94 points ""Clean and focused. Wonderfully perfumed, with blackberry, raspberry and a hint of strawberry. Full-bodied, with ultrafine tannins and a long, long finish. Very beautiful and vivid for a young Nebbiolo. The best Asili from Ceretto ever. Best after 2012."(12/07) " Best 2012-

94 points ""The 2004 Barbaresco Bricco Asili is the most beautiful wine I have tasted from Ceretto in a long time. The expression of fruit is wonderfully layered, and is enhanced by the smoke, vanilla and sweet toasted oak flavors that flow from the glass. The wine reveals stunning length and sweet, silky tannins that round out the finish. The use of oak is prominent and obscures some of the detail, but this is nevertheless a gorgeous effort from Ceretto. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2022" (10/07) " Best 2012-2022

92 points ""Good medium red. Crushed raw red berries, rose petal, brown spices and minerals on the slightly reduced, sappy nose. Densely packed and tangy, with a peppery spice character contributing energy to the wine's sweet berry fruit and lingering impressively on the aftertaste. A step up in depth over the Bernadot, with more stuffing to buffer its oak and tannins. This will evolve slowly." (Nov/Dec '07)"
