Marina Coppi

Francesco Bellocchio took over vineyard land his grandfather, Fausto Coppi, had owned in the Colli Tortonesi region of Piedmont. Personal drive runs in the family. Grandfather Fausto was one of Italy’s most famous cyclists. Francesco is driven to make the very best wines from local varieties at the winery named after Fausto’s daughter and Francesco’s mother, Marina Coppi.

Plum, blackberry and earth aromas and flavors highlight this rich, juicy red.  Vibrant acidity and a firm underpinning of tannins keep the flavors pumping on the long finish.  Barbera.  Dink now through 2020.
