James Suckling Review
A tightly wound Barolo with chewy tannins and intense character of dark fruit, mushrooms, cedar and bark. It's full-bodied with lots of fruit on the finish, but reserved and tight. Give this three or four years to soften. Better after 2023.
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.
