Barolo is an area where fiercely independent people make extraordinary wines. Yet, even in such company, Teobaldo Cappellano, who passed away on February 21, 2009, stood out for his unique philosophy, his meticulous winemaking and the profound character of his wines.

A legend in Barolo‚ÄĒand among artisanal growers throughout Italy‚ÄĒCappellano was one of the last of the region‚Äôs great traditionalist winemakers‚ÄĒand he was one of Barolo‚Äôs most compelling personalities. In 1983 he banished all journalists from his cellar, unless they agreed to review his wines without scores. (He saw ratings as divisive among growers.) And he may have been the only person who, during his lifetime, made a Barolo from ungrafted vines.
