Editorial Reviews for Mauro Veglio Barolo
Sour fruit, tar oil, touch of cream/coffee cream, a bit herbal in the mouth, a bit sandy, soft, too soft but with some nice flavor interest, very supple, short finish,
Write your review here, and rate the wine from 1 to 5 glasses above.Dark and deep on the nose with great complexity to the brooding aromatics that feature balsamic and mineral tones to the dark berry fruit. Oak is there but fairly well balanced. Excellent freshness with a menthol topnote 3+ Medium full in the mouth with good acidity just a touch blocky and dull on the backend 2 Flavors are a bit heavy with lots of toasty oak but there seems to be sufficient dark fruit to back it up and even some deep mineral cut on the midpalate to offer a respite from the weight. A bit closed yet dark and brooding 2+ Mentholy and a touch drying and short but with power, for the cellar, this should improve, though it is not my style it is impressive
External Reviews for Mauro Veglio Barolo
The 2008 Barolo is a gorgeous entry-level wine that captures the essence of the year while showing lovely fleshiness and fine overall balance. Red berries, crushed flowers and licorice are woven together nicely in this attractive, harmonious Barolo. The Barolo is delicate, pure and refined from start to finish. In 2008 most of the fruit is from Arborina and Castelletto. Anticipated maturity: 2012–2016.
Good full red. Aromas of dark fruits, loam, tobacco and dried flowers. Juicy, spicy and intense if a bit lean, with fresh primary fruits dominating. Finishes with slightly drying tannins.

The 2004 Barolo Gattera is made in a decidedly riper, more generous style.
