2017 Barolo Gavarini Vigna Chiniera, Elio Grasso, Piedmont

The 2017 Barolo Chiniera is a real beauty in the making, but it will need plenty of time to allow it to blossom fully. Notes of orange peel and morello cherries disavow any fears of a jammy vintage. The tannins are fine, and the finish is long and ethereal. Stunning.

2017 Barolo Gavarini Vigna Chiniera, Elio Grasso, Piedmont
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.
