Description Sub Region Producer Notes
2014 saw a wet, chilly, challenging growing year in Piemonte, but Giacosa’s ‘14 Barbaresco Asili Riserva shows that great winemakers can make great--even iconic--wines in “off” vintages. Extraordinarily perfumed, the ’14 Barbaresco Asili Riserva wafts with kaleidoscopic scents: juicy red fruits, brambly berries, freshly tilled loam, crushed violet petals, and sprinklings of herbs, crushed rocks and baking spices. The wine’s palate echoes this mesmerizing complexity, shifting with every moment to reveal a progression of intense, detailed notes. Fine-grained yet substantial tannins, solid acidity, and a linear structure argue for aging, but in time, this Barbaresco Riserva will be astonishing.  The cru Barbaresco Asili comes from the first vines Bruno Giacosa purchased in this region; however, beginning in 2007, Giacosa incorporated his parcel known as Rabaja into his Asili bottling, and this rich, opulent, and complex expression has grown yet more layered and nuanced. In 2014, the grapes for Barbaresco Asili Riserva macerated in stainless steel for about two weeks, and the wine aged for 32 months in barrel, followed by about 18 months in bottle.
