Good Barbera from Vigne Marina Coppi


An interesting bottle of 2012 Vigne Marina Coppi, Marine, Colli Tortonesi has remained on my mind since tasted one year ago.  I finally tried the Barbera from the same producer.  The 2010 Vigne Marina Coppi, Castellania, Colli Tortonesi is from a very good vintage and despite several years of bottle age, it is only beginning to open up. While I recommend you cellar this for at least another year you may drink it on the second day.  It is still controlled but the flavors are deep and the addition of floral herbs with a hint of fat is enticing.  It is a fine wine at a good price and is still available at MacArthur Beverages.

2010 Vigne Marina Coppi, Castellania, Colli Tortonesi – $23
Imported by The Sorting Table.  This wine is 95% Barbera and 5% Freisa which was fermented and aged in stainless steel tanks.  Alcohol 14.5%.  The polish berry nose is followed by similar flavors in the mouth.  This wine of tart red and blue fruit has controlled weight and cedar towards the finish.  There is good flavor, floral herbs, a hint of fat, and plenty of balanced structure for development.  ***(*) 2018- 2025.
