Ruby red colored with garnet reflections, fresh scents of small red fruits, raspberry, redcurrant and wild roses that evolve into licorice and spice notes. Very complex and extremely delicate at same time, it shows all the elegance of La Morra terroir. When the wine first enters the market it is fresh and a little austere, but still harmonious and balanced. With time the wine softens a little, but maintains the initial character for many years, particularly if stored in an ambient place that is
fresh and humid without temperature variations.
"Good full red. Attractive aromas of raspberry, coffee and smoky oak. Sweet but vinous and firm, with good energy to the flavors of red cherry, minerals and rose petal. Finishes juicy and long, with firm tannins and lovely aromatic lift. Very suave Barolo, and an excellent example of the vintage."

"Fresh and pretty on the nose, with strawberry and raspberry aromas. Full-bodied, with very silky tannins and fresh, clean fruit. Reserved and precise. Best after 2010. 500 cases made."
"Veglio’s 2005 Barolo Arborina is intensely fragrant in its red berries, flowers and spices. This medium-bodied, feminine Barolo reveals outstanding length, with high tone aromatics that reappear on the finish. Like all of the Veglio Barolos in 2005, this is a relatively smaller-scaled style. Anticipated maturity: 2009-2020. "
