AWARDS & ACCOLADES

The Ascheri 2016 Barolo delivers a classic interpretation of the Nebbiolo grape, albeit with a plump and fruit-forward slant. The wine opens to dried cherries and blackberries with balanced background tones of spice, tar, leather and ash. These ethereal tones add to the elegance and depth of the wine. The character of this Barolo is dark and solid, making for an ideal medium to long-term proposition. When the wine is ready to drink five years or more down the line, I’d suggest a pairing with a heavier pasta dishes or risotto with wild porcini mushrooms.”

-92 POINTS

Intensely fragrant, this has enticing aromas of graphite, chopped mint, forest berry and new leather that practically leap out of the glass. Mirroring the nose, the chewy, vibrant palate delivers raspberry compote, mature black cherry, cinnamon and star anise along with an earthy hint of game. Firm tannins and fresh acidity keep balanced.

The genial Matteo Ascheri produces wines from various parts of Piedmont, and most of the Barolos come from Serralunga, such as this communal blend. It’s deep in colour, with dense cherry, mocha and liquorice aromas. It’s ripe and concentrated with bold, ripe tannins that give force and persistence. The sumptuous fruit is balanced by ample spiciness and pep. Long.

– 17/20 POINTS

Tasted blind. Mid to deep ruby with bricky rim. Deep, earthy cherry nose with a hint of Moroccan leather. Supple elegant fruit palate with quite a bit of tannin, but well balanced.
