Asili is a prestigious and historic Geographical Indication of the Barbaresco DOCG, a designation that limits vinification to four municipal districts in Langhe, including Alba, Barbaresco, Neive and Treiso. A terroir known for elegance, the vineyard turns 360° around the eponymous hamlet. The soil is calceareous marl and has a bluish color due to the high content of magnesium and calcium. The vines are thinned of excess bunches at the end of summer, leaving 5-6 bunches per vine on average. Hand harvested grapes are fermented on the skins in oak vats and then aged for 18 months in average sized oak casks before refinement in the bottle.

Harvest Note
The 2019 vintage began with heavy rain and moderate snowfall the previous winter, with some snow in February that together accumulated an excellent water reserve. The classic spring weather was followed by hot and dry months of May and June. Abundant rainfall at the beginning of July allowed for an ideal and balanced ripening during the hot and dry summer season. The result was a vintage with a lesser number of grapes but characterized by outstanding quality.
Tasting Note
Garnet red in color, this aristocratic and complex wine offers notes of red fruits, violet, and fine spices. An elegant wine with a long, silky finish

Mushroom risotto, roast pork, rack of lamb

About the Grape

Young Nebbiolo can be tough, acidic and tannic; but mature, its blackberry and wild cherry flavors and aromas develop complex and sublime violet, rose petal, truffle and tar notes.
