Product Overview

Ca' del Baio is a family run winery, Giulio, his wife and 3 young daughters, the fourth generation. The name of the winery comes from Baio which translates in that type of workhorse with large and hairy hoofs. Ca' stands for house, the house of horses, since in the old days it used to be a horse stable. They have been making great progress in the last 6/7 years as they find their own voice and steer away from the trends of the moment (barriques, extraction, color). Their wines are now the epitome of elegance, favoring the subtle character of Nebbiolo rather than power and muscle. Each cru has its own distinct character: Asili, stern and regal with impressively forward aromatics.

The estate's 2005 Barbaresco Asili opens with a beguiling profile of dried roses, spices and raspberries. It possesses a compelling inner sweetness supported by finessed, silky-textured tannins. This bottling offers notable elegance and class, but then again, it is Asili. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2020.-Antonio Galloni
