Wine Advocate 90 points - The 2009 Barbaresco Asij is a beautiful, fragrant wine with a little more depth and polish than is typically the case. Layers of fruit flow through to an effortless, gracious finish laced with a hint of French oak. This supple, juicy Barbaresco is best suited for drinking over the next few years. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2019. (Oct 2012)
Good intensity and persistence on the nose, with hints of withered flowers. Well-balanced taste, with good acidity. Excellent after 4 to 10 years whatever the vintage, and up to 15/20 years in outstanding vintages.
