2009 Bruno Giacosa "Asili" Barbaresco (qty: 1)
Beautiful aromas of plums and chocolate follow through to a full body, with fine tannins and a focused finish. Tangy and fresh.
This rich red is packed with floral, sweet cherry, strawberry and anise aromas and flavors with a hint of menthol that stand up to the dusty tannins. An elegant wine, offering a long and satisfying finish, with a balanced impression overall. (BS)
Medium red. High-pitched, rather cool aromas of cherry, raspberry, white tobacco, medicinal herbs, minerals and menthol. Then Quite dry and backward on the palate, with mint and herb flavor dominating. Almost Barolo-like in its medicinal character. Very young and backward Asili, displaying terrific fruit through the retronasal passage. (ST)
