August: a month full of important oenological awards for Coppi Winery!

Of great value is the “91 points” from WineEnthusiast to “Senatore” Primitivo DOC Gioia del Colle Vintage 2017. It is in fact the highest score awarded among about 40 Primitivo wines tasted before the October release of the prestigious American magazine’s Buying Guide. Coppi is also the only Apulian winery, among the many reviewed, to have received two over-90 points: indeed, “Don Antonio” Primitivo 2017 obtained 90 points. Noteworthy is also the second best evaluation among all Negroamaro wines tasted in this session, awarded to our “Pellirosso” 2018.

Vanitoso” Primitivo Riserva DOC Gioia del Colle

Another prestigious award: Gold Medal at WineHunter Awards 2020 to “Vanitoso” Primitivo Riserva DOC Gioia del Colle, Vintage 2001. This is a recognition of excellence that guarantees Vanitoso’s presence at the Merano Wine Festival, the international exhibition event where only wines and wineries that have achieved a quality certified by consistently high scores over time are represented. Coppi’s excellence is confirmed by the Red Awards 2020 assigned to “Senatore” 2017, “Don Antonio” 2017, and “Corè” Rosé 2019.

BollicineCherì”. This Extra Dry rosé

Also in August, 94 points awarded by Luca Maroni to “BollicineCherì”. This Extra Dry rosé, made from Negroamaro grapes, is a regular visitor to the podium in the sparkling wine section of the “Yearbook of the Best Italian Wines”, edited by the famous Roman journalist and taster. 93 points for “Cantonovo” Organic Primitivo and “Serralto” Malvasia Bianca are also of absolute importance.

The satisfaction for these awards is further fuelled by the transversality of the excellent scores, from reds to rosés, through whites, still and sparkling wines, and even organic ones.

Pending further assessments, the attention is now focused on the last stages of grapes ripening in the family vineyards. In a few days, the hand-harvesting tradition will be replicated, a fundamental moment that carries on that quality path that sees the Coppi family committed to valorising Apulian indigenous vines and in particular the hills of the “Murgia dei Trulli” and its caves, within the territory of the now prestigious “DOC Gioia del Colle”.
