    Winemaker's Notes:

    Ruby red colored with slight orange reflection, between the 4 Crus of Mauro Veglio, Gattera is the one, which tastes nearer to "Classic" Barolo: in the beginning it is evolved and warm with aromas of peaches and apricots that have been dried in the sun on the balcony and a little closed with warm tannins that are decisive, but not aggressive. These dry characteristics come from the south, south-western exposition: the afternoon sun warms the earth and the grapes, and the position similar to an amphitheatre protects them from the winds of the north. When the wine first enters the market it is judged to be richer and more evolved than the other 4 Crus, and with time one always appreciates the particularly warm and elegant spices.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Very ripe fruit on the nose, with floral and dried berry character. Full-bodied, with chewy tannins and impressive concentration that turns to cedar, berry and blackberry. Best after 2011. 500 cases made.

    Warm, generous dark fruit, spices and flowers come through in the 2005 Barolo Gattera. This beautifully balanced wine reveals an outstanding sense of proportion and an elegant, refined finish. This is the hottest of the microclimates in the Veglio stable, and has the vines with the most age, both of which were clearly a help in 2005. Anticipated maturity: 2009-2017.

    Good deep red. More subdued and medicinal on the nose than the Arborina; lower-pitched too. Then big, rich and fairly full in the mouth but less forthcoming today and not showing the clarity of flavor of the Arborina. The medicinal quality carries through on the aftertaste, which shows more serious tannins and very good breadth.
