This is pure and intense, exuding rose, cherry, strawberry, currant, mineral and wild juniper flavors, driven by the vibrant structure. The tannins are present yet refined, finishing long and resonant. A contrast of power and finesse. Best from 2025 through 2045. 1,110 cases made, 200 cases imported.

The 2016 Barbaresco Riserva Asili marries power and sensuality the way only Nebbiolo can. Soaring aromatics, beautifully pliant red-toned fruit and tons of pure depth emerge in a stunning Barbaresco that captivates all the senses. Silky, refined and exceptionally beautiful, the 2016 is quite simply one of the most complete Asilis I have tasted from the Produttori. It is an unforgettable wine.

This has a rather delicate nose offering aromas of mature red berries, cedar and camphor while the full-bodied but elegantly structured palate features raspberry jam, crushed Morello cherry and licorice. Enveloping, velvety tannins provide support. You'll also detect the warmth of alcohol on the finish, but the ripe fruit keeps it in check.
