Community Tasting Notes 11

    January 7, 2020 - The bouquet on the ‘07 Pie Franco was layered and deep, showing a stunning mix of black cherry and plum, with balsamic tones, exotic spice, licorice, pipe tobacco and wild dark blue and red florals, all brought to vivid life through a hint of volatility. On the palate, a rush of silky textures carrying ripe red fruits flooded the senses, leaving sweet minerals and spices, as stimulating acids worked their magic to create a mouthwatering, energetic yet purely saitiating expression of pretty, lift fruits against framing Nebbiolo tannin. The finish was long, as a cascade of minerals, light tannin and spicy red fruits slowly faded, leaving a feminen, sweet floral expression. This bottle had been opened almost twelve hours prior to tasting it, and was in a perfect place. I’m aware that scoring Cappellano is a bit taboo, but the ‘07 Pie Franco earned my lofty praise. (97 points)

    January 6, 2020 - Wow this was an absolutely perfect bottle and unfortunately, there is quite some bottle variation with the Cappellano wines. But when they are on... they are on...
    Dark, deep and balsamic, with notes of menthol, dark cherries, dark red fruit, plum, pine, cedar wood, cigar box, tar, candied violets and some licorice. It‘s medium-full bodied, with excellent depth, has medium+ acidity and medium-high tannin that is present but super silky. Excellent length.
    A very complete, complex and silky Barolo of the highest level. This is absolutely singing tonight and probably the WOTN.

    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.
