    Good bright, dark red. Enticing, Burgundian aromas of cherry, raspberry, wild herbs, spices and truffle, accented by high notes of rose petal and orange peel. Rich, round and fat with concentrated fruit, but given a light touch by harmonious acidity. A real fruit bomb, with complicating nuances of spices and herbs. The rising finish features very fine-grained tannins that arrive late and explosive juicy freshness. Has the firm spine and reserve to support a long and graceful evolution in bottle. A great vintage for this cru.

    One of the absolute highlights in this portfolio of utterly amazing wines, the 2008 Barbaresco Riserva Asili possesses marvelous depth and richness, but also little of the early approachability and sexiness of Asili. With time in the glass, the wine's inner perfume gradually emerges, but ultimately this is a Barbaresco to bury in the deepest corner of the cellar. Once again, the Produttori have done a fabulous job with the Asili. The 2008 has nerves of steel and a huge, never-ending finish. It is by far the most imposing and structured Asili I have ever tasted from the Produttori. Anticipated maturity: 2018-2048.

    The cherry and plum flavors are pure and allied to assertive tannins. Floral, tobacco, tea, iron and underbrush notes add accents, while the tannins leave a firm finish.

    splendid single vineyard barbaresco from the Pora vineyard of Dellaferera. True to type, strong vibrant fruit, has years to go in bottle, but approachable now and splendid with a smoked ham, collard greens, and ciabatta. Makes you want to live on a farm Italy.

Piedmont, which literally means “foot of the mountain,” produces some of Italy's finest red wines. Its clay, limestone, and sand soils are home to the legendary Barolo and Barbaresco wines, made from the extremely age-worthy Nebbiolo variety. Dolcetto and Barbera are considered to be more “workhorse” varieties, and produce the largest quantity of wine. The region is tucked in the cool northwest corner of the country, surrounded on three sides by the Alps. Fog often blankets the region, ensuring long, cool growing seasons.
