Cappellano, Bartolo Mascarello, Giuseppe Rinaldi

Need we say more?

Well, just one thing: the back label of the Cappellano 1974 Barolo is in Piemontese dialect, so I had a Piemontese friend confirm the text: "The winery of Doctor G. Cappellano is faithful to its tradition and has always been managed by the family that founded it -- it is one of the few included in the official "list of artisans" of Cuneo Province. This 1974 Barolo from Serralunga d'Alba is made as they used to do 100 years ago, with selected grapes from the Sori' of Vigna Rionda, and was carefully aged for 3 years. 3,788 bottles were produced under the seal of guarantee, and were numbered from 17313 to 21,201".

Even though single-vineyard wines were beginning to be more frequent in the 1970s, this is the only instance I know of in the period when Cappellano designated the source of the grapes for their Barolo. Jamie Wolff

Rinaldi, Giuseppe 2011 Barolo Tre Tine

Formerly labeled Cannubi San Lorenzo - Ravera, this is close to same blend / same wine. Early on (from barrel in 2014) the Tre Tine seemed closer in style to Brunate than usual, sharing a dark core of ripe fruit, and very ripe tannin. A year later there was more obvious difference, with the elegance of Cannubi beginning to shine. Out of about 120 Barolos, this is one of the very best 2011s we've tasted. 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

Cappellano started using this label around 1980; the former owner says they would have purchased this bottle before 1985.

Rinaldi, Giuseppe 2011 Barolo Brunate

Tasted twice (once from barrel in 2014, and from bottle in March 2015), this shows the warmth of the vintage in terms of a solid dark core, ripe tannin and tons of black cherry fruit (reminiscent of Cascina Francia), but without losing the balance that Rinaldi always seems to achieve. Jamie Wolff
