Here is a wine with a long and promising future ahead. The 2013 Barbaresco Riserva Asili is a Nebbiolo that boasts the tannic tightness, acidity and compact fruit flavors you look for when assessing a wine’s potential for cellar longevity. This vintage delivers encouraging results on all fronts. The mouthfeel is firm, compact and ready to loosen with time. The bouquet is both generous and dramatic with dark fruit followed by spice, smoke and an attractive mineral footprint. The finish is dry and almost salty, thanks to those lingering tones of brimstone and pencil shaving. The 2013 growing season saw a late harvest, and this helped to achieve full tannic and flavor ripeness. Hold off from drinking this wine for at least 5 years but preferably more.

Produttori del Barbaresco is about to break a record. It looks very likely that this important co-operative estate will be making its single-vineyard Riserva wines five years in a row. The wines were made in 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016 and I’m told there is a 90% probability they will be made in 2017. Never have those wines been produced in five back-to-back vintages. The previous record saw them produced three years in a row in 2007, 2008 and 2009 and before that in 1999, 2000 and 2001. This important estate has been making the cru selections since 1978 and the house philosophy is to make them all, or not make them at all. General Manager Aldo Vacca says the co-operative counts 54 members, of which four joined the group within the past three years. Produttori del Barbaresco counts a total of 100 hectares (for an average annual bottle production of 500,000). Each individual farm is very small in size. In terms of winemaking, all Riservas are made in precisely the same way. Fermenting grapes see up to five weeks of skin contact with frequent pump-overs to break the caps during the first couple of weeks. That long maceration time finishes slowly until the wine is separated from the skins. It rests in both stainless steel and cement until malolactic fermentations are complete. During the winter cold in February, the wine undergoes a natural cold stabilization (Nebbiolo loses some of its color here as a result) and is later transferred to 25- and 55-hectoliter botte for three years. Two rackings are completed during this time, with more frequent topping offs. No refining occurs. These Riserva expressions usually see nine months of bottle aging before their commercial release, but times have been shortened to meet market demand. Below is a list of the correct order in which I tasted the single-vineyard wines, starting with the lightest expressions and ending with the most powerful and structured: 1. 2013 Barbaresco Riserva Pora 2. 2013 Barbaresco Riserva Pajè 3. 2013 Barbaresco Riserva Ovello 4. 2013 Barbaresco Riserva Rio Sordo 5. 2013 Barbaresco Riserva Asili 6. 2013 Barbaresco Riserva Rabajà 7. 2013 Barbaresco Riserva Muncagota 8. 2013 Barbaresco Riserva Montefico 9. 2013 Barbaresco Riserva Montestefano
