The 2011 Barolo Gavarini Vigna Chiniera is a drop-dead gorgeous beauty. Sweet floral and spice notes meld into bright red stone fruits and mint, supported by fine, chalky tannins that give the wine its sense of energy and tension. Rose petal, mint and perfumed red berries wrap around the textured finish. The 2011 is vivid, alive and crystalline in its beauty. Plenty of potential here.
