Mauro Veglio Barolo Vigna Gattera 2007

External Review by We Speak Wine:

This Barolo exhibits an enticing perfume of rose and cherry, with a wet forest accent. Juicy and harmonious, with everything in the right proportion, ending with an aftertaste of sweet fruit and mineral. A 2007 expression of Nebbiolo. Best from 2014 through 2035. 500 cases made. -BS Good deep medium red. Black cherry, licorice and menthol on the distinctly darker nose. Then suave and seamless on the palate, with solid minerality giving a penetrating quality to the wines dark fruit flavors. Supple, full and complete. Tannins build slowly, eventually coating the entire mouth. The 2007 Barolo Gattera comes across as quite rich and dark, with layers of dark fruit, spices and menthol that swirl around in the glass. The Gattera shows gorgeous juiciness and thrust from the old vines in this site, along with sensual, balsamic tones that add further complexity. Broad, incisive tannins frame the authoritative finish. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2022. &nb...

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.
