Description: Consists of 3 Bottles, 0.75L
Region: Italy, Piedmont, Barolo.
Score: N/A WA.
"The 2006 Barolo Rupestris opens with a beautiful ruby hue and delicately ethereal tones of licorice, dark fruit, chopped mint and dried ginger. The Rupestris line famously comes from a small vineyard that was grafted to foreign rootstock some 60 years ago. The wine holds its own with elegant and silky sensations backed by a long, menthol finish. This is a pensive, melodic and profoundly beautiful wine that lasts long on the palate. The polished finish resonates like the last chord of music in a long symphony . . . . In keeping with his father’s wishes, Augusto Cappellano does not send samples to wine guides and he asks all of those who tastes his wines to refrain from assigning numerical points." Wine Advocate Interim, July 2013
Provenance: The Coquillage Cellar
Lot Location: Orange County
