The vinification procedure for Barolo Gavarini Chiniera involves alcoholic fermentation in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks, with daily pumping over. After completing malolactic fermentation, the wine matures in 25-hectolitre barrels of Slavonian oak. Bottling normally takes place in August. The Barolo Gavarini Chiniera then stays in the binning cellar for 8-10 months before release.

Expressive and balanced, with plum, leather, tobacco, tar and iron flavors allied to a solid structure. A touch of licorice emerges and the minerality builds as this unwinds on the long finish. Still tannic, so be patient. Best from 2021 through 2038. 1,000 cases made.
