Produttori del Barbaresco Barbaresco Asili Riserva 2013

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

This on the other hand was totally rocking, pumping out layered aromatics of dried orange rind, angelica root, floral tones, rosehips, sweet bay leaf, fleshy dark fruits and fine balsamic candle wax top notes. Aromatically fine and precise. Racy entry with superb balance that leads to an elegant mid-palate with rich ripe fruit flavors that dance around the mouth with wonderfully vibrant energy This is so lively and complex without huge weight. It is simply authoritative. Brilliant stuff 2009-2020 95pts

Founded in 1958, the priest of the village of Barbaresco, recognizing that the only way small properties could survive was by joining their efforts, gathered together nineteen small growers and founded the Produttori del Barbaresco. From its humble beginnings making the first three vintages in the church basement, Produttori del Barbaresco has grown to a 52 member co-operative with 250 acres of Nebbiolo vineyards in the Barbaresco appellation and an annual production of over 500,000 bottles. Its vineyards amount to almost 1/6 of the vineyards of the area. Each member is in full control of their land, growing Nebbiolo grapes with the skill and dedication they have honed over generations. Playing a key role in elevating the quality level of Barbaresco over the years, Produttori del Barbaresco produces a simpler Nebbiolo Langhe, a Barbaresco blend and nine single vineyard wines produces in premier vineyards: Asili, Rabajà, Pora, Montestefano, Ovello, Pajè, Montefico, Muncagota and Rio Sordo.

Nettle, white rocks, seared cherry, lingoneberry and delicate wild flowers explode from the glass then there is a base of truffly freshly tilled earth, beef broth, dried rose, cough syrup, mocha and a medicinal menthol tone to linger over. Richly fruited with intense wild berry fruit, tobacco, mineral, aromatic wood, leather and white pepper nuances. Sweet tannins and superb length with a lean, transparent, sinewy feel. Fantastic. 94pts

The 1979 Produttori del Barbaresco Asili Riserva, came across as slightly corked, but you could still sense this wine’s dark, earthy qualities through it all. On the nose, there was a burst of old library books, but with a little more exploration I found green peas, with dark, almost black fruits and topsoil. The palate showed tight with faded cherry and tar, but it gave way to a pleasant sour red fruit finish. I’d love to try another bottle of this wine to see it in all its glory.

One of the absolute highlights in this portfolio of utterly amazing wines, the 2008 Barbaresco Riserva Asili possesses marvelous depth and richness, but also little of the early approachability and sexiness of Asili. With time in the glass, the wine’s inner perfume gradually emerges, but ultimately this is a Barbaresco to bury in the deepest corner of the cellar. Once again, the Produttori have done a fabulous job with the Asili. The 2008 has nerves of steel and a huge, never-ending finish. It is by far the most imposing and structured Asili I have ever tasted from the Produttori. Anticipated maturity: 2018–2048.

Good bright, dark red. Enticing, Burgundian aromas of cherry, raspberry, wild herbs, spices and truffle, accented by high notes of rose petal and orange peel. Rich, round and fat with concentrated fruit, but given a light touch by harmonious acidity. A real fruit bomb, with complicating nuances of spices and herbs. The rising finish features very fine-grained tannins that arrive late and explosive juicy freshness. Has the firm spine and reserve to support a long and graceful evolution in bottle. A great vintage for this cru.

Though fleshy, this red shows elegance and austerity at its core, courtesy of the firm, dry tannins and spicy underbrush flavors. The dried cherry fruit shows hints of rose and licorice, and this ends with a long, if tannic, finish, with fine potenti... Wine Spectator. A Nebbiolo wine from Piedmont in Italy. 2007 Produttori del Barbaresco Barbaresco Riserva Asili 750ml

Sattes Kirschrot; typischer Nebbiolo-Duft nach Weichselkirschen, Dörrobst, Nüssen und Holzgeschmack. Klassisch im Gaumen, kräftige Tannine und würzige Holzaromen. Feurig und anhaltend im Abgang.

Good full, medium red. Sexy, vibrant aromas of strawberry, flowers, truffle and minerals. Silky-sweet on entry, then energetic and strong in the middle, boasting lovely stuffing and superb definition. This rather powerful vintage of Asili really projects its fruit on the strong finish, which features serious tannic grip. The Produttori’s Asili bottling has been my default purchase here since the late ’70s.

WA 93pts. - WS 92pts. - Winemaker Notes - This spectacular vineyard has created in the past some of the greatest Barbaresco and it has a strong following all over the world. The wine is intense, certainly not a monster but nevertheless with a very imposing personality. Usually quite close in its youth it opens up slowly showing impeccable complexity and style a classic Barbaresco, and also one of the most distinctive vineyard of the region.
