    April 22, 2019 - PnP. Brick color. Developed nose with underwood, tar and roses. Drying palate, lacking fruit. Noble tannins. Rather short finish. Getting tired with air. This bottle puzzled me. Been stored correct since release. Disappointing.

    November 17, 2018 - My WOTY versus stacked competition of Bartolo, Cappellano, Sandrone, Giacosa and Conterno. As soon as it touched my lips, I said "I need a magnum of this"... and sadly have no bottles. More heft than Mascarello. Still light on its feet. Dark ripe cherry, fine dark tannin, a polished precise finish in the mouth. Aromatically took a few hours to start opening in the glass. So good.

    August 21, 2018 - As good as 11 yr old Barolo gets. 95 b/c probably could have used a few more years of cellaring.

    January 24, 2018 - AWE Barolo Tasting (Extra Space): Appearance is clear, pale intensity, ruby colour with slight garnet rim. Legs.
    Nose is clean, medium intensity, with aromas of iron earth, dark red cherries, chalky minerality. Shy, tight and closing up.
    On the palate, dry, high acidity, medium+ alcohol (14.5%), very structured gum-drying high tannins, full body. Medium+ flavour intensity, with flavours of dark earth, iron ore minerality, black licorice, dark red cherries, black cherries, sour red cherries, chalky minerality. Long finish.
    Very very good quality. Lots of depth here, more than the Pie Rupestris definitely. And the tannin structure shouts to you that this is Sparta! (oops I mean Serralunga!) Let this guy sleep for now. Will be good to try again after 5 years.
    4 years aging in Slavonian oak.
    From ungrafted vines planted on their own roots in the middle of the Gabutti vineyard after that part of the vineyard collapsed due to an earthquake. These vines are all from the Michet clone of Nebbiolo, which is superior to the Lampia clone, but has lower yield.
    Wine critics are discouraged from rating Cappellano's wines. But, I am not a critic. Anyway, my score is probably conservative.
