Our Asili expresses itself in a unique manner, but does not disrupt expectations or erase landmarks. It does not violate the canons of the appellation, it interprets them. The wine is a distillation of aromatic lightness and sobriety. The nose is piquant, deep, and tapering: it is an ode to blood orange, to dog rose, to the small, crisp fruits. It is monumental in the mouth, instilled with prodigious tannins and significant acidity: elements that are at the base of its proverbial capacity for ageing.

The 2016 Barbaresco Asili (with 4,000 bottles made) is the most articulate and complete of the Barbaresco wines presented by Ceretto from the 2016 vintage. The wine offers momentary sweetness, with cherry and redcurrant followed by extremely silky and fine texture. After that bright berry fruit, the bouquet lays out dry notes of crushed stone and minerals. I most enjoyed the extremely fine texture of this wine, along with its accessible and elegant approach. Serve it with delicate crackers and a liver pâté or terrine.

Ceretto's 2016 Barbaresco Asili is another stunningly beautiful wine from Ceretto. Here, too, the wine's energy and tension are simply dazzling. Bright red cherry fruit and floral overtones abound in this taut, crystalline Barbaresco. Readers will have to be patient with the 2016, but it is a jewel of a wine. Deceptively in its mid-weight structure, the 2016 packs a serious punch and really sizzles with vibrancy.

A beam of cherry and kirsch is supported by a backbone of assertive tannins in this elegant red. Vibrant and open, showing nice overall equilibrium. Needs a year or two to integrate the tannins. Best from 2023 through 2042. 333 cases made, 12 cases imported.

Forest floor, rose, iris, woodland berry, new leather and camphor aromas are front and center. The lean, liner palate is still youthfully austere, offering sour cherry, roasted coffee bean, star anise and botanical herbs set against vibrant acidity and assertive, close-grained tannins. Drink 2023-2030.
