Barolo DOCG

This Barolo is made from the grapes grown in our youngest and most vigorous vineyards in the townships of La Morra and Monforte d’Alba, and vinified as it was in the past for a balanced harmony of its diverse characteristics.

Variety: 100% Nebbiolo

Training system: Guyot

Vinification: maceration on the skins in rotary fermenters at a controlled temperature for about 8 days before the grapes are pressed and alcoholic fermentation is concluded in stainless steel (about 20 days), where malolactic fermentation also takes place at a controlled temperature. Towards December, the wine is transferred to small barrels of oak, 20% of which are new and 80% used, where they remain to age for 24 months. After decanting in stainless steel, the wine is bottled without fining or filtration.

Color: ruby red of medium intensity and garnet red hues

Aroma: intense, harmonic, with ethereal and captivating nuances and a final note of red fruit

Flavor: warm, balanced, with good persistence; already drinking well. Finishes with polished tannins and a delicate vanilla aftertaste

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: drinking well already, but with the potential for great longevity

Bottles produced: about 15,000

Langhe DOC Nebbiolo Angelo

This Nebbiolo is made with delicate grapes that come from our youngest and most vigorous vineyards in the townships of La Morra and Monforte d’Alba. The grapes are vinified together and undergo a brief fermentation to highlight their excellent fruity and fresh notes.

Variety: 100% Nebbiolo

Vine training system: Guyot

Vinification: maceration on the skins in rotary fermenters at a controlled temperature for about 4 days before the grapes are pressed and alcoholic fermentation is concluded in stainless steel (about 20 days), where malolactic fermentation also takes place at a controlled temperature. Towards December, the wine is transferred to small barrels of oak, all used (two or three times), where they remain to age for 6 months. After decanting in stainless steel, the wine is bottled without fining or filtration.

Color: intense ruby red with violet reflections

Aroma: fresh, floral, and fruity, with distinct notes of rose hip, marasca cherry, and delicate scents of raspberry

Flavor: vinous with incredible freshness and light, delicate tannins. Fine, balanced body with good aromatic persistence

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: Made for early consumption, but, faithful to its noble DNA, this wine ages well after several years in the bottle, too.

Bottles produced: about 10,000

L‘Insieme - Langhe Rosso DOC

This wine unites the immediate fruitiness of our Barbera Cascina Nuova with the long-lasting and persistent tannins of Nebbiolo from the Barolo Arborina and Castelletto, plus an international touch of Cabernet Sauvignon, whose grapes come exclusively from our own vineyard property.

Varieties: 40% Nebbiolo, 30% Barbera, 30% Cabernet Sauvignon

Vinification: The diverse varieties used in this blend do not ripen contemporaneously and thus cannot be fermented together. They are blended only after 18 months of aging in barriques for each single variety and right before bottling, without fining or filtration.

Color: intense ruby red with violet nuances

Aroma: elegant, ample, subtly vegetal, with prevalence of ripe, red fruits and hints of sweet vanilla and hazelnut

Flavor: warm, soft, and persistent. Lightly vegetal tannins and a delicate acidity with a rich, captivating finish

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: drinks well upon release, yet also maintains high quality after many years in the cellar

Bottles produced: about 2,000

About us

Company details

We were born and grew up in the hills of Barolo: a territory that has sustained us, whose people have helped us grow up, and whose wine we have fallen in love with, to which we dedicate our lives and our passion.

To understand our history, we must return to the beginning of the 1900s in the village of Ciotto near La Morra. In this cluster of houses, the Veglio family has been dedicated to working the land for generations. To be a farmer in the Langhe meant bending over the vines, cultivating orchards and gardens, raising livestock, and inventing new ways of getting by every day. It was a difficult life. Angelo Veglio, born in 1928, would pass the winters by visiting the farmhouses as a “masacrin,” or a sort of butcher on house call, particularly for the preparation of salami. During the summer, after working in the fields he would travel to the market in Canale, where he sold the few peaches his orchards produced. Angelo had a dream: leave the life of a sharecropper and working in agriculture to dedicate himself to making wine; and purchase vineyards and bottle wine under his name, using native Langhe grapes—above all, nebbiolo, in which he had the foresight to recognize quality and potential.

Cascina Nuova
So it was that in the 1960s, Angelo bought his first vineyard in the locality of Gattera. It was a splendid piece of land in the frazione of Annunziata in the township of La Morra, where today we produce our Barolo Gattera DOCG. In 1979 in Annunziata, the family acquired the farmhouse called Cascina Nuova and some of its property: four shabby walls, a hayloft, and about five hectares of vineyards, among which were the cru of Arborina and Rocche dell’Annunziata. It was the beginning of a new path.

Mauro Veglio
Of Angelo’s three sons, only Mauro followed in the footsteps of his father. In the 1980s, not many people were willing to bet on Barolo, even though it was the most promising challenge in winemaking. In 1986 at 25 years old, Mauro took over the management of the winery after his father came down with an illness.
This was when the winery and farmhouse underwent restoration, the vineyards were renewed, and the first experiments in winemaking were carried out.

A new idea for Barolo
In 1987, Mauro married Daniela, and several years later in 1996, the vineyards of Monforte d’Alba were added to their property in La Morra in the frazione of Castelletto. These were adventurous years, during which the producers of Barolo were beginning to exchange ideas and advice, technology and machines. New concepts were formed together with groups of visionaries in the winemaking field, contributing to innovations in making Barolo wine. No longer were the wines rustic and poorly crafted, but they were clean, ready to drink, with a higher polyphenolic extract and a measured use of small barrels. 1992 marks the year of our first harvest and vinification in the new winery, built next to the foundations of the farmhouse Cascina Nuova.

The challenge of quality
Today, our winery produces 80 thousand bottles from about 14 hectares of vineyards distributed throughout La Morra and Monforte d’Alba. Together with Mauro and Daniela, Mauro’s brother Elio has also returned to the winery. We believe in a balanced wine, respectful of the territory and the characteristics of its land of origins, fruit of an attentive work in the vineyard and just as much care taken in the cellars. We make four important cru (officially known as Menzioni Geografiche Aggiuntive) of Barolo: Arborina, Gattera, Rocche dell’Annunziata, and Castelletto. In addition to Barolo, we vinify other great reds of the Langhe: Langhe Nebbiolo, Barbera, and Dolcetto d’Alba.
