Why We're Buying

Wine critic Luigi Veronelli wrote, "The land, the land, the land, the land, always, the land." Investing in high-quality land is the best way to produce world-class wine. With Ceretto Barbaresco Bricco Asili, the nebbiolo comes from a single vineyard that the Ceretto family has fostered for three generations. Give the Barbaresco at least five years in the cellar and watch the land reveal the best version of itself.

The aromas of cherries and strawberries are bright and vivid. Medium to full body, firm and silky tannins and a solid finish. Very subtle and refined with gorgeous finesse. Hard not to drink now, but better in 2021.

Vinous

Ceretto’s 2016 Barbaresco Asili is another stunningly beautiful wine from Ceretto. Here, too, the wine’s energy and tension are simply dazzling. Bright red cherry fruit and floral overtones abound in this taut, crystalline Barbaresco. Readers will have to be patient with the 2016, but it is a jewel of a wine. Deceptively in its mid-weight structure, the 2016 packs a serious punch and really sizzles with vibrancy
