    Winemaker's 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:

    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.

    Wine Spectator

    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.

    Good deep medium red. Black cherry, licorice and menthol on the distinctly darker nose. Then suave and seamless on the palate, with solid minerality giving a penetrating quality to the wine's dark fruit flavors. Supple, full and complete. Tannins build slowly, eventually coating the entire mouth.
