Mauro Veglio:
Our families were farmers for many generations, like many other families in the Langhe, and in the past all the grapes produced were destined to be sold to negociants and the big co-ops in the area. This method gave us little satisfaction because importance was not given to the quality of the grapes, but rather the quantity and the lowest price possible.

Our families were farmers for many generations, like many other families in the Langhe, and in the past all the grapes produced were destined to be sold to negociants and the big co-ops in the area. This method gave us little satisfaction because importance was not given to the quality of the grapes, but rather the quantity and the lowest price possible. We took over the farm from our families, then in 1992 Mauro decided to change following the example of his friend and neighbor, Elio Altare. He began to drastically reduce the number of grapes per hectare and started to vinify on his own in his new cantina. Utilizing shorter macerations with temperature controlled rotary-fermenters and aging in small oak barrels, he started to produce, little by little, wines that were more elegant and less aggressive thanks to the reduced tannins even if the wines were more concentrated because of the higher quality grapes. The farm consists of approximately 12 hectares in the communes of La Morra and Monforte d’Alba and we produce about 60,000 bottles, half of which is Barolo DOCG. This size allows Mauro to keep a direct control on all production processes, in the vineyards as well as in cellar, maintaining high quality and making necessary investments in new technology and machinery.

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

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. It reveals plenty of fruit, spices and sweet toasted oak on a supple, medium-bodied frame with notable inner sweetness and superb elegance. The Gattera is the most accessible ... Robert Parker.

Veglio's 2004 Barolo Arborina offers a quintessential expression of one of La Morra's best-known vineyards thanks in large part to a restrained use of oak that was missing in previous vintages. Flowers, spices, mint and perfumed red fruit flow from this gorgeous, poised Barolo. It offers lovely purity and inner sweetness supported by the firm tannins that are the hallmark of Arborina. This wine of remarkable beauty and precision is a superb effort from Mauro Veglio. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2022. Wine Advocate , #174 Dec 2007, Antonio Galloni
