2013 Ca’ del Baio Barbaresco Asili


Located in Barbaresco in the Northern Italian region of Piedmont, Ca’ del Baio is going from strength to strength with each passing vintage. The wines continue to over deliver, with the Nebbiolo grape the focus this wines are worth exploring across the range.

The Asili Cru is arguably the greatest vineyard in the Barbaresco region, and this classic example shows the depth and structure that you would expect from a wine of this level, again a great example of Nebbiolo.


Style - Complex and intense, serious red wine

Tell me about the grape - Nebbiolo

One of the two greatest Italian red grape varieties, the other being Sangiovese. Nebbiolo is an iron fist in a velvet glove, it can look pale in the glass, but aromas of sour cherry, leather, spice, earth, and dried flowers are common. The structure of the wine shows grippy tannins and mouth-watering acidity.

Serving suggestion - 16-18*C, decant an hour before

Cellaring potential - 10+ years (worth decanting an hour before drinking)

Food matching - Lamb ragu with pappardelle

You may like this if you drink - Chianti Classico, Brunello di Montalcino or Gran Reserva Rioja
