2006 Barolo Gavarini Vigna Chiniera, Elio Grasso, Piedmont

Gianluca Grasso rates his 2006s very highly indeed. We were lucky enough to taste 2006-2009 inclusive and the 06s certainly had a perfume and classic structure, which for me is what great Nebbiolo is all about. A highly perfumed nose of exotic spices and rose petals follows through to a pure and elevated palate, firm yet elegant structure and surprising concentration. This is tightly wound and enormously long. It will be very good indeed.

Elio Grasso

The story of Elio Grasso begins not in the winery, but in the city of Turin, where Elio Grasso was working at a bank when his winemaking grandfather died. From that moment, he returned to his roots – since 1978 working in his eponymous winery on just 18 acres of hills surrounding Monforte d’Alba.
