From the Importer: 

"Teobaldo Cappellano was a visionary and a legendary figure in the history of Barolo; even if the estate was founded in 1870 (but producing Barolo as far back as 1861) Teobaldo was the one finding and buying the beautiful 2 hectares of vineyard in the prestigious Gabutti cru from a farmer called Oitin Fiorin. Then, in 1989, He experimented with ungrafted Nebbiolo chosen by massal selection from Gabutti, to replant a small, sandier area of the vineyard after a landslip.After Teobaldo passed away unexpectedly in 2009, Augusto took over and despite the pressure on him, He went in his very own way in both vineyard and cellar with undeniable success. Gabutti is a magical old vineyard in Serralunga d’Alba on ‘ marna blu’ soils (blue marly limestone). Barolo Oitin Fiorin Pie’ Rupestris comes from the older vines, now over 80 years old, the Pie’ Franco comes from the ungrafted vines planted in 1989: a very fascinating comparison. Cappellano releases his Pie’ Rupestris & Pie’ Franco one year after most of other Barolos; when Teobaldo used to prefer the extra year to be in barrel, Augusto opted for bottle ageing instead, aiming for more fragrancy and precision."
