The 2012 Barolo Gavarini Chiniera is one of the most beautiful, precise wines of the vintage. Finely cut and chiseled, the Gavarini exudes energy and tension, both signatures of this high-altitude, Monforte site. Crushed flowers, dark red berries, mint and crushed rocks are some of the signatures. So many 2012s are open-knit, but Grasso's Gavarini is going to need at least several years in barrel. If anything, the 2012 is a bit austere, but I say that in the best sense of the word. Exotic, alluring and totally stunning, the 2012 is a real knock-out.
|Score: 96||Antonio Galloni, vinous.com, March 2016|
Extremely perfumed with flowers and plum. Full body, deep and dense yet agile and fresh. Long, creamy texture. Walnuts and dark fruit. Drinkable but better in 2020.
