    Barbaresco ‘Asili‘ - Nebbiolo

    Vintage

    Bruno Giacosa's 2012 Barbaresco Asili benefitted from a warm growing season. The wine opens to a dark, compact appearance and shows an impressive level of aromatic intensity and complexity. The tannins are slightly less mature and more astringent in 2012 compared to 2011. This bodes well for the aging potential of this beautiful wine. Fresh acidity caps a very pretty portrait of the Nebbiolo grape. This is a lovely offering from this historic producer. 94/100 Monica Larner

    Bruna Giacosa tells me that the 2014 vintage posed greater challenges to the Barolo area than it did to Barbaresco. Barolo got twice the rainfall compared to Barbaresco. Specific pinpoint areas of Monforte d'Alba and La Morra lost up to 80% of their crop to the soggy conditions. The Barbaresco area lost 20% on average in return.
