Winemaker Notes

The Gattera vineyard holds Mauro's oldest vines, which were planted in 1952. Between the 4 Crus of Mauro Veglio, Gattera produces "Classic" Barolo: in the beginning it is evolved and warm with aromas of sun dried peaches and apricots with warm tannins that are decisive, but not aggressive. These dry characteristics come from the south, south-western exposition of the vineyards.

Critical Acclaim

WS 95
Wine Spectator

The textbook aromas of tar and rose are augmented by a bright beam of cherry in this stylish red. The structure shows on the finish, but this will be delicious in time. There’s fine length, with a sweet fruit finish. Best from 2014 through 2030.

RP 94
The Wine Advocate

The 2009 Barolo Gattera is an expressive and contemplative wine that requires a few stern swirls of the glass. It’s slow to open, but once it does, it delivers a steady progression of dark fruit, blue flower, balsam notes, herbs and black licorice. This is a lively wine that glides over the palate effortlessly with silky sheen. It is my favorite wine in this group. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2028.

Mauro Veglio
Our families were farmers for many generations, like many other families in the Langhe. In 1992, Mauro began to drastically reduce the number of grapes per hectare and started to vinify on his own in his new cantina. He utilized shorter macerations with temperature controlled rotary-fermenters and aging in small oak barrels, and he started to produce, little by little, wines that were more elegant with higher quality grapes.

Unlike the tendency of contemporary philosophy production which means the same as manipulating nature, we believe in natural systems of cultivation and vinification: we reject the use of chemical fertilizers or pesticides in our vineyards. Any chemical process is refused in the winemaking as well as any artificial concentration or aromatization: this means that the quality of the wine is the result of the natural character of the vineyards, their soil composition and microclimatic differences determining the maturity of the individual vintages. The result is the authentic essence of our "terroir" in a glass.

Napa Valley

The Napa Valley and Cabernet Sauvignon are so intrinsically linked that it is difficult to discuss one without thinking of the other. Although Cabernet has many important outposts throughout the wine world, nowhere else has it achieved such success (and, at the highest end, commanded such lofty prices) than in Napa. Here, it is responsible for bold, opulent, and dark-fruited wines with grippy tannins and a healthy dose of alcohol. The best examples can age for decades. Each of Napa’s smaller sub-AVAs imparts a different character to Cabernet, such as Rutherford’s famous dust or Stags Leap District's tart cherry flavors.
