Asili is a prestigious and historic Added Geographical Indication of the Barbaresco Docg, a designation which has made vinification possible in only four municipal districts in Langhe: Alba, Barbaresco, Neive and Treiso.

A majestic and ample cru, which turns 360° around the eponymous hamlet.  The first label with the name Asili goes back to 1967. The excellent exposure and the calcareous clay soils, rich in microelements, give the wines produced here a great complexity, their delicate and silky finish: the “quintessence of refinement'.
