Robert Parker, tasting note published in July 4th 2020

The Elio Grasso 2016 Barolo Gavarini Chiniera is immediately expressive and bright. The wine is savoury and rich with a generous bouquet of dried berries, spices, crushed flowers and even a hint of fresh market blueberry that we don't see in other wines. The bouquet moves towards balsamic notes with mint and rosemary the longer it stays in the glass. I also get aniseed flower and fresh liquorice root as a nice signature at the close. With aging in large Slovenian oak casks, the integration of tannins is spot on, as is the freshness and purity of those beautiful Nebbiolo nuances.

Elio Grasso

The winemaking procedure for Barolo Gavarini Chiniera involves alcoholic fermentation in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks, with daily pumping over. After completion of malolactic fermentation, the wine matures in 25 hectolitre Slovenian oak barrels. Bottling is normally carried out in August. Barolo Gavarini Chiniera then remains in the cellar for 8-10 months before being released.

Elio Grasso

We believe that being recognised first as a wine grower, and then as a wine producer, is the best way to honour, and continue the work of those who faced before us the challenges that working with nature and its products, such as wine, entails. This, and a desire to be true to ourselves, leads us to propose, without presumption, the convictions and conducts shared by all Langhe farming families, characteristics worth preserving and which we believe make the difference.
