Cappellano Barolo 'Pie Repestris' 2001

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

At first this is all about leather and ass on the nose, possible eass in leather on a hot day. Air brings out some minty notes and earthy beetroot and radish aromas along with a flash of minerality. Rich and chewy in the mouth with with lots of black cherry and black raspberry fruit. There really is lovely fruit here, a bit herbal, herb stemmy, and tree barky, but also long and layered through the mineral and slightly bitter finish. So it stinks a bit? Give this time.

Suggested Recipe Pairing presented by
Coconut Rice Sweet Potato Cheesecake

RiceSelect's creamy Arborio gets blended with sweet potato, coconut milk and vanilla to create this decadent cheesecake. Pairs well with Saunternes; a white dessert wine that has hints of coconut from aging in oak barrels.
