A multi-faceted Barbaresco Riserva in a class of its own! Volume, elegance, strength and density. Finely rounded tannins, berry, mineral, enormous potential.

Very elegant and mineral wines come from the Asili vineyard. A legendary vineyard that lies in the middle of the Barbaresco area and runs in a south-westerly direction. This location is very important for the Grasso family. It is the vineyard with which the family history began and the Asili wines have remained the flagship of the winery to this day.

Since the 2011 vintage, Giulio Grasso has also been producing a Riserva from Nebbiolo grapes from the Asili vineyard. In order to receive the Riserva rating, very strict regulations must be adhered to. For example, the Riserva has to be expanded / stored for 50 months before it can be placed on the market. The winery only produces this Riserva in a very limited edition when the berries are ripe and the quality of the grapes is optimal.

In the case of hand-picking, only the very best berries are selected for vinification compared to the classic Asili. The grapes are then very carefully placed in small boxes and immediately brought to the cantina for processing. There, the grapes are first de-stemmed and gently pressed, and fermentation is then triggered by natural yeast in a temperature-controlled stainless steel tank. The maceration time is 60 days to achieve a high extract. The wine then goes through a 50 month maturation process in used tonneaux oak barrels including a 1 year bottle storage before it goes on sale.

The result is a truly great Barbaresco wine. Elegance, harmony and balance characterize this wine. The berry, mineral and balsamic aromas underline the complexity of this wine and the long-lasting aftertaste is very impressive. The tannins are finely woven and create a wonderful mouthfeel. A Barbaresco that immediately shows its class but calls to its full potential over the next 20+ years. A perfect accompaniment to roasts, red meat and mature cheese.

The winery operates integrated viticulture.
