The Copertino Cooperative of Puglia was established in 1935 when a group of visionary growers from the Salento peninsula decided to produce higher-quality wine from indigenous grapes. By maintaining lower yields and with meticulous attention to detail in the cellar, the resulting wines emphasized the terroir of the region, and the DOC Copertino was ultimately established in 1976. Today the cooperative has hundreds of proud members with 300 hectares planted mostly to traditional varieties: Negroamaro, Malvasia Nera, and Primitivo.*
The 2012 Copertino Riserva is predominantly Negroamaro with a small percentage of Malvasia Nera fermented and aged in stainless steel. This Riserva wine is made only in the best vintages and released at the winemaker's discretion after several years of bottle aging. Ruby red with garnet hints, it has aromas of herb-tinged red and black fruits and a medium-to-full-bodied palate of brambly raspberries, black cherries, and blackberries entwined with accents of savory herbs, tobacco leaf, and black pepper that lend depth and complexity. Well-structured, it has firm yet pliant tannins and is infused with moderate acidity that uplifts the fruit characters, giving the wine a youthful kick.
