Why We're Buying

Elio Grasso Barolo Gavarini Chiniera is a force to be reckoned with. It balances a rich body with uplifting floral notes, a juicy core, and a focused finish. Wine critic Antonio Galloni praised the 2016 vintage as "a striking wine" with considerable aging potential.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

The 2007 Barolo Gavarini Vigna Chiniera opens with an exotic bouquet of candied red fruit, flowers, mint and minerals. This is an unusually opulent, racy style for Grasso. The Gavarini is a touch hot and alcoholic at first, but with several hours of air, that quality seemed to resolve itself nicely. Silky, beautifully integrated tannins frame a finish of exceptional elegance. The personality of the year marks the Gavarini to a significant degree. (AG) 93+
