Cappellano Nebbiolo Barolo 1970

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

A bit of tree bark on the nose before this turns moderately sweet, with earthy overtones and some dried rose petals. Nicely spiced with a sweet beefiness, flecked with hints of limestone, celery seed, smoke and oxidized sweet. Rich, still nicely fruity and well-endowed, though the flavors here are very developed and in the brown end of the spectrum with a leathery, dried fruit character. This turns a bit lean on the finish with modest length and tannins that are a bit drying. Nice enough but may have seen some poor storage along the way.
