Professional Reviews

Decanter

D 91
"Bruno Giacosa passed away in early 2018 but his style and standards are being maintained by his daughter Bruna. Asili is a vineyard renowned for its finesse, and that's certainly evident on the nose, which is very fragrant and ethereal, displaying raspberry and redcurrant aromas. The palate is still unyielding, very tight and tannic, though it gains in volume and solidity on the palate. At present it lacks a little generosity, but it should put on more weight when it reaches adolescence. The long, spicy finish is still a touch dry."
