The Veglio family has been working the land for generations, but it was Angelo Veglio who pioneered the family’s Barolo production, buying his first vineyard in the 1960s. His son Mauro and wife Daniela took charge in the late ’80s, building their Cascina Nuova winery under the town of La Morra, beside the crus, Arborina and Rocche dell’Annunziata. As neighbours of Elio Altare, they were strongly influenced by the modernist movement. Since Mauro’s nephew Alessandro joined the business, however, the estate’s style and philosophy has slowly started shifting, influenced by his more traditional approach to winemaking. The wines have huge potential, and – with the family owning some of the best vines in Barolo – the future is bright for the Veglios.
