  • Cappellano Rupestris Barolo 2001


    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,... Read More

  • Cappellano Rupestris Barolo 2008


    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 ... Read More

  • There is not much new information one can write about Theobaldo Cappellano, a sometimes divisive winemaker with whom I was once fortunate to spend the better part of the afternoon discussing winemaking, viticulture, land use, morality and invention. To say that my visit was unusual is perhaps an understatement, though I’m guessing it was only un... Read More

  • Otin Fiorin Pie Franco 1996


    Tight, liquory and smoky on the nose that fills with dried cherry fruit. This is very finely aromatic with huge tea aromas and perhaps even a hint of nutty oak, along with minty spices and freshly ground coffee adding complexity. Tight and coiled in the mouth and in need of a decade to unwind. Superbly ripe tannins support a tense palate full of... Read More

  • Cappellano Barolo Piè Franco Otin Fiorin 1995


    Very finely focused on the nose with earth, strongly medicinal with some hickory oak-like aromas. This is a little minty and quite aromatic with hints of tree bark and a bit of forest floor, adding detail to red fruits that are sweet and waxy. With rich sweet fruit right up front, this is almost explosive on entry with fine tender tannins and br... Read More

  • Otin Fiorin Pie Rupestris 1995


    Sweet black cherry fruit on the nose is framed with lovely medicinal accents. Theres nice depth to the aromatics here as this shows a lovely perfumed nose with sweet and nutty top notes built on a base note of macerated flowers, green herb notes and salumi oak. Silky on entry with a juicy feel and early hints of plum and big black cherry skin ov... Read More

  • Cappellano Nebbiolo Barolo 1990


    Liquory and quite mineral on the nose with rich, dense aromas of ripe cherry and plummy fruit. This actually smells tannic and tarry. Powerful on the palate, liquory and medicinal, this is incredibly concentrated with dense, aggressively medicinal fruit. This is majestic but not fruity per se, never will be elegant but powerfully complex and tan... Read More
