Garnet red colour with delicate orange reflections. Fine and complex bouquet with violet and wild berry notes. Its flavour is full, velvety and harmonious. Great elegance in this wine that in the best vintages can bear the qualification “Riserva” on the label.
This 2014 Barbaresco is one of the apogee of recent releases; it's a wine that embodies the expressivity, age-worthiness, collectability and sheer beauty of Italian wines. Derived from the first vines Bruno Giacosa bought in this region, Barbaresco Asili offers Giacosa style and fruit-forward approachability; Giacosa makes just 250 cases of its Riserva, and only in the very best vintages - since 1967, the estate has bottled it just six times. Giacosa's Barbaresco Asili has always been a rich, opulent, and complex expression; However, since 2007's addition of the Rabaja vineyard, it has grown even more layered and nuanced. Likened to the legendary 1990 Asili Riserva, the '07 shows the magical blend of aromatics, body, tannins, balance and flavor notes to make this wine the best of the best of the best. Rich and dark,
