2018 Coppi Pellirosso Negroamaro

4.5 Stars John Caro
In stock
Juicy and satisfying, this is a great import from the warm 'heel' of Italy. Puglia's distinctive local grape Negroamaro brings us an effortless red that is medium-bodied, with nice darkish fruit and subtle savoury undertones. From a sun-soaked climate, this perfectly balanced wine is versatile and fantastic value. Drink now with grilled red and white meats.

Its Origins

During 40 years of wine making and research into the wines of Puglia, Cantina Coppi is closely linked with promotion and enhancement of this southern Italian region. The family concentrates on native vines with special characteristics, a precious heritage of resources to preserve. According to the family philosophy, making a good wine means following an unbridled passion, and every day brings a rediscovered love for their own land.

What The Critics Say

Wine Enthusiast

"Zesty aromas of crushed thyme, bay leaf and eucalyptus ride over a spiced cranberry and plum core. This is light and easy on the palate, giving juicy red fruit and soft, polished tannins. Integrated acidity is the main driver here, but it plays well with the fruit and spice elements, never seeming out of place."

5 Stars The Wine Writer, Angie Atkinson (2016 vintage)

"Negroamaro grapes from 25 year old vines, planted on clay and slit soils, are carefully vinified for 6 months in stainless tanks to enhance the unique features of this variety. The wine is rested in bottle for 6 months before release. Deep ruby in colour with rich aromas of blackcurrant, cassis, smoky graphite, and dried rose petals. The lively palate is full of juicy berries and plum, soft tannins and a dash of acidity tying everything together. The perfect accompaniment for barbequed meats or a strong flavoured cheese like stilton or cheddar. Great value at its price point."
