2011 Barbaresco Asili Riserva Ca del Baio



Quality and rarity in Barbaresco really doesn’t get much higher than this. 'An absolute stunner' from Barbaresco’s greatest vineyard in an excellent vintage: the 2011 Barbaresco Asili Riserva from Ca’ del Baio is a gorgeous wine and a must for any collection.

 

Ca’ del Baio is a winery that should be on any Barbaresco lover’s radar. Drawing on decades of experience and some of the best holdings in Barbaresco - their parcel of Asili was a founding portion of the famous Produttori - they craft fine, seductive wines that Galloni describes as 'terrific'.

 

Asili is the jewel in Barbaresco’s crown, and, in a year as good as 2011, the Riservas from here are utterly phenomenal. The Ca del Baio is no exception and to Galloni offers 'nearly indescribable beauty'.

 

With just 250 dozen made and a perfect combination of a superb vintage, excellent winemaking and exceptional vineyard, we’re expecting this to move quickly and so are offering in cases of three bottles.

An absolute stunner, the 2011 Barbaresco Riserva Asili, emerges from the glass with a mélange of exotic, beguiling aromatics. Lavender, pine, rose petal, savory herbs and melted road tar form a fabric of nearly indescribable beauty. Proprietor Giulio Grasso elected to leave the wine on its skins until the end of November. Power and finesse have never been so seamless here. Although just bottled, the 2011 Asili Riserva is a great wine in the making. (Oct 2014) www.vinous.com Drink 2018-2031
