This single-vineyard Barbaresco expresses a complex, ethereal bouquet with notes of dried cherries, roses, violets, licorice, and sweet tobacco. On the palate, this wine highlights excellence in the range of Barbaresco.

The 2019 Barbaresco Asili is ample, creamy and resonant. All the signatures of this site come through in a Barbaresco of breadth and resonance. Even so, the 2019 remains light on its feet. There is plenty of depth and persistence, but it is expressed in more of an understated manner. It's a beautiful wine.

Ceretto enjoys a long and close relationship with the Asili cru of Barbaresco. The winery has chosen to fermented these grapes apart since the early 1970s. Their 2017 Barbaresco Asili brings you close to a sense of place. Fruit comes from a 1.3-hectare site with classic Sant'Agata marl soils. Beyond the dark fruit, much of the bouquet recalls crushed stone and iron rust, with other territory-specific aromas that are characteristic of Nebbiolo in its most naked state. You feel a touch of earthiness too, thanks to those slightly looser, open-knit tannins. Shaved truffle, dried blackberry and pressed rose seal the deal.

A fruity, round-textured Barbaresco with dried-strawberry and cherry character and undertones of watermelon. It’s medium-to full-bodied with polished tannins and a flavorful finish. I like the slightly bitter citrus character at the end of the palate. Better after 2022.

This red's cherry and strawberry fruit is framed in toasty, spicy oak, with an overall feel of harmony. Tannins are present yet well-mannered and the finish is long and expansive. Best from 2023 through 2038. 150 cases imported.

Aromas of blue flower, woodland berry, forest floor and spice shape the nose. The taut, rather austere palate is less expressive, exhibiting dried cherry, hazelnut and vanilla alongside grainy tannins that leave a firm, drying finish. Give it several years to unwind then drink sooner rather than later.
