Description Sub Region Producer Notes
 
2015 saw a terrific growing year in Piemonte, and Giacosa’s Barbaresco Asili embraces its ripeness with a tannic, vibrant grip--it’s tremendous. Plump red and blue fruits mingle with incense, tarry earth, crushed violet petals, and warm baking spices in this beautifully structured wine. Savory minerals and a nice acidic core propel this wine’s extended finish that studs the cheeks with chewy tannins. This second cru Barbaresco comes from the first vines Bruno Giacosa purchased in this region, a south-southwest-facing 6.2-acre plot with sandy, clay soils. The Giacosa estate adheres to traditional protocol to make his Barbaresco Asili, macerating its Nebbiolo grapes for more than three weeks and then aging the wine for 18 months in botti and six months bottle.
