"Barolo is an area where fiercely independent people make extraordinary wines. Yet, even in such company, Teobaldo Cappellano, who passed away on February 21, 2009, stood out for his unique philosophy, his meticulous winemaking and the profound character of his wines.

A legend in Barolo—and among artisanal growers throughout Italy—Cappellano was one of the last of the regions great traditionalist winemakers—and he was one of Barolos most compelling personalities. In 1983 he banished all journalists from his cellar, unless they agreed to review his wines without scores. (He saw ratings as divisive among growers.) And he may have been the only person who, during his lifetime, made a Barolo from ungrafted vines.

With his passing, his son Augusto will continue Teobaldo’s important work, which includes producing the family’s renowned Barolo 'Piè Franco' and Barolo 'Rupestris'."
