Mauro Veglio ‘Castelletto’ Barolo Nebbiolo 2007

Castelletto is a vast area that winds between Monforte d’Alba and the frazione of Perno along the confines of Serralunga d’Alba.

Here, Mauro Veglio the Winemaker cultivates about four hectares of vineyards that lay in a southeast position.

Beginning with the 1996 vintage, they were the first producers to use this name on the label, and the first with its official recognition.

This wine offers vigorous flavours, full-bodied, balanced. Great persistence in the tannins, but they are never too dry. Overall a juicy wine. Final notes of blackberry and blueberry jam.

The aroma is intense and smooth, with incredible harmony of red fruits and delicate rose petals. Very elegant, with subtle hints of underbrush, mint, and licorice.

Vinification includes 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.

It is then drained off and undergoes malolactic fermentation in stainless steel tanks. 

The wine is then 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.
