The Produttori del Barbaresco, founded in 1958, now has 51 members and controls more than 100 hectares (250 acres) of premium Nebbiolo vineyards in Barbaresco. Each family is in full control of its land, growing Nebbiolo grapes with centuries old skill and dedication.
In great vintages, nine single-vineyard Barbarescos are produced from nine classic premium sites within the Barbaresco village boundaries: Asili, Rabajà, Pora, Montestefano, Ovello, Pajè, Montefico, Muncagota, and Rio Sordo. These are the geographical names of sites where Nebbiolo grapes have always been cultivated. The name of the single-vineyards, the total number of bottles produced, and the name of the owners of the vineyards are marked on the labels.
Serious, structured, dark and dense red with mega tannins, incredible architecture, a massive frame of intense, firmness set around the inky, deep and dark fruit characters, booze-soaked nuts and berries, layers of spice and earthiness. Thick set, broad shouldered, so dense, so long. Impressive on many levels.

Liquorice root, floral perfume, spicy, sweet red fruit. Pure, controlled, fine brick dust tannin, stony and savoury, kind of tea and sage brushed. Long. Very firm wine in a tight framework.

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.
