Intense garnet red color. Notes of raspberry, blackcurrant and wild strawberry are found on the nose. On the palate, good structure is matched with freshness of fruit and fine tannins.
WS 95 Wine Spectator
"Macerated cherry, plum, mineral and leafy, herbal notes highlight this tightly wound red. Elegant, with silkiness up front and assertive tannins guarding the finish. Gains complexity with air. Best from 2022 through 2040."
JS 95 James Suckling:
"Very perfumed and pretty with cherry, dried fruit and orange peel. Hints of sandalwood, too. Full body, layered and refined. Smoke, tar and spice aftertaste to the fruit. Drink in 2019."
RP 94 Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
"In 2013, the father and daughter winemaking team of Bruno and Bruna Giacosa decided not to produce their Barbaresco Asili. They made a Rabaja expression instead. Asili was vinified separately again in 2014 and more recently to create the impressive 2015 Barbaresco Asili.
This wine was bottled one year ago in July and has been on the market since February. This expression offers accessible and generous fruit tones, with blackcurrant and dark plum. The wine delivers big inner power with evident tannic firmness and a point of astringency on the finish. All it needs is more time in the bottle."
