Serralunga

Share

We love Serralunga, which, despite the focus of this text, obviously includes many other fine wines in addition to Cappellano; Massolino is very fine. Or 1989 and 1996 Giacosa Falletto Riserva, for example!

Three years ago we tasted the 1935 Cappellano Super Barolo. It lived up to its name. But I'm still not sure what "Super" designates; it's not a term I've seen on any other Barolo. 1947 is considered one of the great Barolo vintages; the wine should be super.

Cappellano 1970, bottled for Troglia                           

 

 

Troglia was a wine merchant in Torino; some older friends in the region  remember them as having very high standards (the fact that our friends bought Troglia / Cappellano wines offers proof of this). I would assume that the Cappellano family felt the same way, since they sold finished wine to Troglia (which was bottled by Cappellano in Serralunga), and permitted Troglia to put the Cappellano name on the label, which in those days was not standard practice when producers sold their wine to merchants. Are Troglia bottles as good as the wines bottled with the Cappellano label? My own experience tasting them is limited but has mostly been very positive, with memorably good Troglia wines from the 1950s and 1960s. And you get the very distinctive bottle! Jamie Wolff

Cappellano 1970 Barolo

Truffle and tar and a surprising rush of raspberry jam on the nose. Very high toned in the mouth — this needs food — but over time the wine is taking on weight and complexity. JW

Ceretto 1974 Barolo Grignore

"Name utilized up through the 2001 vintage by the Ceretto winery for a single-vineyard Barolo produced from the grapes of the Gabutti MGA. It refers to a parcel situated in the highest part of the cru, bordering on Parafada. The grapes are currently used in the blend of the regular Barolo of the house." (from "Barolo MGA" by Alessandro Masnaghetti)
