.

The Coppo family history intertwines with the development of the City of Canelli, which in the early 1900s had already established itself as the Capital of Italy’s famous sweet sparkling wine Moscato (Muscat).

The Coppo family history intertwines with the development of the City of Canelli, which in the early 1900s had already established itself as the Capital of Italy’s famous sweet sparkling wine Moscato (Muscat). The region was also rich in Barbera, but the family followed the trail of sweet bubbles for a little over a century and consolidated. Thus it is under the auspices of Moscato that at the turn of the century, founder Piero Coppo begins producing sweet sparkling wines that become a distinctive mark of ‘made in Italy’ long before Anglo-Saxon custom coined the phrase. The evolution of sweet sparkling wines into drier wines or brut pinot noir based offerings was obvious, as was the need to measure up the Barbera to the big reds from Monferrato and Langa.The company flourishes and becomes solid as the elegant family mansion in the heart of the city testifies, with its long series of cellars tunneled out of the hillside that reveal the different geological layers of various epochs. Piero is succeeded by his son Luigi, who enlarges the family business equipping it with the instruments and facilities needed to compete in a difficult but growing post-war market. Luigi then passes on to his four sons: Piero (named after the founder), Gianni, Paolo and Roberto a philosophy of life and production, a spirit that can be felt in the vineyards they’ve inherited and from which today’s wines are brought to life.

A bit stinky on the nose with lots of floral character and hints of steely minerality, honeycomb, and somewhat exotic persimmon and guava tinged fruit. Some trapped CO2 lends this a prickle on the tongue, followed by rather delicate but pure mineral and white floral flavors laid over a base of delicate peach tinged citrus pith flavors. This has great energy to it, and the minerality, and a subtle suggestion of herb, build on the palate and lead to a refreshing, moderately long but very clean and high toned finish. A bit feminine and very engaging. 90pts
