Barolo Cappellano Rupestris 2004

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

from botte - What a huge nose, redolent of frutti di bosco with violets hint and a feral, earthy, animal driven character. Bright with acids in the mouth, packed with dense fruit and grippy, angular tannins. While very fruit driven the midpalate is full of crisp, black mineral tones. Excellent concentration and balance. Finishes with grippy tannins and power to spare, very pure and clean. Exceptional wine.

The Barolo Pie Rupestris – Nebioli, is from vines planted on American rootstock (Rupestris). It is not certain which particular strain of Nebbiolo was planted then and so the reference Nebioli refers to its unidentified clone. Deep in color and greater extraction than the Pie Franco, this wine is produced from an extraordinary plot of 60-year-old vines in the Gabutti vineyard.
