About This Wine

In the late 1800s, Dr. Giuseppe Cappellano, who was a pharmacist, developed Barolo Chinato as a digestive aid. The recipe hasn’t changed since. The base of Cappellano’s Chinato is Barolo from the famed Gabutti vineyard. From here, the family’s ultra-secret recipe of herbs, barks and spices is added. (China is the Italian word for quinine bark, a bittering agent used in Chinato.) Everything is ground by hand in an ancient mortar. Cappellano’s unique blend of spices is guarded so closely that they shop at many different pharmacies to make sure that no one can piece the ingredients together.
