Barolo Chinato and Cappellano are two names that are inextricably linked by the history of this prized sweet spiced wine, which was born in the second half of the 19th century from an intuition of Giuseppe Cappellano, a pharmacist from Serralunga d'Alba. Once consumed as a remedy for colds and seasonal ailments, it is today considered a true landmark of the type and a great specialty of the area. The family's descendants continue to produce it with great respect for history and tradition. The fact that this label does not appear in guides and does not receive recognition from critics is due to the Cappellano family's choice not to provide tastings for evaluation, as it is already recognized as an indispensable paradigm.

Cappellano Barolo Chinato comes from Barolo DOCG subjected to maceration of various spices such as China calisaia bark and rhubarb, and gentian root, with the addition of ethyl alcohol. The precise recipe is not revealed of the winery and has remained secret to this day, confirming a family tradition to be protected and perpetuated over the years. After spicing, the wine ages for about 12 months in oak barrels before bottling.

The result of Cappellano Barolo Chinato confirms a level of quality of absolute excellence that has remained unchanged since the nineteenth century until today. The bouquet expresses the complexity of the best expressions of Nebbiolo di Langa, combined with a delicate spicy richness in which nuances of cinchona, rhubarb and herbs can be recognized. The sip is soft, warm, rich and enveloping, with very long persistence. This is an important meditation bottle and the perfect companion to pair with dark chocolate or cocoa-based desserts. It reconciles the senses and gives great emotions.
