The Bricco Asili 2009 expresses a complex, ethereal bouquet with hints of dog rose, violet and liquorice. With its caressing, dry mouthfeel, this wine highlights excellence in the range of Barbaresco. Though capable of exciting the taste buds after just a year in the bottle, the sensations are sure to increase with additional ageing.
"The 2009 Barbaresco Bricco Asili is a pure joy to taste. Weightless and gracious, the 2009 wafts from the glass with the essence of freshly cut flowers, spices, red berries and crushed rose petals. The finesse of tannins elevates the Asili to a rarified air among the very best wines of the year. Seemingly endless layers of pure, textured floral fruit remain in the empty glass. This is a flat-out gorgeous wine in every way. I imagine the 2009 will enjoy a long and broad drinking window. Frankly, it is virtually impossible to resist today. "
