- 'Asili' - the quintessential, elegent Barbaresco
- 2013 already being noted as an execptional vintage for Piedmont
- Available 2nd week of June
Produttori del Barbaresco has often been referenced as the 'greatest value in age-worthy wine' when their Barbaresco could be purchased widely and deeply by wine lovers and cellared confidently for up to 20 years or more. Now, with the world awake to the quality and beauty of nebbiolo from Piedmonte, the wines have steadily increased in price but can still represent excellent value compared to their peers. Produttori's 2013 'Asili' is highly perfumed and supple with its trademark, round, feather-weight tannin. Such impeccable balance on show here. A wine for the ages!
Absolutely stunning in every way, the 2013 Barbaresco Riserva Asili is also the most complete wine in the lineup at this stage. Floral, lifted and exquisitely beautiful, the 2013 speaks to regal elegance and finesse above all else. Silky tannins add to an impression of total sensuality. At this stage, there is almost no impression of tannin, as the wine is so impeccably balanced. The 2013 shuts down quickly in the glass, which may suggest it is headed for a long period of dormancy. Readers who can find the Asili should not miss it, as it is truly sublime. Drinking window: 2025-2043
