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.

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.

Anticipated maturity: 2018-2033. - Robert Parker 97+ Points 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 nee...

Winemaker's Notes:

Harvest period and method: second 10 days of October, manual harvest. The vinification procedure for Barolo Gavarini Vigna Chiniera involves fermentation for 12-16 days in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks, with daily pumping over. After completing malolactic fermentation in stainless steel, the wine matures for two years in 25-hectolitre barrels of Slavonian oak. Bottling normally takes place in August. The wine then stays in the binning cellar for 8-10 months before release.
