    Excellent red ruby color. Deep aromas of black cherry, black raspberry, cassis, chocolate, flowers and herbs. Sweet, supple and very dense; rich and thick. Conveys the uncanny sweetness of the vintage without going over the top. Finishes with a thick coating of dusty tannins. This should be accessible early for a Giacosa wine.

    The 1997 Barbaresco Asili has developed stunningly since it was first tasted, a typical characteristic of Giacosa's wines. Surprisingly precocious and evolved for a wine from this estate, it possesses a dark ruby color with an amber edge, and abundant quantities of tobacco, cherry liqueur, incense, spice box, and licorice in its flamboyant nose. It is like candy, fleshy, full-bodied, unctuous, and silky.

    Elegant and subtle, with impressive aromas of ripe berries with hints of licorice. Medium- to full-bodied, with fine tannins and a fresh finish.
