Chardonnay Tour & Tasting at Coppo Winery
Here is what you will live
Piedmont is usually associated with Nebbiolo and Barbera, less often with Chardonnay. However, Chardonnay has been present in Piedmont since the first half of the 19th-century, when a few plants from the world-famous Montrachet vineyard in France were brought to Italy under Napoleon. Coppo has always shown passion for this variety: the family used to import Chardonnay from Burgundy to Italy during the 1960s and 1970s. They also were the first to demonstrate that this popular white grape variety could do well in the area thanks to a suitable micro-climate and uniqe soil composition.
In the Chardonnay tour, guests will being guided through the discovery of Piedmont’s hidden gem by tasting 3 Coppo wines. The delicacy of Clelia, a Traditional Method Spumante that is re-fermented in bottle on its own residual sugar, following the “ancestral method” (the only known technique for the production of sparkling wines in the past).
The youthfulness of Costebianche, the youngest Chardonnay produced by Coppo: direct and neat. Finally, the aging potential of Monteriolo, aged on fine lees. Awarded multiple times by the critics, Monteriolo is a wine that contributed greatly to the international recognition of Coppo since the early 80’s.
The guided visit to the Underground Cathedrals ends with a tasting of 4 different wines that best represent Coppo’s Chardonnay production:
- Clelia Coppo Spumante Brut Rosé Metodo Classico
- Costebianche Chardonnay Piemonte DOC
- Monteriolo Piemonte DOC Chardonnay
- Monteriolo Piemonte DOC Chardonnay old vintage
