Giacomo Ascheri Barolo Coste Bricco 2004

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Fruit from Podere di Sorano Serralunga 15 days on the skins then aged for 28 months in Slavonian oak 60% used/ 40% new Open and giving on the nose with black spice tones, tea, animal fur, leather, smoky/salty, sea air, nori, medicinal tones, great complexity and then layers of sunburned wild strawberry fruits emerge adding a nice sweetened tone. Soft in the mouth with a sweet edge on entry then acids and fine tannins adding definition and volume, nicely balance and elegant with blackberry fruit gently kissed by tones of leather, earth, and blue slate. Fine length anf graceful on the finish with a lovely bitter/sweet tone ending with cleansing acids on the finish that allow the finale to pop with bright lingonberry fruits. Very nice and complete Barolo, great complexity and with the potential to improve 92pts.
