Anyone who has interest in discovering the mesmerizing aromatized wine that is Barolo Chinato absolutely must start with the Chinato of the man who wrote its first recipe, Giuseppe Cappellano. Much like Bourdy's Galant des Abbesses, the recipe for this aromatized wine has remained unchanged since the late 19th century, with the secret blend of herbs and spices hand-ground with an ancient mortar-and-pestle by the family firm's current proprietor, Augusto Cappellano. This bottling- based upon the 2015 vintage- is nothing less that a sensory blitz (albeit balanced and stately) that can be enjoyed as a post-feast tonic or paired with desserts as simple as almond biscotti or a handful of perfectly roasted hazelnuts...or as dazzling as vintage chocolate mousses and panforte.
