Editorial Reviews for Cappellano Rupestris Barolo

Tight on the nose which is a bit leathery and gamy, with hints of a little campfire, some nuanced stone, mint and medical notes, and then a really pronounced rose stem aroma. This is incredibly fruity early on the palate, before displaying tense tannins and gaining earth, dried herb, and dried rose petal notes that flood the palate, The tannins are nervy and the acids pronounced if buffered nicely by the density of fruit. Today there's a certain softness, laid back style here, and this lacks the vivacity of the top vintages, but the long finish full of cherry and licorice notes, and the very fresh, clean style is promising, though this closed quickly in the glass so beware its closed phase. A classic Barolo in a clean, enlightened style.


User Reviews for Cappellano Rupestris Barolo

Winemaker's Notes:

This is the principal Barolo of the estate, at least in terms of quantity produced. The vineyard is the Gabutti cru and the exposure is south to southwest. After an extended fermentation and considerable aging in the classic “botte” of the region, the wine is bottled without filtration. The rhythm of the release is usually four to four and one-half years after the harvest. Stylistically, the wine is an honest and pure reflection of the terroir of this small but important cru: earthy, truffled aromas marry to a full-bodied, occasionally rustic character backed by rugged, classic tannins. The Barolos of Serralunga are known for their generosity and warmth and the “Rupestris” is as fine an examp
