This wine owes its name to a red apple tree that grows on top of the hill where the vineyards are cultivated. This is without a doubt the most prestigious Barbera from Coppo, and contributed substantially to the rebirth of this variety. Pomorosso, produced only during years of exceptional vintage, comes from three vineyards located in Agliano Terme. The soil is marine sediment and rich in minerals, which gives the wine finesse, minerality, and longevity.
