Cappellano Barolo Otin Fiorin Pie Rupestris 2012

Winemaker's Notes:

Not rated, but reviewed by Antonio Galloni (Vinous): Cappellano's 2012 Barolo Rupestris is a striking wine. Bright red cherry, mint, white pepper and cranberry give the 2012 much of its lifted, airy personality. Of the two Cappellano Barolos, the Rupestris is usually deep, rich and overt (in relative terms of course), but today, the Rupestris is much more finessed than I remember seeing in the past. Rose petal, dried herbs, red fruits and herbs reappear on the finish. Simply put, the 2012 is a fabulous Barolo Rupestris. Naturally, the tannins need time to soften, but the 2012 is incredibly harmonious today. Drink: 2020-2042. (Nov 2016)
