About the winery:
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. Today, the winery produces 100,000 bottles from about 23 hectares 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.

Notes from the Winemaker:
In this wine we combine the grapes of 4 crus from 3 different municipalities, which fully express the representative balance of the Barolo area.

Grape variety: 100% Nebbiolo

Type of training: guyot

Vinification: maceration with the skins in temperature-controlled steel tanks for 10-15 days, then racking and alcoholic fermentation in stainless steel (about 20 days) is completed where, maintaining the controlled temperature, malolactic fermentation also takes place. Subsequently, around December, the wine is placed in small oak barrels, 15-20% new and 80% second and third passage, where it remains to age for a total of 24 months. After being decanted in stainless steel, the wine can be bottled without filtration or clarification.

Tasting Notes:

Color: ruby red of medium intensity with garnet veins.

Bouquet: intense, harmonious, with ethereal, delicate and immediately captivating notes. Light finish of red fruits.

Taste: warm, balanced, with good persistence and ready to drink. Delicate vanilla aftertaste and finish with smooth tannins.

Serving temperature: 16°-18°. It is pleasant to appreciate the initial freshness and experience the evolution of the aromas as the wine warms up in the glass.

Evolution: a wine that is particularly ready to be drunk from the moment it is marketed, but with potential longevity.

Ratings & Reviews

92 Points - James Suckling:
"Crisp and fruity developing notes of crushed strawberries, red currants, stones, peppercorns and dried flowers on the nose. Medium body with firm tannins and sharp acidity at this stage. Racy and vivid with plenty of energy at the crunchy and slightly tart finish. Drink after 2027." (Feb 2024)

91 Points - Vinous Media:
"The 2020 Barolo is redolent of sweet pipe tobacco, cedar, mint, dried cherry and incense. The blend of sites (50% La Morra and 50% Serralunga/Monforte) works so well here. Medium in body and gracious, with lovely understated presence, the straight Barolo is a fine introduction to this range." Drink 2024-2032. - Antonio Galloni (Jan 2024)

90 Points - Jeb Dunnuck:
"Medium red/ruby in color, the 2020 Barolo has a polished and pure nose with aromas of ripe raspberries, fresh leather, anise, and rose petals. Approachable and medium-bodied, it’s fresh and elegant, with clean acidity, fine tannins, and a tapered finish. It’s appealing now and will do well over the next 4-6 years." (May 2024)
