Barolo Pie Rupestris Cappellano Teobaldo Piedmont 2003

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

The nose here was so pure liquory raspberry fruit. In the mouth this was powerful and rich but still with a refreshing elegance. The tannins are a bit tough but balanced by very ripe fruit and fine acid. One of the best 2003's but one that will require 10-12 years in the cellar to be at it's best.

Teobaldo Cappellano makes this Barolo using ungrafted vines, "Franc de Pied" in French or "Pie Franco" in Italian, resulting in a wine of amazing profundity. He doesn't submitt his wines to a wine guide or buy into any system of valuation, so his Baroli "Pie Franco" are virtually unknown and possessed of unique and impressive character.
