Cappellano Nebbiolo Barolo 1955

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Apon opening at around 2 pm - good color and depth with lots of bronze notes, very driect nose of prosciutto, salami, smoke, and rose. The entry is downright opulent for a wine this old and is rich with orange tinged strawberry fruit, very structured still and a bit tight. The finish is quite long with subtle notes of smoke and mint to the earthy core. At around 7 pm the wine showd a touch of corkiness on the nose but when that was not obtrusive there was some minerality and a touch of faded cinnamon spice. This resolved well as the mouthfeel is crisp and layered with well integrated acidity. Lovely fading strawbery fruit and some calcerous notes adding contrast. One of the corked bottles of the night and even so a good showing for a wine coming to the end of its drinking plateau but still a beautiful old lady.

Lovely rosey color with light bronzing. The nose immeadiately offers up lovely savory notes of prosciutto with a touch of smoke and pepper turning tarrier with air and revealing a touch of green olive. Fresh and light in the mouth with lovely resolved structure yet fading fruit. the mid palate still offers up intriguing medicinall tinged cherry fruit with great purity but the finish, though long, shows signs of the wines cracking up. Drink em today.
