Mauro Veglio - Barolo - Italy
Overview: The Mauro Veglio Barolo is made from the grapes grown in our 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.
With maceration on the skins in stainless steel tanks at a controlled temperature for 10-15 days, before the grapes are pressed and alcoholic fermentation is concluded in stainless steel (about 20 days), where malolactic fermentation also takes place at a controlled temperature. 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. About 25,000 bottles produced,
also available in magnum format
Tasting Notes: Subtle aromas of French oak, ripe dark-skinned fruit and cedar form the nose. Linear and firmly structured, the palate offers dried cherry, tangy orange zest and ground clove alongside close-grained, mouth-drying tannins that grip the close.
Pairing: Oso buco, cottage pie, veal chops.
