What a pleasure it was to taste the 2001 Barbaresco Asili. The nose is expressive with well-delineated notes of spices flowers and tar that meld seamlessly onto an irresistible palate packed with vibrant layers of sweet ripe fruit with an open generous personality. This wine is showing a wonderful sense of inner purity right now and will be even better in a few years although its qualities are abundantly apparent even at this early stage. A great effort.

Wine Spectator, December 2006
Bright plum and cedar character with loads of underlying ripe fruit and rose. Full-bodied with fine silky tannins and a wonderful balance of fruit cedar and plum. A subtle wine that needs time to develop in the bottle... Bright plum and cedar character with loads of underlying ripe fruit and rose.
