Ceretto Asij - Barbaresco

Tasting Notes Following the particularly soft and pleasant 2007 vintage, the 2008 Barbaresco Asij presents a very classic expression of the austerity and nobility of the Nebbiolo grape. Its ruby red color suggests that this young wine is just at the beginning of its evolution, an impression confirmed by the dominant fruit sensations, particularly red fruits, accompanied by hints of spice and wood. In the mouth, the wine opens with a fresh acidity and slight tannic astringency, but its elegant and powerful character comes through, concluding in a round finish and seemingly infinite persistency.
