External Reviews for Produttori del Barbaresco Barbaresco Riserva Asili
The 2004 Barbaresco Riserva Asili conveys an impression of sheer luxuriousness as it coats the palate with waves of ripe fruit that nearly manage to cover the wine's tannins. Generous and expansive on the palate, the wine reveals tons of depth and richness, with a long, satisfying finish. This remains a vibrant, pure Barbaresco in need of cellaring, yet readers who want to take this bottling out for a test drive won't be disappointed, but beware, the wine shut down quickly in the glass. Simply put, this is sublime stuff. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2024.
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.
Not a big Barbaresco, but a perfumed, delicate and very friendly red, with strawberry and floral character on the nose and palate. Medium- to full-bodied, with fine tannins and a fresh finish. Best after 2011.
Good full red. Subtly complex nose melds raspberry, truffle and underbrush lifted by floral high notes. Silky-sweet but subdued, with a fine-grained texture and lovely balance and mineral complexity. Displays more breadth and power than the Pora and Rio, and the rising finish shows suaver tannins and serious persistence.
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 Produttoriandrsquo;s Asili bottling has been my default purchase here since the late andrsquo;70s.
Aromas of raspberry and dried flowers follow through to a full body, with chewy tannins and a vanilla, berry and cherry aftertaste. This is backward and very fruity. Best after 2011.
