Mauro Veglio

About Mauro Veglio

Situated in the hamlet of Cascina Nouva, near the sinuous road that winds down from La Morra, Azienda Agricola Veglio was founded in the 1960supon Angelo Veglio’s purchase of his first vines in Gattera. Over the following decades, the Veglio estate has slowly and organically grown stronger and more influential throughout the region, with holdings acquired via marriage, relocation and alliances...

 

1979 saw the family move to their present home in Cascina Nouva, which was accompanied by five hectares of vines, including holdings in the crus Arborina and Rocche dell’Annunziata. At the young age of 25, Mauro Veglio was handed the reins of the estate in 1986. A year later, the young Veglio married his wife Daniela, herself a member of a proud vinous Piedmonte family. This union brought some exceptional holdings in Castelletto under the Veglio umbrella.

 

In 2017, a family alliance with Mauro’s nephew Alessandro – already running his own winery – brought a further five hectares in Gattera (the ancestral Veglio home) and Paiagallo. As we know it today, Alessandro manages a 19-hectare estate, with parcels of vines spanning the length and breadth of this beautiful region. Stylistically, one need only look across the road from Veglio’s winery to that of the legendary modernist Elio Altare, a name with which a great many collectors will be familiar, who Mauro has cited as a strong influence in his early days.

 

Viniculture

Alessandro, however, is now the Veglio in charge, and there have already been notable alterations to the wine in his very first vintage. Not wishing, by any means, to totally disregard the incredible work of his uncle, there is merely a greater flexibility and youthful energy underpinning that sensational Veglio sprezzatura. Lighter on extraction, the wines are aged in larger oak barrels for a fresher fruit profile of brightness and purity– this immediate and important change of approach is especially welcome given the stunning single-cru cuvées crafted by Alessandro, which are able to convey their terroir and sense of place with greater transparency.

Mauro Veglio Barolo 2017 (6x75cl)

Vinous (90)

The 2017 Barolo is a delicious entry-level offering. All the elements just fall into place effortlessly. Sweet red cherry, cedar, dried flowers and spice give this lilting, open-knit Barolo lovely aromatic and flavor complexity.

Mauro Veglio Barolo Arborina 2010 (6x75cl)

Wine Advocate (92)

The 2010 Barolo Arborina shows a more evident oak presence especially at this young stage in the wine’s evolutionary course. Sweet flower, dried cherry, moist tobacco, Spanish cedar and exotic spice come into full view with a few swirls of the glass. Its overall fabric is thick and chewy with layers of dark fruit and toasted nut woven deep within. Drink: 2017-2030.

Mauro Veglio Barolo Arborina 2017 (6x75cl)

Vinous (91)

The 2017 Barolo Arborina is pretty, but also quite delicate and ethereal. Crushed flowers, spice, mint, tobacco and orange peel are nicely lifted throughout. This is an especially light, aromatic style, and while Barolo can be deceptive, my preference would be to drink this on the early side.

Mauro Veglio Barolo Castelletto 2017 (6x75cl)

Vinous (94)

The 2017 Barolo Castelletto is fabulous. It is also the wine in this range that feels the least marked by heat. Red/purplish fruit, blood orange, mint, spice and lavender all grace this beautifully translucent, expressive Barolo. There is some tannin that needs to soften - this is Monforte after all - but all the elements are impeccably balanced.

Mauro Veglio Barolo Gattera 2017 (6x75cl)

Vinous (91)

The 2017 Barolo Gattera has a bit more weight and density than most of the other wines in this range, but it, too, is a bit fleeting in feel. Dark cherry, mocha, spice, leather and menthol bring out slightly darker tonalities of Nebbiolo fruit.

Mauro Veglio Barolo Paiagallo 2017 (6x75cl)

Vinous (92)

The 2017 Barolo Paiagallo is the most open and racy of Veglio's 2017. Ripe red cherry, kirsch, dried flowers, orange peel and cinnamon all develop as the 2017 opens in the glass. This is an especially ripe, forward Barolo, but it also has a bit better balance in its tannins.
