Cappellano Barolo 1954 -2006

Share

Our favorite old Barolo? Well, right up there, at any rate.

A note: Troglia was a wine merchant in Torino; some older friends in the region still remember them as having very high standards (the fact that they bought Troglia / Cappellano wines offers proof of this). I would assume that the Cappellano family felt the same way, since they sold finished wine to Troglia (in bulk, which Troglia then bottled) and permitted Troglia to put their name on the label, which in those days was not standard practice when producers sold their wine to merchants. Are Troglia bottles as good as Cappellano’s estate-bottled wines? My own experience tasting them is limited but has been very positive, with memorably good Troglia wines from the 1950s and 1960s. And you get the very distinctive bottle!

 

 

About "Super Barolo": two years ago we tasted the 1935 Cappellano Super Barolo. It lived up to its name. But I'm not sure what "Super" designates; it's not a term I've seen on any other Barolo. 1947 is considered one of the great Barolo vintages; the wine should be super. Jamie Wolff

Three styles of Cappellano Chinato labels from different eras; the two tan labels in the image are (according to the former owner) from the 1950's; second-from-left from the 1940s; the blue label from "Before 1980." Along with many other wonders, you can see more images of Cappellano Chinato labels on our friend Ken Vastola's web site: http://www.finewinegeek.com/chinato/cappellano.html

Cappellano 1970 Barolo

Truffle and tar and a surprising rush of raspberry jam on the nose. Very high toned in the mouth — this needs food — but over time the wine is taking on weight and complexity. JW
