Cuvée presentation

This cuvée is an audacious bet that was considered wild at the time of its creation, when Teobaldo Cappellano launched the project in the 1980s. This wine grower wanted to grow a few rows of ungrafted Nebbiolo to discover the original, pure expression of Barolo. This decision was also an homage to his grandfather Giovanni who spent his last years in Africa, trying to understand whether the American grafting system was the only solution. In spite of the pushback and of all the odds, these vines have never been blighted by phylloxera. Today, the domain continues this work with organic vine growing, the Nebbiolo grapes benefiting from ideal, south-facing slopes. In the winery, vinification involves little intervention. Indigenous yeasts kick off a fermentation that lasts for two to three weeks. Maturation is long, refined further by extra ageing time in the cellar once the wine is bottled. It is garnet red in colour with an intense bouquet marked by notes of cherry, flowers and aromatic herbs. The palate is structured by tannins and lifted by a fine acidity.
