Cappellano Barbera Gabutti


Teobaldo Cappellano was one of Barolo’s last great traditionalist winemakers. A legend among his colleagues and admirers, he was completely unapologetic and unwavering in his determination. The president of the influential Vini Veri (“true wine”) group, he famously banished all journalists from his cellar unless they agreed to review his wines without scores. He produced less than 800 cases of Barolo each year.

This is how the winemaker described the Barbera – “Another great Piemonte vine, another great aspect of the Gabutti vineyards. A classic Barbera, feminine in its generosity and masculine in its posture. It is characterised by a distinctive acidity which sustains softness and fruit, and delivers a vibrating tasting experience until the long finale. The wine gives the impression of partial incompleteness, of continuous change; like all the red wines with strong character it takes its time to unveil its potentiality, character, and pleasures. We have always indulged with its attitude: we bottle and sell it only when the right moment has come, and in the best-suited way. Needless to say, only a natural conduct and the artisanal attitude enable us to produce an authentic Barbera, always recognisable but never identical, familiar yet surprising thanks to the ability to evolve as a narration, where the years take the place of the pages.”
