Jammy fruit on the nose with a prune edge to the strawberry jam aromas that picks up subtly sweet and herbal rose petal note and a hint of cooked beetroot with some air.  Broad with some tannin showing up before the acidity kicks in, this is a touch on the soft side full of ripe if slightly dull cherry fruit and packing considerable tannin. The tannin really clamps down on the finish and it's a bit on the dry side. Powerful but without finesse, though it does have a lovely core of limestone backed wild cherry fruit. 91pts

The 2009 Barolo Gavarini Vigna Chiniera is a gorgeous wine laced with sweet red cherries flowers mint and sweet spices. This is an undeniably sexy racy Barolo loaded with early appeal. I dont imagine the 2009 will be one of the most long-lived Chinieras but I also dont think that will be much of a problem. Readers will want to enjoy their 2009s while some of the more age worthy wines age in the cellar. By any standard this is one of the highlights of the year. Even with all of the inherent richness of the vintage the 2009 maintains gorgeous freshness and its trademark salinity. The Gavarini is a more typical Gavarini than the Ginestra. Antonio Galloni.

Bright medium red. Pretty aromas of redcurrant rose petal and sexy spices. Suave and fine-grained with pliant redcurrant and floral flavors nicely framed by harmonious acidity. Finishes with good structure and lingering notes of plum redcurrant and mellow oak. This high-altitude vineyard featuring 35-year-old vines planted on sand and limestone soil was harvested first in 2009. Stephen Tanzers IWC.


Winemaker's Notes:

We believe that to be acknowledged first as grape farmers, and then as wine producers, is the best way to honour, and continue the labours of, those who have faced before us the challenges that working with nature and her products, like wine, entails. This, and a desire to be true to ourselves, prompts us propose, without presumption, the convictions and conduct shared by all Langhe farming families, characteristics worth preserving and which we believe make the difference.
