Giacomo Ascheri Podere di Sorano Barolo 2008

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Tight and polleny nose with a bit of black olive and black tea, with small wild cherry fruit lurking underneath. This is light and fresh on the palate with an emerging herbal tone over the fresh strawberry and plum fruit, cut by mineral and licorice notes with some dried orange pith. The finish is clean and fresh, continuing to add nice cut and freshness. A bit earthy and savory. 90pts

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

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
