tasting notes

The Ascheri Barolo Pisapola comes from the commune of Verduno in the La Morra area. It is his smallest production Barolo. The soils here, coupled with the relatively high altitude of the Pisapola site, give a forward-fruit style of Barolo. Ascheri vinifies to accentuate this quality, and his Pisapola Barolo is notable for its expressive, fresh and vivid floral and dark berry aromas and flavors. He uses a pneumatic press so as to not extract harsh tannins. Similarly, during the fermentation and maceration period, the juice is regularly circulated over the solids and there is no punching down of the cap. The Barolo Pisapola has an lush texture and soft, silky tannins which underpin this opulent wine. The ripe fruit gives the sensation of sweetness, making the Pisapola the most accessible of the Ascheri Barolos.
