Fresh and vibrant on the nose after 49 years. Rose petals and potpouri.

Super light and pale in color.

Gamey, leathery, earthy and super elegent on the pallet.

The 2014 Barolo Via Nuova is a blend of six sites - Liste, Terlo, Ravera di Monforte, Mosconi, Gabutti and Baudana - all of which are bottled as vineyard designates by other growers. There is something about the art of the blend that can be convincing, especially in challenging vintages such as 2014. The Via Nuova is a veritable explosion of aromas, flavors and sensations. Super-ripe red cherry, plum, kirsch, cinnamon and lavender all rush from the glass. Sweet, perfumed and beautifully layered throughout, the 2014 Via Nuova is all finesse. (Antonio Galloni, Vinous, February 2018)

More in the zone right now, ready to rock but it is firm from youth, but the fruit, yeah that dimension is very pleasing.

Chiara is always a stunner. This baby needs more time. Hold for another 5-10 years.

Still a baby. Wait. If you can. All the classic flavors you expect with such grace and understated power. Chiara is the best. Simply the best.
