Description

Details of wine

Dominated by the famous Lebanese cedar, the Gattera is a Geographical Mention of Barolo that takes its name from the homonymous farmhouse that dominates the area. Located on the border between the municipalities of La Morra and Castiglione Falletto, it has a rather articulated trend with slopes rising from the provincial road for Barolo towards the hamlet of Annunziata, in a hilly arch that runs from the south-west and south-east to the north-east. The Tortonian soils of La Morra (clays, sand and limestone) meet the Elvezians of Castiglione (very compact brown marls). Here we find the production of important Barolo wines including Gattera 2016
Barolo Gattera 2016 is obtained through maceration with the skins in steel tanks, alcoholic fermentation in stainless steel where it also performs malolactic fermentation. Subsequently the wine is aged in oak barrels for 24 months. After being decanted in stainless steel, the wine can be bottled without filtration or clarification. Its characteristics are ruby ??color tending to garnet, fruity and floral perfume, enveloping and soft flavor with a delicate and salivary tannin. Combined with red meats and aged cheeses it is fantastic!

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. Today, our winery produces 80 thousand bottles from about 14 hectares of vineyards distributed throughout La Morra and Monforte d’Alba. 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.
