Cappellano & Marcarini

Share

It would be very interesting to taste older Cappellano and Marcarini together. They have aged beautifully, and both are among the very best expressions of their respective terroirs: Cappellano showing the more structured and austere character of Serralunga, and Marcarini the warmer and more lush nature of La Morra. To be frank, I’m underplaying how special these wines are, but while I was putting this together, I received a wine offer claiming that the 2018 vintage in Beaujolais was “legendary”. Maybe it will be - my partner David reports that the wines are quite rich, but have balancing acidities – he thinks it's a fine vintage. But things in wine shilling are out of control when a vintage that’s not yet released – and that the vendor hasn’t tasted – is being sold as legendary. Please! Show me a wine made by Teobaldo Cappellano, or by Elvio Cogno (winemaker at Marcarini in the 1960s and ‘70s) and I’ll show you legendary. Jamie Wolff
