BARBARESCO ASILI 14

The 2014 Barbaresco Riserva Asili is somber and dense in this vintage. Silky Asili tannins bring out the wine’s voluptuousness and soft
contours. Dark red cherry and plum fruit show some of the typical Asili sensuality, but the 2014 is a powerhouse that is going to need
time to come around. In 2014, Asili is unusually – almost uncharacteristically – austere.
95+ Vinous

“The ffteen hectare vineyard of Asili lies in the village of Barbaresco, in the northwestern section of vines that make up the
appellation. It lies in a band of vineyards that are the very heart of the best terroirs in the village of Barbaresco, abutting Martinenga
to the north and with Rabajà adjacent just to its east. The vineyard lies with a beautiful southern exposure, with the vines running
up the slope to an elevation of 280 meters above sea level. The terroir in Asili is made up of a mix of clay marl and the strong vein
of limestone running through it, giving the wines of Asili their raciness, perfume and lift. And indeed, top examples from Asili are
clearly among the most elegant and refned examples of Nebbiolo to be found anywhere in Piemonte, and it is not surprising that
Neive native son, Bruno Giacosa, long sought a top parcel in this superb cru. Asili is widely regarded as one of the greatest terroirs
in the entire region ofBarbaresco, with the blossomed wines of this vineyard offering up all of the haunting elegance that personifes
Barbaresco along with the intensity of ?avor and structural integrity that only the greatest red wines of the world can deliver.” - John
Gilman, View From The Cellar
