Lot #589. Cappellano Barolo Otin Fiorin Piè Rupestris Nebioli 2008

Description: Consists of 6 Bottles, 0.75L
Region: Italy, Piedmont, Barolo.
Score: N/A AG.
"One of the wines of the night, the 2008 Barolo Otin Fiorin Piè Rupestris-Nebioli is dazzling. All of the best qualities of this great Barolo vintage come through in the Barolo Rupestris. A wine of precision and crystalline, weightless beauty, the 2008 will leave readers weak at the knees. It is a wine to own, cellar and savor for the next thirty years. The translucency and vibrancy of the fruit is pure 2008. At their best, the Cappellano Barolos represent the very best of the artisan tradition in Piedmont. This recent retrospective back to 1935 was truly unforgettable. Tiny production and insatiable demand makes large-scale tastings of Cappellano Barolos such as this one exceedingly rare. When all was said and done, we tasted a number of extraordinary, deeply moving wines." [Note the Cappellanos asks that their wines not be scored.] Vinous, May 2017
Provenance: The Multitude Cellar
Notes: 6 Very top shoulder, 6 lightly wrinkled capsules.
