12 Bottles of Mauro Veglio Barolo 2017 750ML
Nebbiolo from Barolo, Piedmont, Italy
Notes from the Winemaker
This 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.
Ruby red of medium intensity and garnet red hues. Intense, harmonic, with ethereal and captivating nuances and a final note of red fruit. Warm, balanced, with good persistence; already drinking well. Finishes with polished tannins and a delicate vanilla aftertaste.
Reviews and Accolades
94 Points/James Suckling
This is really delicious now with strawberry, chocolate, hazelnut and walnut undertones. Some floral notes, too. Medium to full body with round tannins and a delicious finish. Drinkable now, but another year or two in bottle will make it even better. And it can age. Try from 2023.
92 Points/Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate
This wine represents a blend of fruit from Arborina and Gattera in La Morra and Castelletto in Monforte d'Alba. The Mauro Veglio 2017 Barolo opens to a light garnet-ruby color with a glossy shine and a classic aromatic profile of wild berry, tar, licorice and crushed blue flowers. The 2017 vintage is a bit thinner in the mid-palate, but this expression demonstrates good tannic management.
92 Points/Wine Enthusiast
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. Give the tannins a couple of years to unwind, then drink sooner rather than later to enjoy the fruit richness.
