Vigne Marina Coppi was established in 2003 in the town of Castellania, the birthplace of Marina's father Fausto, one of the greatest cyclists of the 20th century. The family has taken the traditional heritage of the area and applied a modern approach in the winery to produce wines of excellent quality. The estate has concentrated on the native varieties of Timorasso, Favorita, Barbera, Nebbiolo and Croatina and works on a small scale with four hectares of vineyard to ensure the quality of the vines shows through. Parents Marina and Giovanni work closely with son Francesco and his wife Anna, using sustainable methods in the vineyard and employing great expertise in the winery. TASTING: Bright ruby-red in colour. The bouquet has good intensity with hints of cherry and wild strawberries which follow on to the finish. The wine is complex, rounded and supple with a delicious fresh fruit character.
With a chicken casserole with tomatoes calls for a red wine with high-acid and an Italian red is probably the most tomato-friendly wine. Our personal favourite would be this delicious Barbera from from Piedmont.
