#24 Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2012
The size of this wine begins with the intense ruby color. The nose shows delicate aromas of tobacco and leather as a backdrop to its fruity opulence. The hint of toasty oak is a tribute to Elio's skillful and judicious use of barrique aging. The tannins meld into the structure, allowing it to finish with length and consistency.
"The 2008 Barolo Gavarini Vigna Chiniera is flat-out great. Sweet roses, spices, mint, flowers and red berries are some of the notes that emerge from this profound, utterly moving Barolo. The 2008 possesses dazzling inner perfume, endless layers of bright red fruit and stunning overall balance. Fine, silky tannins frame the extraordinarily elegant finish. This is a fabulous wine from Gianluca Grasso and his family. Chalky notes frame an energetic, brilliant finish sprinkled with shades of the 1989. Anticipated maturity: 2018-2033.Rating: 97+"
The Wine Advocate
"Hints of coffee and sandalwood mark this rich yet racy red, whose core flavors are cherry, strawberry and
underbrush. There’s some muscle and density, firming up on the finish, with adequate sweet fruit for balance.
Best from 2015 through 2030."
"Good bright, deep red. Knockout nose offers pungent flinty minerality, white pepper, rose petal and spices; at once explosive and pure. Wonderfully intense, sappy and spicy on the palate, with a suave, fine-grained texture and great perfumed, floral delicacy. I might have picked this blind as a Chambolle cru. Less plush than the Ginestra Casa Mate but wonderfully tight and vibrant on the back end, in need of extended cellaring.

The King of Piedmont
Nebbiolo is the key grape in the wines of Barolo and Barbaresco. It is not the
most planted variety, but it does make the most distinctive and age-worthy wines. Native to
Nebbiolo is a bit of a soil snob - it's finicky about where it grows and has
long been the honored red grape of Northern Italy...Read More About Nebbiolo
