tasting notes

The Ascheri Barolo DOCG is blend of about equal amounts of Nebbiolo grapes selected from the estate’s vineyards in La Morra and Serralunga. Fermentation occurs over a period of over 40 days. It is then aged in tanks for 6 months; followed by 2 years in 3000 litre oak casks; and then 4 months in tank before bottling in the 2nd summer after harvest; and finally 10 months in bottle before release. As it meant to be enjoyed young, the complex range of Barolo Nebbiolo flavors are already accessible: licorice and spice-nuanced back cherry and raspberry fruit, scents of truffles, with minerally earth tones with a generous, texture. It pairs wonderfully with grilled meats, game, robust pastas, and full flavored cheeses. The Barolo DOCG is a perfect introduction to the estate’s single vineyard Barolos.
