Wine Description

(2003 Vintage) "The estate's top Barbaresco is the Bricco Asili. Made from vines that are over 25 years old and aged in 100% new oak, the 2001 displays a deep color and is darker, richer and more concentrated than the Bernardot, with notes of licorice, tobacco and spices dominating the nose. On the palate it is masculine, austere and balsamic, with flavors of dark fruits and plums, finishing with chewy tannins. Anticipated maturity: 2009-2021" Robert Parker's Wine Advocate 92 Points
