2016 Produttori del Barbaresco Asili Riserva Barbaresco
The Produttori del Barbaresco 2016 Barbaresco Riserva Asili (with 9,029 bottles produced) is distinguished by its elegance and the very smooth and silky delivery of fruit managed here. Seamless transitions are made between wild berry, blue flower, limestone, earth and crushed stone. The wine is expertly stitched together and ever so polished and glossy, just like a ruby gemstone. The Conti, Lembo and Viglino families take credit for supplying the Asili fruit for this blend. Drink 2024 - 2050.
Monica Larner - Wine Advocate (June 2021)
The 2016 Barbaresco Riserva Asili marries power and sensuality the way only Nebbiolo can. Soaring aromatics, beautifully pliant red-toned fruit and tons of pure depth emerge in a stunning Barbaresco that captivates all the senses. Silky, refined and exceptionally beautiful, the 2016 is quite simply one of the most complete Asilis I have tasted from the Produttori. It is an unforgettable wine. Drink 2024 - 2041.
Antonio Galloni - Vinous
Liquorice root, floral perfume, spicy, sweet red fruit. Pure, controlled, fine brick dust tannin, stony and savoury, kind of tea and sage brushed. Long. Very firm wine in a tight framework. Drink 2024-2040+.
