Price: $960 / bottle
By an Italian wine magazine
Asili, one of the most prestigious mentions, has always given us wines of great elegance, not too complex tannins and a very delicate fruit, in short, a Barbaresco that plays on finesse. From this important cru, in a vineyard of about one hectare at an altitude of 290 meters cultivated in biodynamic agriculture, the Ceretto family produces an extremely territorial wine, a champion of elegance and gracefulness, where complexity and finesse are in perfect harmony .
The 2013, despite the difficult climatic trend, the Nebbiolo was able to take great advantages from the end of the season with high temperatures, giving us wines that are perfect for aging and with an excellent structure.

The Ceretto 2013 Barbaresco Asili shows very nicely. The wine presents a slightly herbal personality with dried sage and rosemary that add to the balsamic intensity of the bouquet. Those characteristics contribute to a sense of vertical buoyancy and serve to underline the integrity of the fruit and oak-driven spice that are at the base of this wine. The results show impressive depth and lingering Nebbiolo flavors.
