Carlo Giacosa Barbaresco Asili 2019
|Italy, Piedmont, Barbaresco
"Maria Grazia Giacosa today runs this 5ha estate with her son, Luca. The filigreed elegance of Asili is almost always enhanced by the respectful winemaking style of the producer. This 2019 shines for its classy nose of watermelon and tar, cherry kernel and cinnamon, interchanging fruit and sweet spice. On the palate the graphite minerality gives personality and depth. It displays lively acidity and biting, extracted tannins; youthful, grainy but ripe. A wine of great personality with more volume and ability to age compared to 2018." 01/22
Rich, exhibiting cherry, currant, iron, tar and eucalyptus aromas and flavors. The finish is dominated by a tightly woven matrix of tannins today, requiring time and a cool resting place to integrate fully. Best from 2025 through 2043.
