With the 2010 vintage, the list of the Additional Geographical Definitions of the “Barolo” denomination is made official.
This is an important step because, from this date on, the so-called “sub-regions” will be defined in their number and in their bounded extension. In particular, there are 170 sub-regions and 11 denominations by municipality.
Among these, in the municipality of La Morra there is also the sub-region Ascheri , where our family originated and from which it draws its name.
For this reason, from the vintage 2010 onwards , we produce 4 different Barolo made from 4 different selections of territory.
In particular Barolo Pisapola from Verduno, Barolo Sorano from Serralunga , Barolo Coste&Bricco from a selection of two vineyards in Sorano and Barolo Ascheri from La Morra, which was fermented separately for the first time in the vintage 2010, and that,like to other 3 selections will be produced only in exceptional vintages, so approximately 3/4 every 10.
This wine has an intense garnet red colour with a rich bouquet of ripe fruit, candied fruit, sweet tobacco and spices. Its tannins are elegant and perfectly integrated in order to express a refined power.
