2004 Mauro Veglio Barolo Vigneto Arborina

2004 Mauro Veglio Barolo Vigneto Arborina with roasted lamb. My last and best bottle to date. Started off flabby and ripe on night one, then appeared bricking and brown on night 2, and finally drinking gloriously on night 3. Rosewater, tar, plum, and menthol. One of the best bottles of Barolo I’ve had in a while. Based on the phases this went through, I would guess that peak drinking window is still several years away, but at age 13 it is already drinking very well if given the right amount of air. If you open this and don’t like it, I suggest patience to let it come into its own before writing it off. It’s a temperamental one, this one. πŸ˜²πŸ˜

I am not a professional wine taster, nor do I have any professional training in the wine trade. I am a wine enthusiast who has spent countless hours tasting wines of many different styles. My palate is not aligned with a single wine critic, and I call all wines "as I taste them". My site is a source of tasting notes and wine recommendations as well as warnings without conflict of interest. You'll just have to figure out how your palate aligns with mine. My palate generally tends to veer towards Old-World wines that put a premium on terroir and lovely balance and finesse, rather than raw power...please keep that in mind as you read my notes.
