The 2001 Barbaresco Riserva Asili is a winner. It opens with an utterly sublime nose that is followed by a lovely core of sweet red fruit, licorice, menthol and mineral nuances that reveal themselves as the wine sits in the glass. Expansive and long on the palate, this deceptively medium-bodied Barbaresco shows awesome purity and enough structure to drink well to age 20, perhaps beyond. Anticipated maturity: 2011-2021.
Good medium color. Very ripe aromas of strawberry and dried rose; just this side of jammy. Plush and velvety on the palate, with rich, broad red berry and floral flavors. Quite soft and full for this wine. The very fine tannins coat the entire mouth.
