Grasso's 2011 Barolo Gavarini Vigna Chiniera captures the essence and personality of the year in its inviting, radiant personality. Bright red stone fruits, crushed rocks, pine, mint and flowers are all lifted and aromatically expressive in the glass. The Gavarini is already quite open and inviting. I imagine it will offer a wide window of pure drinking pleasure over the next 20 years or so. This is a striking Barolo from the Grasso family.

A wine with lots of berry and chocolate character plus hints of walnuts. Full body, soft and velvety tannins and a flavorful finish. Juicy finish. As good as the 2010. Better to drink in 2018.

The 2011 Barolo Gavarini Chiniera shows a terrific level of balance and harmony despite the warmer-than-average growing conditions in 2011. The bouquet here is generous and rich with shapely tones of spice, dark fruit, grilled herbs and dried flowers. It also excels in terms of its textural richness that is powerful and elegant at the same time. The wine should continue its bottle evolution over the next ten years. - Monica Larner

Dark berry, tobacco, leather and a balsamic note are some of the aromas you’ll find on this stunning wine. The firm, full-bodied palate delivers ripe black cherry, black pepper, licorice and chopped mint alongside youthfully assertive but refined tannins that need time to unwind. Drink 2021–2031.
