Description Sub Region Producer Notes
Intense, dense and concentrated, this wine revels in its warm vintage. Sweet, succulent red fruit cavort with roses, menthol, orange zest, warm baking spices, and herbs in this lush yet delineated ’12 Barbaresco Asili. As generous as this wine appears on the nose, fine-grained, dense tannins hold its opulence in check and suggest that this wine has terrific aging potential. This second cru Barbaresco comes from the first vines Bruno Giacosa purchased in this region. However, beginning in 2007 (Giacosa skipped releasing his 2006 Barbarescos and Barolos), the master vintner redrew the boundaries of his vineyards and incorporated his parcel known as Rabajas into his Asili bottling--an action that Piemonte's creative use of "cru" allows that the government-dictated rules of Burgundy do not. Giacosa adheres to traditional protocol to make his Barbaresco Asili, macerating its Nebbiolo grapes for more than three weeks and then aging the wine both in the barrel and the bottle to reveal this Barbaresco's pure, terroir-inflected fruit.
