The Asij expresses a nice intensity and persistence on the nose, with hints of withered flowers. It demonstrates a well-balanced taste and good acidity in the mouth.
-Built at the top of the Asili vineyard, on one of the region's most revered sites, the Bricco Asili winery was the first of the Cerettos four estates built in 1973. Named for its location, "Bricco," meaning "top of the hill," it is located near the village of Barbaresco. "The 2010 Barbaresco Asij is a highlight thanks to the chiseled mineral tones that frame the wine’s inner fruit. The wine shows great structure and lingering tones of dried cherry, leather, cola and tobacco that build in momentum. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2023."
