    Barolo 2004
    Pie Rupestris, Otin Fiorin, Cappellano
    Bottle (9)


    ”The 2004 Barolo Otin Fiorin Piè Rupestris-Nebioli is nearly as compelling as the 2008. Layered and totally sensual from the outset, the 2004 is a terrific example of the year. Perfumed aromatics meld into sweet red cherry, tobacco, licorice and spice. Firm tannins give the Rupestris a bit more austerity than is common in this vintage, but that also ensures the wine will drink well for years to come. So many 2004s are accessible, but the Rupestris is a Barolo I would choose to cellar for at least a few years. I have had some variability with Cappellano’s 2004s. This is an especially fine bottle.” (Antonio Galloni, Vinous, May 2017)
