Tasting Notes

The 2008 Asili is a very expressive, deeply flavoured wine with aromas redolent of cherries, plums, prunes and dried fruits. On the palate it has soft, rich red berry flavours with hints of spices, minerals and dried herbs. Firm tannins are balanced by ripe, warm fruit characters. A very satisfying, attractive wine, it will benefit from a few more years in bottle before drinking. Drink from 2018 to 2030.

Reviews & Scores

Aromas are full of plums and lemons that follow through to a full body, with silky tannins and a fruity, bright finish. A pretty combination of ripe fruit and crisp acidity. Need two years to come together. Triumph for the vintage. Try in 2013.

TASTING NOTES

“A darker, more structured Barolo than his sibling, Prapo’ is an incredibly pure expression of the terroir of Serralunga. Precise notes of red and black berries, forest floor and dark spices are framed by tight woven tannins and lively freshness. An exciting release that has the potential to be enjoyed for the next 10 years.” Armit Wines

TASTING NOTES

“Taut, elegant, ethereal expression of Nebbiolo. A purebred Barolo that entices with notes of red fruits, meadow flowers and just hints of Italian leather and spices. Already approachable, Cerretta will be a sure joy to revisit in five to ten years.” Armit Wines
