Azienda Agricola Veglio Michelino e Figlio Barolo 2012

Barolo is the undisputed King of Northern Italian Red wine! When Barolo is good, drinking it is an ethereal experience that transcends simple sipping and becomes something much more. This week we have a beautiful, 90 Point example of the acclaimed 2012 vintage from Azienda Agricola Veglio Michelino e Figlio Barolo that is just too good to pass up. This dynamic wine begins with elegant scents of rose petals, blind baked pie crust, toasted almonds, tamarind paste, and crushed blueberries. It is the kind of nose that is so layered and so expressive that every passing swirl and sniff will reveal a new layer of interest that you didn’t notice the last time. And that’s what you want, isn’t it? Not just a good wine, a great wine! Firm, food friendly tannin encircles layers of raspberry puree, crushed cherries, and red currants as the wine gracefully transitions from entry to finish. Lingering notes of tar, creosote, and iron rich soil come through first while more delicate touches of wilted violets, dried orange zest, and pencil lead sit right at the edge of perception drifting lazily into and out of focus. If you love Old World Reds and you’re tired of all the sneaky sweet wines coming out of California these days then you are going to be all sorts of happy when you taste a bottle of this endearing 90 Point Barolo. Drink this beauty now or cellar it through 2025 so that it can develop even more of that wonderful tertiary character.
Food Pairing:
Barolo is built for food. With zesty acidity and firm tannins it will provide a worthy compliment to a wide range of hearty meals. I love it with a traditional mushroom risotto. But the holiday season calls for fancier fare and you better believe the 2012 Veglio Barolo is up to the task! Prime Rib? Heck yeah! Roast duck? Yessir! Beef Wellington? You’re darn right? If you’re dreaming of rich meals shared with family and friends then this is the wine that ought to be at the table! Cheers!
