  • Score: 97 Vintage 2016 Wine Spectator Pure, exuding rose, cherry, strawberry, currant, mineral and wild juniper aromas and flavors. Intense and driven by the vibrant structure. The tannins are present yet refined, finishing long and resonant. A contrast of power and finesse. Best from 2025 through 2045. 1,110 cases made, 200 cases imported. Shelf Talker Full Page Review
  • Score: 97 Vintage 2016 Wine Advocate The Produttori del Barbaresco 2016 Barbaresco Riserva Asili (with 9,029 bottles produced) is distinguished by its elegance and the very smooth and silky delivery of fruit managed here. Seamless transitions are made between wild berry, blue flower, limestone, earth and crushed stone. The wine is expertly stitched together and ever so polished and glossy, just like a ruby gemstone. The Conti, Lembo and Viglino families take credit for supplying the Asili fruit for this blend. Shelf Talker Full Page Review
  • Score: 97 Vintage 2016 Vinous Media The 2016 Barbaresco Riserva Asili marries power and sensuality the way only Nebbiolo can. Soaring aromatics, beautifully pliant red-toned fruit and tons of pure depth emerge in a stunning Barbaresco that captivates all the senses. Silky, refined and exceptionally beautiful, the 2016 is quite simply one of the most complete Asilis I have tasted from the Produttori. It is an unforgettable wine. Shelf Talker Full Page Review
  • Score: 93 Vintage 2016 Wine Enthusiast This has a rather delicate nose offering aromas of mature red berries, cedar and camphor while the full-bodied but elegantly structured palate features raspberry jam, crushed Morello cherry and licorice. Enveloping, velvety tannins provide support. You’ll also detect the warmth of alcohol on the finish, but the ripe fruit keeps it in check. Shelf Talker Full Page Review
  • Score: 96 Vintage 2015 Wine Spectator Bright cherry and berry fruit picks up a saline edge in this fleshy red, which stays defined and vibrant despite the assertive tannins. In the end, all the components are in the right proportion; this just needs time to integrate. Best from 2023 through 2043. 1,111 cases made, 250 cases imported. Shelf Talker Full Page Review

  • Score: 96 Vintage 2015 Wine Advocate One of the protagonists in this group of nine, the Produttori del Barbaresco 2015 Barbaresco Riserva Asili (with some 13,333 bottles made) shows bright cherry fruit, dried raspberry and blood orange. The wine's delicate aromatic layering continues with rusty iron, aniseed, tea leaf and camphor ash. Those lifted and vertical aromas contribute to the energy and vibrancy that this wine awards to the palate. The finish is extremely polished and tight, and those pretty flavors are folded neatly into the wine's silky texture. This wine has many years, or decades, of aging built into its inner clock.

  • Score: 95 Vintage 2015 Wine Enthusiast Wild berry, violet, new leather, forest floor and eucalyptus aromas lift out of the glass. The elegant, full-bodied palate delivers dried black cherry, raspberry compote, licorice and dried mint alongside taut, polished tannins. Given the hot, dry growing season, this is a more powerful and concentrated version of Asili. Shelf Talker Full Page Review
  • Score: 94 Vintage 2015 Vinous Media The 2015 Barbaresco Riserva Asili is an attractive wine with a good bit of the Asili plushness and silkiness that makes wines from this site so alluring. As with all of these wines, the Asili is not as expressive of site as it can be in cooler years. Shelf Talker Full Page Review
  • Score: 97 Vintage 2014 Wine Enthusiast Fragrant and refined, this stunning red opens with captivating aromas of woodland berry, rose, violet, ground spice and a whiff of new leather. On the firm, elegantly structured palate, taut refined tannins intertwine with succulent red cherry, crushed raspberry, licorice and chopped herb while fresh acidity lends balance. It's already tempting but still young so give the tannins a few more years to unwind. Drink 2021–2034. KERIN O’KEEFE Shelf Talker Full Page Review
  • Score: 95 Vintage 2014 Wine Spectator Seamless from start to finish, this red features fresh cherry, strawberry, rose, mineral and subtle licorice aromas and flavors. Firm yet elegant, with fine harmony and a lingering aftertaste of fruit and mineral elements. Best from 2021 through 2042. 1,111 cases made, 275 cases imported. — BS Shelf Talker Full Page Review
  • Score: 95 Vintage 2014 Wine Advocate The 2014 Barbaresco Riserva Asili is a beautifully complete expression that shows precise and incisive aromatic intensity, followed by firm structure and impressive length. There is a brief interlude of mineral dustiness on the mid-palate that passes briefly to reveal more ripe cherry fruit on the close. I'm not sure what the total acidity is, but this expression gives the impression of being slightly less fresh than some of the other single-vineyard wines in this series of Riservas.
