Lot #190. Giuseppe Cappellano Barolo Otin Fiorin Piè Rupestris-Nebioli 2011

Description: Consists of 1 Magnum, 1.5L
Packaging: OWC.
Region: Italy, Piedmont, Barolo.
Score: N/A AG.
"The 2011 Barolo Otin Fiorin Piè Rupestris-Nebioli is a gorgeous wine. Sweet, perfumed and inviting, the 2011 is going to need time to shed some baby fat. The elevated ripeness and alcohol of the year are both quite evident, and yet there is a certain raw magnetism to the 2011 that is quite appealing. I expect the 2011 will open up earlier than many recent vintages, but I would still give it time at the very least to recover from its recent bottling. As always, Cappellano prefers that scores for his wines not be published." Vinous, Dec 2015
Provenance: The Coquillage Cellar
Notes: Very lightly scuffed label.
Lot Location: Orange County
Estimate: $160
