Description

From the vineyards of the Barolo, Cappellano presents Pie Franco—a Barolo of extraordinary depth and character that speaks to the rich heritage of this esteemed estate. Crafted with unwavering dedication to tradition and terroir, Pie Franco stands as a testament to Cappellano’s commitment to producing wines of exceptional quality.

Cappellano, a venerable name in the world of Barolo, has long been revered for its cultivation of Nebbiolo, the grape that defines this region. Pie Franco, meaning ‘purebred’ or ‘wild foot,’ is a reference to the rare old vines that produce this exceptional wine, known for their original rootstock, untamed by grafting.

The Nebbiolo grapes for Pie Franco are meticulously tended in the estate’s historic vineyards, offering a direct connection to the past and the unique microclimate of Serralunga d’Alba.

In the cellar, Cappellano’s winemaking philosophy is deeply rooted in tradition, emphasizing minimal intervention. The wine is aged in large, old Slavonian oak barrels, allowing it to evolve gracefully while preserving the natural purity of the fruit.

The bouquet comprises dark cherries, roses, truffles, and hints of tobacco, inviting you to embark on a sensory journey. On the palate, it unfurls with power and finesse, offering an abundance of flavours—ripe black fruit, leather, and spices—all framed by structured tannins. The finish is profound and enduring, leaving an indelible mark of Barolo’s grandeur.
