    About Cappellano

    An important and historic winery dating back to 1870 and Filippo Cappellano. The real 'DNA' of the winery was established by the larger than life character of Teobaldo Cappellano, a fierce traditionalist (like Bartolo Mascarello). Today son Augusto carries on the traditions, and the Barolos: “Rupestris" and “Piè Franco” retain almost mythical status amongst lover of classical Barolo.

    Cappellano Barbera d'Alba Gabutti 2016 (6x75cl)
    Inc. VAT: £610.07
    2016

    Cappellano Barbera d'Alba Gabutti 2016 (6x75cl)

    Vinous ()

    The 2016 Barbera d'Alba Gabutti is a powerful, brooding wine. Black cherry, incense, tobacco, dried herbs, menthol, graphite and licorice infuse the 2016 with a real sense of brooding, virile power. The 2017 and 2016 Barberas I tasted for this article could not have possibly been more different. If anything, readers might want to cellar the 2016 for a year or two! Many years ago, Baldo Cappellano asked me not to score his wines, so all Cappellano wines show up on our database as NR.

    Cappellano Barbera d'Alba Gabutti 2017 (6x75cl)

    Vinous ()

    The 2017 Barbera d'Alba Gabutti captures all of the natural richness of the vintage in spades. Super-ripe red cherry, kirsch, mint, rose petal, star anise and blood orange are some of the many sensations that develop with some air. Though classically built in terms of structure, the 2017 is decidedly ripe in its expression of fruit. This is a very serious wine. Time in the glass really helps bring things together and tone down some of the most exotic ripeness that is present at the outset.

    Vinous ()

    The 2014 Barolo Barolo Rupestris is a very pretty, fragrant wine. In this vintage, the Rupestris is a bit more ethereal than it usually is, and yet there is a lovely underpinning of structure that gives the wine its shape. Beautifully perfumed and gracious, the 2014 Rupestris opens with enticing scents of sweet tobacco, mint, dried herbs, orange peel, dried cherry, cedar and rose petal. The 2014 should drink well with minimal cellaring, but I expect it will also age gracefully while retaining its somewhat delicate feel.

    Cappellano Barolo Otin Fiorin Pie Rupestris 2015 (6x75cl)

    Vinous ()

    The 2015 Barolo Barolo Rupestris is a classic Rupestris built on texture, volume and resonance. Of course, the 2015 still needs quite a bit of time in bottle to come together, but it is wonderfully deep and fleshy today. Hints of dried flowers, sage, mint and crushed raspberry develop in the glass, but more than anything, the Rupestris is a wine of breadth and resonance. The 2015 marries hedonistic pleasure with classicism in a wine that is truly compelling.

    The 2016 Barolo Barolo Rupestris is very elegant, delicate and refined in this vintage. Sweet red cherry, kirsch, mint, dried rose petal and sage are all beautifully lifted. In 2016, the Rupestris is laid back and very pretty, but also shows less overt depth than it often does. Time in the glass brings out the textural breadth that is such a signature of this Barolo. It will be interesting to see if it gains more volume in bottle. There is no rush, as the 2016 won't see the light of day until 2021.

Sweet red cherry, spice, rose petal, mint and cedar all open in the glass, all framed by wiry tannins that will need time to soften. This is such a gorgeous and alluring Barolo.

    Cappellano Barolo Pie Franco 2004 (2x75cl)

    Vinous ()

    The 2004 Barolo Piè Franco-Michet is very closed at first and needs quite a bit of air. Even so, a slight bit of funk never blows off and remains in the wine, masking the fruit. At this point, it's hard to tell if slight signs of oxidation are creeping in, or, if I suspect, a whiff of old cask has tainted the wine. Either way, the 2004 does not appear to be an especially refined version of this wine. My last two bottles have been disappointing.

    The 2014 Barolo Piè Franco is an anomaly. Poor weather hammered yields in this already challenged parcel within Cappellano's Gabutti vineyard. Yields were down a punishing 50%. Because of practical considerations related to small volume of wine, the 2014 spent less time in oak than normal. Over time, the 2014 has gained a measure of inner sweetness and depth it did not show in barrel, which is a very good thing. Kirsch, orange peel, cedar, mint, wild flowers and spice notes give the 2014 a decidedly exotic feel. Readers should expect an especially gracious, airy Barolo Piè Franco in 2014.

    Vinous ()

    The 2012 Barolo Otin Fiorin Piè Rupestris - Nebioli ­has really gained in weight and stature since I last tasted it. On this night, the 2012 impresses with its substance and stature, qualities that emerge fully with a bit of time in the glass. The 2012 continues to come together during this early part of its life. It is one of the positive surprises of the evening.

    The 2014 Barolo Barolo Rupestris is a very pretty, fragrant wine. In this vintage, the Rupestris is a bit more ethereal than it usually is, and yet there is a lovely underpinning of structure that gives the wine its shape. Beautifully perfumed and gracious, the 2014 Rupestris opens with enticing scents of sweet tobacco, mint, dried herbs, orange peel, dried cherry, cedar and rose petal. The 2014 should drink well with minimal cellaring, but I expect it will also age gracefully while retaining its somewhat delicate feel.

    Vinous ()

    The 2015 Barolo Barolo Rupestris is a classic Rupestris built on texture, volume and resonance. Of course, the 2015 still needs quite a bit of time in bottle to come together, but it is wonderfully deep and fleshy today. Hints of dried flowers, sage, mint and crushed raspberry develop in the glass, but more than anything, the Rupestris is a wine of breadth and resonance. The 2015 marries hedonistic pleasure with classicism in a wine that is truly compelling.

    The 2016 Barolo Barolo Rupestris is very elegant, delicate and refined in this vintage. Sweet red cherry, kirsch, mint, dried rose petal and sage are all beautifully lifted. In 2016, the Rupestris is laid back and very pretty, but also shows less overt depth than it often does. Time in the glass brings out the textural breadth that is such a signature of this Barolo. It will be interesting to see if it gains more volume in bottle. There is no rush, as the 2016 won't see the light of day until 2021.

    Vinous ()

    The 2004 Barolo Piè Franco-Michet is very closed at first and needs quite a bit of air. Even so, a slight bit of funk never blows off and remains in the wine, masking the fruit. At this point, it's hard to tell if slight signs of oxidation are creeping in, or, if I suspect, a whiff of old cask has tainted the wine. Either way, the 2004 does not appear to be an especially refined version of this wine. My last two bottles have been disappointing.

The 2012 are so expressive of their relative styles the Rupestris offers more volume, while the Franco is all about subtle shadings of Nebbiolo fruit and aromatics.

    In 2013, the Barolo Piè Franco is decidedly austere and tannic. Readers should be in no rush to open bottles, not that that should be a problem. Time in the glass brings out the alluring aromatics that are such a signature of the Piè Franco. Although closed down and not fully expressive, the 2013 is a Barolo of haunting beauty. Readers lucky enough to own it can look forward to several decades of exceptional drinking.

    The 2014 Barolo Piè Franco is an anomaly. Poor weather hammered yields in this already challenged parcel within Cappellano's Gabutti vineyard. Yields were down a punishing 50%. Because of practical considerations related to small volume of wine, the 2014 spent less time in oak than normal. Over time, the 2014 has gained a measure of inner sweetness and depth it did not show in barrel, which is a very good thing. Kirsch, orange peel, cedar, mint, wild flowers and spice notes give the 2014 a decidedly exotic feel. Readers should expect an especially gracious, airy Barolo Piè Franco in 2014.

    The 2016 Barolo Piè Franco is surprisingly virile in 2016. If I had tasted the two 2016s blind, I would have likely mixed them up. Dark cherry, menthol, sage, lavender, spice and savory herbs give the 2016 myriad shades of nuance as well as complexity. A wine of real depth and power, the Franco is simply stunning in 2016. It will need a bit of time to be at its best - the 2016 is a long-distance runner. In 2016, there was not enough volume to do submerged cap fermentation. Boy, is it gorgeous.
