Asinone 2006 - 90 Points, Wine Spectator/ Offers sweet berry notes, with hints of licorice and flowers. Full-bodied, with bright acidity and a berry and citrus fruit aftertaste. Clean and crisp. A chewy style, with a lot of new wood.
Asinone 2006 - 92 Points, Wine Enthusiast/ This is a sophisticated and very modern approach to Vino di Nobile di Montepulciano with an evident oak intervention that adds layers of spice and smoke to a rich palate of forest berry and blackberry. This wine is smooth and dense in the mouth and offers very impressive staying power. Give it another five years of cellar aging.
Asinone 2006 - 91 Points, Wine Advocate/ The estate's single-vineyard 2006 Vino Nobile di Montepulciano Asinone is sweet, round and harmonious. The wine possesses lovely depth and volume in a full-bodied yet approachable style. Tar, smoke, licorice and earthiness linger on the long finish.
Asinone 2005 - 92 Points, Wine Advocate/ The 2005 Vino Nobile di Montepulciano Asinone is brighter, fresher and more energetic than the 2006. This focused, vibrant red offers plenty of floral red fruit intermingled with tobacco, licorice and new leather. Today the wine comes across as needing a few years in bottle, but this is a wonderful version of one of Montepulciano's elite bottlings.
Asinone 2004 - 91 Points, Wine Enthusiast/ This is a bold, meaty wine with thick aromas of smoke, cured meat, mesquite wood, ripe blueberry and sweet cherry. It makes a grand impression on both the nose and the tongue because of its exceptional density, its supple texture and its impressive length.
Asinone 2006 - Suggested Wines from Vino Nobile di Montepulciano, La Cucina Italiana/ Poliziano's single-vineyard Asinone is full-bodied in every way, but all of its earthy, smoky, licorice nuances are balanced by rich, round, sweet tannins that make it perfectly ready to drink.
"Asione" Vino Nobile di Montepulciano D.O.C.G. 2006 - 92 Points, International Wine Cellar/ Deep ruby. Aromas of roasted plum, dark berries, fresh herbs and mocha. Suave on entry, then fresh and energetic in the middle palate, with noteworthy intensity to the black cherry, herbal and licorice flavors. Finishes with a hint of sexy vanillin oak and a lovely creamy texture.
