Barolo. Cappellano. Do we need to say more?

If you insist... Founded in 1870, Cappellano is led by fifth generation winemaker Augusto Cappellano, after his father – the revered legend Teobaldo – passed away in 2009. The Cappellano family in Serralunga d’Alba have always prioritised innovative traditionalism, wisdom, purity and connectedness to the land over the allure of technology, industrial viticulture and the pressures of the market. Teobaldo was an early adopter of sustainable farming, organic and manual viticulture, viewing his craft an artform – a platform to express personality, history, heritage and imagination.

After the vine disease flavescenza dorata decimated Cappellano’s small holdings in the nearby town of Novello a few vintages back, their three hectares in the cru Gabutti are all that remain. This '16 Rupestris Barolo comprises only the heart of their holding, from vines planted in the late 1940s. It's a powerful wine, firmly structured, and pure. Such tension yet ease, complexity yet harmony. Probably what God drinks in heaven.
