Ceretto Azienda Vitivinicole Barbaresco DOCG Bricco Asili 2017Regular price $456.00
“Asili is undoubtedly the highest expression of the elegance and complexity of Barbaresco. This historic vineyard, which is one of the most popular in the DOCG, evokes childhood memories to me. Shortly after the construction of the homonymous winery, I remember me and my cousins playing hide and seek among the barrels.”
Asili expresses itself in a unique manner, but does not disrupt expectations or erase landmarks. It does not violate the canons of the appellation, it interprets them. The wine is a distillation of aromatic lightness and sobriety. The nose is piquant, deep, and tapering: it is an ode to blood orange, to dog rose, to the small, crisp fruits. It is monumental in the mouth, instilled with prodigious tannins and significant acidity: elements that are at the base of its proverbial capacity for ageing.
