James Suckling, 96 Points 

"A clear and transparent Asili with floral, sage, crushed-stone, mushroom and berry aromas that follow through to a full body with round tannins that are a little aggressive, but in a good way. Crunchy and fresh at the end. Citrusy undertones. Savory. Better in a year or two." 

Wine Advocate, 95 Points 

"The Produttori del Barbaresco 2017 Barbaresco Riserva Asili is distinguished by its extremely linear and direct approach with wild rose, cassis and lots of mineral or crushed stone. The wine is taut and fresh on the palate with a medium-lean texture and lots of depth and persistence. I love those bright rose petal-like nuances on the close of this wine, and the tannins are firm and silky. This bottle boasts a unique identity in this group of Riservas." 

Vinous, 95 Points 

"The 2017 Barbaresco Riserva Asili is a real stand out. It captures all the sensuality of the year while retaining the translucence and freshness of Nebbiolo. Rose petal, crushed red berry fruit, cinnamon and spice develop with a bit of coaxing. This is another gorgeous wine from the Produttori. Asili is widely regarded as one of the best vineyards in Barbaresco, maybe the best. This wine shows why." 

Wine Spectator, 95 Points 

"Packs a winning combination of ripe black cherry, blackberry and plum fruit, with tar, iron, eucalyptus and tobacco accents. Delivering a rich, densely tannic texture, this is powerful and resonant, with plenty of energy on the long, vibrant aftertaste. Balanced, yet begs for patience. Best from 2027 through 2045." 

Wine & Spirits, 95 Points 

"Like all of Produttori’s single-cru Riservas, Asili spends three years in large oak barrels then ages for several months in bottle. This 2017 is dense and powerful, its violet-scented blackcherry flavors gripped by meaty tannins, packed with notes of thyme, lavender and licorice. It gains depth with time in the glass, a firmly-structured wine that will benefit from cellaring."
