Cappellano Barolo 1974

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Mushroom and pencil lead on the nose with a fair amount of insect spray; this smells wrong. Soft tannins and bright acids give this a good juicy feel, and the chunky plummy fruit is smooth, and attractive but at the same time simple and short, finishing with bright acidity but a bit chunky and clumsy. Not what I expected.

beautiful youthful color, this is young looking. Very minty and packed with medicinal licorice and a significant oxidized edge, even a bit of wool but still some fruit and caraway. Very high toned in the mouth with coarse tannins and fading fruit recalling unripe strawberry. The finish is astringent and offers echoes of amarena cherry fruit but the structure here really is very aggressive. If you like licorice though you could smell this all night long, very pure and intense nose which bumps this up a bit in my book but still not a success.
