Tasting Notes: The Mauro Veglio 2019 Barolo opens to a medium-dark appearance and concentration. The wine's more saturated approach is transferred to the bouquet with red and purple fruits, tangy cedarwood, potting soil and pressed rose. This is a classic expression of Nebbiolo that represents a blend of fruit from three villages: Arborina and Gattera in La Morra, Castelletto in Monforte d'Alba and Serralunga d'Alba.

Producer: The Veglio family has been dedicated to working the land for generations. Since the beginning of the 1900s in the village of Ciotto near La Morra, they have been cultivating vines, orchards & gardens, and raising livestock.  Born in 1928, Angelo Veglio developed a dream to leave the life of a sharecropper to dedicate himself to making wine. He purchased his first vineyard in the 1960s in Gattera and started making wine under his own name using native Langhe grapes—above all, Nebbiolo. After his son Mauro took over the management of the winery in 1986, the winery & vineyards were restored, and the first experiments in winemaking were carried out, working together with groups of visionaries to bring innovations in making Barolo. No longer were the wines rustic and poorly crafted, but they were clean, ready to drink, with a higher polyphenolic extract and a measured use of small oak barrels. 

Vineyard & Winemaking: Today, the winery produces 80,000 bottles from about 23 hectares (16 ha owned) of vineyards distributed throughout La Morra and Monforte d’Alba. The family believes in making balanced wines, respecting the land and its characteristics of origin, with attentive work in the vineyard and just as much care taken in the cellars. The Mauro Veglio Barolo is made from the grapes grown in their youngest and most vigorous vineyards in the townships of La Morra and Monforte d’Alba, and vinified as it was in the past for a balanced harmony of its diverse characteristics. Towards December, the wine is transferred to small barrels of oak, 15-20% of which are new and 80% used, where they remain to age for 24 months. After decanting in stainless steel, the wine is bottled without fining or filtration.
