1964 Cappellano Barolo
John Gilman 94 pointsThe 1964 Cappellano Barolo is a beautiful example of the vintage, and it too shares a real sense of elegance and refinement with the 1967 Cappellano that I have not usually associated with this estate’s more broad-shouldered wines, and perhaps this is just an indication that I have not been aging my Cappellanos long enough? In any event, the 1964 is stunning, jumping from the glass in a beautiful and complex mélange of cherries, blood orange, gamebirds, tobacco ash, herb tones, leather and sous bois. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied, pure and utterly seamless in its resolution today, with a lovely core, beautiful focus and balance, nearly melted tannins and superb length and grip on the tangy and very classy finish. A beautiful, beautiful bottle of fully mature Barolo from a great vintage! (Drink between 2011-2035)
