Giacomo Ascheri 2013 (Italy: Piemonte)

Name Giacomo Ascheri 2013
Varietal Barolo (DOCG)
Region Italy: Piemonte
Notes "A combination of spicy cherry and berry fruit, leather, tar and sanguine iron flavors mark this firmly structured red. Shows plenty of grip as well as bright acidity, with leather and mineral accents on the finish. Best from 2019 through 2033." (Wine Spectator) " Attractive aromas of blackberry, mushroom and rose petal follow through to a medium to full body, medium chewy tannins and a tangy aftertaste. Lively and delicious. Drink now." (James Suckling)

Additional Notes

" Violet, red berry, dark spice and a whiff of camphor come together on this vibrant red. The elegant savory palate doles out juicy red cherry, crushed raspberry, baking spice and truffle while lithe tannins provide elegant support. It's balanced, with fresh acidity. Already approachable, it also offers good midterm aging. Drink through 2023. *Editors' Choice*" (Wine Enthusiast)
