2006 Elio Grasso - "Gavarini Chiniera" Barolo (1.5L)
The vineyards of Elio and Gianluca Grasso are situated in some of the best land in all of Piemonte, within the commune of Monteforte. The vineyard Gavarini is a fabulous site for Nebbiolo, due to its perfect exposition and its chalky, limestone-rich soil. The Gavarini displays high-toned, bright fruit aromas with a touch of spice and oak. On the palate it is rich, generous and smooth, with a mineral element that is unique to Gavarini. The length and depth are remarkable; expect long life in a proper cellar.
