Asili is a prestigious and historic Geographical Indication of the Barbaresco DOCG, a designation which has made vinification possible in only four municipal districts in Langhe: Alba, Barbaresco, Neive and Treiso. A majestic and ample cru, which turns 360° around the eponymous hamlet. Michele Chiarlo Asili Barbaresco is known for its elegance, which comes from the terroir. The soils (calceareous marl) have a bluish color due to the high content of magnesium and manganese. The vines are planted in the guyot style, and have southwest exposure. In the cellar, high-temperature fermentation on the skins is followed by aging in 55-liter oak tonneaux and then in bottle before release.
The color is garnet red with brilliant hues. Aristrocratic elegance with notes of violets, red fruit an fine spices on the nose. The palate is complex and enchanting with silky tannins and a surprising length.
