Winemaker Notes

The 2007 is a potent vintage, but very elegant at the same time. This wine is very drinkable; the tannins are already perfectly integrated into the wine. The Gavarini Chiniera is very complex providing more darker fruit characteristics and important tannins. Perfect those who wants enjoy a young Barolo in top form.

Critical Acclaim

ST 93
International Wine Cellar

Good medium red. Downright Burgundian nose offers redcurrant, strawberry, menthol, crushed stone and flowers; vibrant yet reticent. Sweet, broad and fine-grained, with a light touch to the slightly imploded flavors of plum, mocha, earth and spices. Finishes impressively broad, with a juicy quality and ripe dusty tannins. Give this four or five years in the cellar.

RP 93
The 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. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2027.
