2013 Elio Grasso "Gavarini Chiniera" Barolo (Pre-Arrival)

SKU #1317573 96 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark Beautiful aromas of tar, roses and berries follow through to a full body, soft and silky tannins and a long and flavorful finish. Tight and focused. Fantastic wine. Drink or hold for many years ahead. Inner quote mark (7/2017)

96 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2013 Barolo Gavarini Chiniera is much showier than the Ginestra Casa Matè. An ample, resonant Barolo, the Gavarini Chiniera exudes richness from the get-go. Macerated cherry, kirsch, wild flowers and mint are some of the many notes that are laced together. Ripe, silky tannins add to the wine's considerable raciness. I am somewhat surprised by how well this gorgeous wine is showing today. (AG) Inner quote mark (2/2018)

95 points Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2013 Barolo Gavarini Chiniera stands apart in this tasting of Elio Grasso's new releases. The fruit portrayed shows a very crisp and focused quality. It absolutely pops from the glass with brilliant sharpness. Gianluca Grasso tells me lab reports confirm the higher acidic tenor of the wine, although this is not necessarily perceived acidity that you taste. Aromas of wild berry, balsam herb, licorice and smoke emerge delicately from the bouquet. The wine's mouthfeel evokes a profound sense of elegance thanks to those noble tannins and its silky texture. (ML) Inner quote mark (7/2017)

93 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Expressive and balanced, with plum, leather, tobacco, tar and iron flavors allied to a solid structure. A touch of licorice emerges and the minerality builds as this unwinds on the long finish. Still tannic, so be patient. (BS) Inner quote mark (11/2017)
