Mauro Veglio Barolo 2008

External Review by Premier Wine & Spirits:

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.

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.

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.
