Barbaresco Asili

Italy, Piedmont


Barbaresco Asili

Ethereal floralness wafts from the glass, then earthy notes, summer rain, fresh cherries and tart strawberries. This is surely Barbaresco and in particular Asili cru at it finest. Extremely balanced, linear acidity and grippy tannins, broad mid-palate and a focused centre of delicate red fruit. Bring on the roast pheasant.

Exploring Asili Cru

Asili cru is surely one of the most famous and representative climats of the appellation and is synonymous with the town of Barbaresco, with its amazing finesse and power, and disarming elegance and longevity. The vineyards start at 290m above sea level and drop down 90m to the bottom of the hill. The land is marked by the presence of St. Agata fossil marne and is south-south west facing. Ceretto owns just over one hectare at the top (bricco) of the hill. Due to its specific undulations this plot could be considered a clos or stand-alone vineyard - and indeed, the grapes from this plot have been vinified separately as a single parcel since the early 1970s.Ceretto_Barbaresco Asili_2020_WBSS24


Ethereal nose; floral notes waft from the glass followed by earthy notes, summer rain, fresh cherries and tart strawberries. Extremely balanced on the palate where the linear acidity and grippy tannins are met by the broadness of the mid-palate and a focus centred on delicate red fruit. A very attractive and intriguing wine!


A versatile wine given its wonderful structure. Pair with braised duck or pheasant with a mushroom jus or steak tartare.
