Giacomo Ascheri Podere di Sorano Barolo 2004

Winemaker's Notes:

Sourced from the Ascheri family's finest vineyard - Sorano in Serralunga d' Alba, the grapes are picked during mid to late October. These are all picked by hand before being transported to the winery as quickly as possible. The wine itself is a garnet red colour. It has an ethereal bouquet, intense tar with a scent of dried flowers and a mineral note. A rich palate, balance and mature tannins contribute to its harmoney, distinction and intensity. This is a remarkably classy wine, with exceptional richness and tipicity. It would pair well with most grilled red meats, meat on the spit, game or with white and red meats with white and dark sauces.

Fruit from Serralunga 55 days on the skins then aged for 28 months in Slavonian oak 85% used/ 15% new Intensely fruity on the nose with a primary quality and incipient Asian spice tones. The fruit adds a bit of a dried fruit character and nuances of green cardamom and clove oil add complexity. This has absolutely jewel-like fruit in the mouth. It’s pretty hard and tight at the moment but with excellent depth. The solid acids and superb tannins frame the strawberry/rhubarb fruit and offer such a facetted feel. This will need substantial time and reveals very little on the mid-palate but the finish, though still compressed, has real pure rock licking minerality and fine, lingering ethereal red fruits. I love the focus of this wine. Great potential here but be patient 2012-2030 93pts

Fruit from the Podere di Rivalta in Verduno, 12-13 days on the skins then aged for 2 years, 1/3 in new Slavonian oak, 1/3 in used Slavonian oak, and 1/3 in Stainless steel. From vines in production only since 1999. Very fresh on the nose, icy fresh with layers of hay, dried grasses, green flowers, menthol top notes all over slightly liquory, brambly fruits. Lots of sweet fruits up front with good acidity and well-managed tannins offering an impression of a precise balanced wine that melds forward fruit with a crisp texture. The fruit is youthful with a touch of melon rind to the core of dark but fresh black fruit tones with an herby top note and a tarry, darkly fertile earthy core. This is very elegant on the finish with focused fruit that may be a bit simple but with excellent clarity and approachability. A very fine Barolo for the near term. 90pts
