Winemaker's Notes

A complex, ethereal bouquet with hints of dog-rose, violet and liquorice. With its caressing, dry taste, in the mouth this wine highlights the excellence in the range of Barbarescos. Though it is capable of exciting the taste-buds after just a year in the bottle, the sensations are sure to increase on ageing: we recommend 3 to 15 years.

Critical Acclaim

"The 2007 Barbaresco Bricco Asili is pure Asili. Crushed flowers, raspberries, baking spices and menthol are given an additional layer of volume and richness by the deftly balanced French oak. This voluptuous, creamy Bricco Asili impresses for its polish and exceptional balance. The fine, silky tannins that are characteristic of this site frame the fruit beautifully through to the refined, eternal finish. The 2007 Bricco Asili is a gem from Ceretto. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2027. "
95 Points

"Marked by tar, blackberry and licorice notes, this is a more muscular version of Barbaresco. The firm structure keeps it lively, with plenty of sweet fruit on the finish. Best from 2013 through 2030. 206 cases imported."
92 Points

"What beautiful fruit to this red, with plum, dried berries, and spices on the nose. Full and juicy, with a medium finish. It’s a little tight now, but it shows a pretty, elegant character. Pull the cork after 2012."

Learn About Nebbiolo

Nebbiolo(neh-bee-OH-low) The King of Piedmont Nebbiolo is the key grape in the wines of Barolo and Barbaresco. It is not the most planted variety, but it does make the most distinctive and age-worthy wines. Native to Piedmont, Nebbiolo is a bit of a soil snob - it's finicky about where it grows and has long been the honored red grape of Northern Italy...
