That back label translates from Piedmontese as:
The Dott. G. Cappellano winery (lit.: cellar) --- faithful to its tradition and always managed by the family that founded it --- is one of the few included in the official "list of artisans" of Cuneo Province. This 1974 barolo from Serralunga d'Alba, made as they used to 100 years ago with selected grapes from the Sori' of Vigna Rionda, was aged (lit: carefully attended to) for three years. 3,788 bottles were left, under the label of the "Defense Consortium", and numbered from 17,313 to 21,101. Cask no. 12
