Cappellano Barolo Gabutti Otin Fiorin Piè Franco - Michet 1997

Otin Fiorin refers to the specific parcel in the Gabutti Vineyard owned by Cappellano.

Piè Franco refers to the vines within this parcel which were planted with European root stock in 1989. A good colloquial translation of Piè Franco would be free standing, that is the root is not altered (i.e. not grafted).

Michet refers to the particular clone of Nebbiolo used in these 1989 plantings.
