93 points Wine Spectator
"Ripe, with aromas of plums, preserved cherries and chocolate, this red wine is supported by tightly wrapped tannins. It offers lots of fruit that matches the structure and finishes with tobacco, spices and mineral elements. Best from 2023 to 2043. 335 cases made, 130 cases imported."
"Barbaresco. Tasted blind. Mid ruby with orange tinges. A little closed on the nose. Concentrated and very pure on the palate. Bags of concentrated sour cherry and coating tannins equally vying for attention on the finish. Long, embryonic and in need of much more time. 18/20 points. (WS)"
Vinous Reverie Notes
Asili - This spectacular vineyard has created in the past some of the greatest Barbaresco and it has a strong following all over the world. The main part of the Asili vineyard is a protected bowl facing South/West, next to Pora, but farther away from the river and the valley influence with warmer and less breezy microclimate during most of the summer. To the East, Asili ends with a bricco, top of the hill, also facing South/West and with a similar soil composition, bordering Rabaja. The wine is intense, certainly not a full bodied Barbaresco, but nevertheless showing a very imposing personality. Usually quite closed in its youth it opens up slowly with impeccable complexity and style… a classic Barbaresco, and also one of the most distinctive vineyards of the region.
