The 2013 Barolo Gavarini Chiniera is racy, exotic and super-elegant, with a finesse to tannins that is almost impossible to believe in a young Barolo. This is an especially delicate, refined style that shows just how elegant Nebbiolo can be. Sweet red cherry, kirsch, chalk, mint, white pepper and rose petals meld into a super expressive, inviting finish laced with veins of bright, salivating acidity. The 2013 gets better and better with time in the glass, but its finest drinking belongs to the future. Drink: 2023-2043
95+ points | Antonio Galloni,

A 3 ha vineyard, 350-380 metres above sea level, south-facing, on relatively loose-packed, slightly clayey, calcareous soil. Average vine age is 25 years. Fermented in stainless steel and matured in large Slavonian oak for 24 months. The more masculine wine of the two Barolos, this is a wine to forgot about for a few decades.
