Wine Advocate (WA) Review

WA 94
The 1997 Barbaresco Asili has developed stunningly since it was first tasted, a typical characteristic of Giacosa's wines. Surprisingly precocious and evolved for a wine from this estate, it possesses a dark ruby color with an amber edge, and abundant quantities of tobacco, cherry liqueur, incense, spice box, and licorice in its flamboyant nose. It is like candy, fleshy, full-bodied, unctuous, and silky. This seamless classic should drink well young, and last for 12-15 years.-Robert Parker

Wine Spectactor (WS) Review

WS 90
Elegant and subtle, with impressive aromas of ripe berries with hints of licorice. Medium- to full-bodied, with fine tannins and a fresh finish. Best after 2003. 1,230 cases made. –JS
