15 Top 2010 Barolo

14. Elio Grasso Barolo Gavarini Chiniera (2010)

« Prev Next » 14 of 15
Delayed harvest a few days to get maximum ripeness , and it was already a late vintage, later than 2008 Smoky with a hint of cocoa on the nose followed by very mineral and herbal aromas, a tight floral note and lots of lingering camphor. Fine grained tannins lend this an austere, lean quality on entry, then this turns faceted in the mouth with great power and freshness. Elegant with fairly important red fruits and chinato herbs on the palate, this is rich with tannins and quite ripe but this offers compelling complexity with gorgeous freshness and complexity built on bright, juicy acids and wonderful balanced if a touch austere and on the elegant side of things. 94pts
