2000 Barolo Gavarini Vigna Chiniera, Elio Grasso
A large scaled, warm, a bit all-over-the-place kind of nose with notes of cooked cherries, fir wood, dusty earth and old tobacco. Not really to my liking, a bit ragged.
The taste is seedy and broad with notes of dried up cherry jam, hot earth, dry licorice and fried mushrooms. Long. Some warmth. Better on the palate than on the nose. Drink up.
