Vintage nuances making a palatable difference

In the annals of fine wines from Italy, the year 2015 holds a special mention - not just for the favourable climatic conditions it enjoyed but for the distinctive profile of wines it birthed. True to this signature, our 2015 Barbaresco Asili D.O.C.G. by Bruno Giacosa is beautifully structured with luminous layers that intrigue your senses.

The hot summer of 2015 yielded more concentration and power in the Nebbiolo grape, gently shifting the attribute scale towards richly defined flavours. It starts with an inviting bouquet filled with classic aromas of pipe tobacco, violet, and forest floor while a swirl brings forth ripe berries with balsamic whiffs.

In 2013, the father and daughter winemaking team of Bruno and Bruna Giacosa decided not to produce their Barbaresco Asili. They made a Rabajà 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.
