Augusto Cappellano has a friend in Roero who owns vines and had joked for years, "These grapes would taste so much better made in your cellar"--so, beginning in 2021, they finally made it happen. Augusto produces roughly 4,000 bottles per vintage from his friend's vineyard, from Barbera planted in the zone's characteristic white, sandy soils. Vinified and aged in a combination of cement and steel, it offers bright, clean acidity and soft tannins which are significantly more polite than those found in Augusto's home turf of Serralunga. It nonetheless possesses a density, sappiness, and overall sense of equilibrium that is very Cappellano.
