Barolo DOCG Gattera

Dominated by the famous cedar of Lebanon, Gattera is a Geographical Mention of Barolo named after the farmstead of the same name that overlooks the area. The story of our winery begins right here, where Angelo Veglio bought his first vineyard in the 1960s.

Variety: 100% Nebbiolo

Age of vineyards: planted in the early 1950s

Vine training system: Guyot

Vinification: maceration on the skins in stainless steel tanks at a controlled temperature for 20-25 days, beginning with cold maceration (10 °C) during the first 48 hours. During this period, an extremely delicate extraction is carried out, only performing a couple of daily pumping over. It is then drained off and undergoes malolactic fermentation in stainless steel tanks. Towards December, the wine is transferred to small barrels of oak, 30% of which are new and 70% used, where they remain to age for 24 months. After decanting in stainless steel, the wine is bottled without fining or filtration.

Color: light ruby red with subtle garnet reflections

Aroma: ethereal, with uniquely sweet, spicy notes that blend perfectly with fruity and flowery aromas

Flavor: warm, slightly balsamic with delicately tannic notes offset with a good balance of alcohol. Well-structured and generous body with sweet, mouthwatering tannins. The excellent exposition of its vineyards and great thermal energy are determining factors in this wine’s character.

Serving temperature: 16°-18°C. It is particularly enjoyable to savor its initial freshness and then appreciate the evolution of its aromas as the wine slowly warms in the glass.

Evolution: ready for drinking immediately, but with the potential to age and improve for over 20 years
