Garnet red colour. Intense and complex bouquet with notes reminiscent of violet, liquorice and raspberry. Its flavour is full and robust with tannic texture. Wine of great personality that in the best vintages can bear the denomination "Riserva" on the label.

Wine AdvocateThe just-bottled 2003 Barbaresco Asili is the only Barbaresco the ultra-perfectionist Bruno Giacosa has decided to release in this difficult vintage and it shows why Giacosa, along with Angelo Gaja, is in a class of his own when it comes to Barbaresco. Medium-red in color, it offers an expressive nose along with delicate nuances of super-ripe red fruits, macerated cherries and alcohol. Made in an atypically lush style, yet balanced by a classic sense of structure and proportion, this medium to full-bodied Barbaresco is one of the highlights of the vintage. Anticipated maturity: 2008-2018.

Wine SpectatorStrawberry, with hints of earth and lemon rind. Medium- to full-bodied, with chewy tannins and a fresh finish. A little short. The only Barbaresco from Giacosa in 2003. Best after 2008. 1,100 cases made.
