The Cappellano name has been associated with winemaking in Barolo since the 1870s, however the real history of the estate, as far as modern-day Barolo is concerned, began in the 1970s with the late Teobaldo Cappellano.
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. Date Tasted: Feb 2020; Rating: NR; Antonio Galloni
