Buy Ceretto Bricco Asili Barbaresco Bricco Asili
Wine Advocate 92 points - The 2006 Barbaresco Bricco Asili opens with a gorgeous bouquet of sweet roses, raspberries and spices that meld seamlessly into a core of super-ripe fruit. Soft and generous on the palate, the Bricco Asili reveals lovely length and a generous, enveloping finish. The tannins are quite soft in the 2006, which leads me to believe the wine will drink nicely with a minimum of cellaring. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2021. (Oct 2009)

For more than 80 years the Ceretto family has been making wine in Piedmontís Langhe. The family is most well known for producing coveted single-vineyard estate grown Nebbiolo wines and high quality Arneis and Moscato. Their wine production covers seven separate estates, while an eighth (I Vignaiolo di Santo Stefano) is co-owned along with two other growers. The Cerettos were the first producers in Piedmont to use stainless steel for fermenting red wine and adopted other modern techniques, including temperature control for fermentation, reduced maceration times and new oak aging. When Ceretto produced its first Arneis, only 74 acres of this grape were planted in the region. Today there are more than 1,200 acres planted to Arneis. The Ceretto Arneis is considered the benchmark and one in every five bottles of Arneis produced in Piedmont bears the Blange label.
Technical notes
The 3 acre vineyard, located in Barbaresco, is planted on soil of clay (48%), silt (33%) and sand (19%). Hand-picked, destemmed and fermented in stainless steel. Aged 20 months in 300 liter French oak barriques (50%) and 8 months in bottle. The finish is long and persistent.
