    Winemaker Notes

    Ruby red wine with garnet hints. Intense, full, rich and ethereal aromas of blackberry, plum, Mediterranean vegetation, ripe fruit and leather. Warm, rich and generous, with complex tones and flavors of almond and blackcurrant.

    Perfect with pizza, burgers, red sauce and meat pastas and ideal with barbecue.

    Critical Acclaim

    All Vintages
    Cantina Sociale Cooperativa del Copertino, Italy
    When colonizing Greeks first roamed Italy they named it Oenotria - land of the vine. It was Puglia, located in Italy's southernmost reaches that was the inspiration for this colorful declaration. Today, Puglia is home to 25 production zones, most significantly the DOC Copertino. The Copertino Cooperative was established in 1935 when a group of visionary growers, from a tiny town in the heart of the Salento peninsula's wine growing region, decided to produce a higher quality wine from their traditional indigenous grapes. Presently 1,000 growers farm as few as 1,000 acres of vineyard to provide the grapes for Copertino Riserva. Severino Garofano, long regarded as the most authoritative and respected enologist in the Salento, carries on and advances a proud tradition. Once viewed almost solely as a resource for blending grapes, the Salento and Copertino now put an accent on premium quality. It is Garofano who is often credited for being the catalyst for the DOC Copertino's rapidly improving wines. He makes his wines from a blend of 95% Negro Amaro and 5% Malvasia Nera. They combine to create a powerful, inky wine that is silky textured with remarkable depth, complexity and character.

    Italian Red Wine

    While picturesque hillsides, endless coastlines and a favorable climate serve to unify the grape-growing culture of this country. The apparent never-ending world of indigenous grape varieties gives Italy an unexampled charm and allure for its red wines. From the steep inclines of the Alps to the sprawling, warm, coastal plains of the south, red grape varieties thrive throughout.

    The kings of Italy, wines like Barolo and Barbaresco (made of Nebbiolo), and Chianti and Brunello di Montalcino (made of Sangiovese), as well as Amarone (mostly Corvina), play center stage for the most lauded, collected and cellar-worthy reds. Less popular but entirely deserving of as much praise are the wines made from Aglianico, Sagrantino and Nerello Mascalese.

    For those accustomed to drinking New World reds, the south is the place to start. Grapes like Negroamaro or Primitvo from Puglia and Nero d’Avola from Sicily make soft, ammicable, full-bodied, fruit-dominant wines. Curious palates should be on the lookout for Cannonau (Grenache), Lagrein, Teroldego, Ruché, Freisa, Cesanese, Schiopettino, Rossese and Gaglioppo to name a few.
