Barbaresco, Asili, 2016

1 case
Equiv. £35.83 per bottle

Tasting Note:

The tannins are very present initially at the front of the palate, but gradually melt into the wild strawberry, rose apricot and cherry fruit.

After a two month submerged cap fermentation the wines are then aged in used Slavonian oak casks of 20-50hl for 24 months.
