2019 Elio Grasso, Barolo "Gavarini Chiniera"

The 2019 "Gavarinii Chiniera" deserves a special place in your cellar. A sure classic blue-chip that will rest well for a decade or two. This Cru is consistently the benchmark standout of the Grasso lineup. 

It displays a deep crimson/ruby core moving to slight hints of orange at the rim, with a characteristically brooding nose of dried cherry, wild strawberry, tobacco, blood orange peel, rose petals, anise, cedar, and leather. On the palate, it is dense, mineral, and muscular, with ample tannin and mouth-watering acidity. It’s a heady glass of wine, to be sure, one that should enter its peak drinking window around its 10th birthday and continue to age gracefully for another decade-plus beyond that. Few wines in the world are surer bets for the cellar, but whenever the time comes for you, pair this with something braise-y and rich to tame it.
