Lot #167. Giuseppe Cappellano Barolo Otin Fiorin Piè Franco 2012

Description: Consists of 5 Bottles, 0.75L
Region: Italy, Piedmont, Barolo.
Score: N/A AG.
"The 2012 Barolo Piè Franco opens with striking, explosive aromatics. Rose petal, orange peel, mint, sweet tobacco and spice notes all blossom in the glass, Effortless, silky and gracious to the core, the 2012 Piè Franco is a jewel of a wine. Soft tannins make the 2012 easy to drink young, but there is more than enough depth to support many years of fine drinking. Ultimately, though, the 2012 is a wine that fills all the dimensions. It is at once high-toned and aromatic, and yet has vertical depth to it that is compelling." Vinous, Feb 2017
Provenance: The Hippolyte Cellar
Lot Location: Orange County
Estimate: $1,700
