Barolo Gavarini Chiniera 2019
It is born on land at 320-360 meters above sea level which has a calcareous and sandy soil, the average age of the vines is 35 years.
The approach to this wine is also very different since Gavarini Chiniera is Elio Grasso’s Barolo which stands out for its elegance and finesse, even more ready to be drunk immediately.
“Traditionalist” maturation in large Slavonian oak barrels, lasting approximately two years, to support but not condition the organoleptic spontaneity of this cru, and subsequent 8-10 months in the bottle before being released on the market.
On the nose the bouquet is very complex, berries, blueberries and plum, a note of violet is accompanied by balsamic suggestions of eucalyptus and spicy notes of cloves and licorice, the latter which also finds an immediate response in the mouth. On the palate we are surprised by a certain freshness, tannins already in perfect balance and a good flavor that allow this Barolo to bind well even with more risky combinations.
Excellent now and even better in fifteen years, if preserved properly.
