Cappellano Barolo Pie Franco 2004

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

from botte – More sudbued on the nose than the Rupestris yet sharing it’s feral quality with a more autumnal quality to the aromatics leaning towards tobacco and earth note before blooming into a full on sottobosco array. Elegant in the mouth but with excellent concentration of fruit, tons of fine grained tannins with sweet fruit just peaking out from the wall of tannin. Bright acidity supports almond skin/amaretto tinged wild berry fruit that finishes with strong minerality and grace notes of tobacco and cocoa. The finish is full and long and strikes a fine baloance between sweet fruit and aggressive and refreshing minerality. Exceptional wine.
