      Elegant Nebbiolo from the Langhe, not hyper-concentrated, but endowed with a wonderful clarity: Fine, warm, harmonious, with ripe fruit and aromas of dark berries, herbs and vanilla. Racy, persistent finish with well-proportioned, fresh acidity and firm tannin. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Sometimes you need simplicity in your wine from Italy's Piedmont, and this bottle delivers exactly that. The Ascheri 2019 Langhe Nebbiolo S. Giacomo, a blend of Nebbiolo with 15% Syrah, is fresh and fruity. Bright cassis fruit and cherry segue to blue flower and a touch of raw licorice root. There are no extra bells or whistles on this genuine and honest wine to enjoy with a simple focaccia and speck." Robert Parker

In the drink very fresh, lively dancing, with a nice mineral-salty note and fresh, full fruit. This red wine is just as much fun with hearty grilled dishes as it is on the terrace in the evening sun.

    • Barolo DOCG 2017 (blue label)

      Barolo DOCG 2017 (blue label)

      The Nebbiolo grapes of Matteo's entry-level Barolo come from his three vineyards Serralunga d'Alba, La Morra and Verduno. Bright garnet red. Precisely balanced bouquet of wild berries, rose petals and beautiful herbal spice. On the palate, bright acidity, perfectly integrated tannins and a beautifully developed primary fruit. Already very accessible when young, it will nevertheless increase in complexity with the years. Excellent value! SUPERIORE.DE

      "This Barolo represents a blend of fruit from Serralunga d'Alba, La Morra and Verduno, so you get a bit of structure, freshness and floral intensity, all in that order. The Ascheri 2017 Barolo is a dark and sultry expression with dark cherry and plum, followed by tilled earth and light spice. That characteristic 2017 tannin does come through, and you are best off giving this wine more time to age. Because Matteo Ascheri skipped over his cru expression in 2017 (Sorano, Coste & Bricco, Ascheri and Pisapola), you'll find that fruit blended in this wine instead." Robert Parker

What is also special about him is that he does not stereotypically join the ranks of the well-known big Syrah from California, France and Australia - quite the contrary.

      Here opens a balsamic drop with an intense bouquet of cherry, rosemary and traces of ginger.

    • Barolo "Pisapola" DOCG 2016

      Barolo “Pisapola” DOCG 2016

      Pisapola, from the vineyard of the same name in the municipality of Verduno, offers a beautiful richness of texture and an impressive softness. This wine is open and honest, with an approachable style that highlights red cherries, undergrowth, wild berries and roses in a very harmonious way. The tannin is precisely measured, and on the finish its harmony and balance again delight. Not a powerhouse, it highlights the character and elegance of this great Nebbiolo site all the more amiably and authentically. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Tasted blind. Mid ruby with orange tinges. Compact and still-subdued nose with a hint of Moroccan leather. Supple and generous palate that is not yet entirely open. Polished, chewy tannins tasting of liquorice. Long but needs more time in the bottle to reveal its hidden depths." Jancis Robinson

      "The 2016 Barolo Pisapola is the most airy and perfumed of the wines in this range. Crushed flowers, mint, cedar sweet pipe tobacco and red berry fruit all grace this finely-knit, mid-weight Barolo. The 2016 is understated, classy and very pretty." Vinous

      "The Ascheri 2016 Barolo Pisapola is the most immediate and accessible of the single-vineyard series of wines offered by Matteo Ascheri, and this makes perfect sense given the younger, geologically speaking, Tortonian marl and Messinian calcareous clays of the site. The Pisapola cru is located in Verduno, and the wine reveals a looser, thinner texture that is characteristic of this subzone. The bouquet is subtle and elegant, although the wine's overall intensity clocks in at a lower threshold compared to some of the better-known comuni or villages of the Barolo appellation. It delivers a mild structure and a silky close." Robert Parker

      "Rose, forest-berry, underbrush and new leather aromas shape the elegant nose. The savory palate mirrors the nose, featuring ripe Marasca cherry, licorice, menthol and a mineral note evoking rusty nail. Taut, fine-grained tannins and fresh acidity provide support while a hint of game signals the close." Wine Enthusiast

    • Barolo "Sorano" DOCG 2016

      Barolo “Sorano” DOCG 2016

      Matteo's classic from the municipality of Serralunga d'Alba. Sorano shows exactly the weight and strength that we associate with this unique subzone of Barolo. The strong side of Nebbiolo is the focus here, the freshness of the fruit recedes nobly, yet noticeably into the background. Aromas of dried blackberries, ploughed earth, tobacco and crushed rock. Gripping tannins on the finish require a longer aeration, and with further aging in the bottle, lovers of strong Barolo will be in their element. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Matteo Ascheri favors short, hot fermentations, adding an immediate layer of power and intensity that you feel right off the bat, especially in a classic vintage such as this. His 2016 Barolo Sorano definitely shows the darker color and thicker flavor concentration that comes with fruit grown in Serralunga d'Alba. The wine's bouquet is generous and rich with red rose petal, licorice, tar and smoky road asphalt. As is to be expected, the tannins are more prominent in the Barolo Sorano, with a pinch of tightness that needs a few extra years of bottle aging to soften. What really drives this wine forward is the quality and the contained intensity of the 2016 fruit. It's a classic for sure, although patience is required." Robert Parker

      "Earthy and loaded with personality, this full-bodied red has aromas of camphor, new leather, game and ripe black-skinned fruit. On the concentrated palate, chewy tannins accompany fleshy Marasca cherry, crushed raspberry, truffle and tobacco." Wine Enthusiast

    • Barolo "Ascheri" DOCG 2016

      Barolo “Ascheri” DOCG 2016

      Matteo describes it as a wine that has as much to do with the place as with its family roots: coincidentally, his surname Ascheri is also the official name of the vineyard located in the municipality of La Morra. For this top wine of the house, as for the Coste & Bricco, the following applies: Barolo Ascheri is only produced in the best years.

      Its bouquet and also its complex taste make it the most complete wine of the house. Wonderful in precision and structure, this Barolo has the highest recognition value in this top vintage and at the same time represents the signature of the house in an impressive way. SUPERIORE.DE

      "New leather, camphor, wild berry and fragrant blue-flower aromas mingle together on this structured red. It's full bodied and dense, delivering succulent morello cherry, crushed raspberry licorice and tobacco framed in firm, fine-grained tannins. You'll also detect the warmth of evident alcohol, but thanks to the concentrated fruit, it doesn't dominate." Wine Enthusiast

      "The Ascheri 2016 Barolo Ascheri is a beautiful wine that reveals a broad range of classic Nebbiolo aromas. The wine's bouquet is stirring and deep with cleverly contained intensity. As I mentioned before, the Ascheri winemaking process sees a short 16-day fermentation, at 30 degrees Celsius in the case of this wine. As a result, the aromas are clear, strong and direct. You could apply any number of descriptors to describe the bouquet: dried cherry fruit, rose, pressed violets, crushed stone, red clay and autumnal leaf. The wine is well supported at the back by firm tannins that come thanks to this classic, cellar-worthy vintage." Robert Parker

      Barolo “Coste & Bricco” DOCG 2016

      We are overjoyed that we were able to obtain some wooden boxes of this extremely rare and only in the very best vintages produced drop. It is not for nothing that he leads the exclusive selection of Matteo's "collectible wines".

      Sparkling ruby grenade. Clearly defined, fine nose with pronounced notes of raspberry and plum, with thyme in the background. Very polished and delicate on the nose, the aroma is incredibly complex with notes of wild berries, cherries, spices and herbs. On the palate with a firm pressure, yet very juicy and in the finish with an elegance and potential that is second to none. Whoever does not let this already almost perfect wine mature in the cellar for another five or more years will miss a lot! SUPERIORE.DE

      "This is the top-shelf wine from Matteo Ascheri and also the wine with the smallest production numbers, with just 2,800 bottles made. Fruit comes from two parcels in the Sorano cru of Serralunga d'Alba: the Vigna Coste and the Vigna Bricco. The 2016 Barolo Coste & Bricco is indeed profound and compelling, thanks to its very elegant and powerful DNA. This wine sneaks up on the senses with mounting intensity that starts off with red fruit and wild berries and eventually transitions to white licorice, ash, smoke and pretty mineral nuances. The wine is focused and bright with abundant Nebbiolo typicity. Fermentation is short at just two weeks, and the wine ages in 18-hectoliter new and used oak for 22 months. I see that the prices of Ascheri's wines seem to reflect availability; however, the quality is excellent, making this bottle ever more precious." Robert Parker

      Intense straw yellow. Complex bouquet with aromas of apricot, white peach, violet and lavender.

      Matteo Ascheri shows a fascination for the grape varieties of the Rhône valley and produces every year in extremely small quantities a pure Syrah of the extra class. What is also special about him is that he does not stereotypically join the ranks of the well-known big Syrah from California, France and Australia - quite the contrary.

      Here opens a balsamic drop with an intense bouquet of cherry, rosemary and traces of ginger. On the palate it shines with a freshness, intensity and an exciting potpourri of teriyaki spice, smoke, again cherry and notes of smoked meat. Its impressive texture and a full, long finish make this Syrah experience unforgettable! SUPERIORE.DE

    • Barolo "Pisapola" DOCG 2016 <br>6 Bottles in OWC

      Barolo “Pisapola” DOCG 2016 · 6 Bottles in OWC

      Pisapola, from the vineyard of the same name in the municipality of Verduno, offers a beautiful richness of texture and an impressive softness. This wine is open and honest, with an approachable style that highlights red cherries, undergrowth, wild berries and roses in a very harmonious way. The tannin is precisely measured, and on the finish its harmony and balance again delight. Not a powerhouse, it highlights the character and elegance of this great Nebbiolo site all the more amiably and authentically. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Tasted blind. Mid ruby with orange tinges. Compact and still-subdued nose with a hint of Moroccan leather. Supple and generous palate that is not yet entirely open. Polished, chewy tannins tasting of liquorice. Long but needs more time in the bottle to reveal its hidden depths." Jancis Robinson

      "The 2016 Barolo Pisapola is the most airy and perfumed of the wines in this range. Crushed flowers, mint, cedar sweet pipe tobacco and red berry fruit all grace this finely-knit, mid-weight Barolo. The 2016 is understated, classy and very pretty." Vinous

      "The Ascheri 2016 Barolo Pisapola is the most immediate and accessible of the single-vineyard series of wines offered by Matteo Ascheri, and this makes perfect sense given the younger, geologically speaking, Tortonian marl and Messinian calcareous clays of the site. The Pisapola cru is located in Verduno, and the wine reveals a looser, thinner texture that is characteristic of this subzone. The bouquet is subtle and elegant, although the wine's overall intensity clocks in at a lower threshold compared to some of the better-known comuni or villages of the Barolo appellation. It delivers a mild structure and a silky close." Robert Parker

      "Rose, forest-berry, underbrush and new leather aromas shape the elegant nose. The savory palate mirrors the nose, featuring ripe Marasca cherry, licorice, menthol and a mineral note evoking rusty nail. Taut, fine-grained tannins and fresh acidity provide support while a hint of game signals the close." Wine Enthusiast

    • Barolo "Sorano" DOCG 2016 <br>6 Bottles in OWC

      Barolo “Sorano” DOCG 2016 · 6 Bottles in OWC

      Matteo's classic from the municipality of Serralunga d'Alba. Sorano shows exactly the weight and strength that we associate with this unique subzone of Barolo. The strong side of Nebbiolo is the focus here, the freshness of the fruit recedes nobly, yet noticeably into the background. Aromas of dried blackberries, ploughed earth, tobacco and crushed rock. Gripping tannins on the finish require a longer aeration, and with further aging in the bottle, lovers of strong Barolo will be in their element. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Matteo Ascheri favors short, hot fermentations, adding an immediate layer of power and intensity that you feel right off the bat, especially in a classic vintage such as this. His 2016 Barolo Sorano definitely shows the darker color and thicker flavor concentration that comes with fruit grown in Serralunga d'Alba. The wine's bouquet is generous and rich with red rose petal, licorice, tar and smoky road asphalt. As is to be expected, the tannins are more prominent in the Barolo Sorano, with a pinch of tightness that needs a few extra years of bottle aging to soften. What really drives this wine forward is the quality and the contained intensity of the 2016 fruit. It's a classic for sure, although patience is required." Robert Parker

      "Earthy and loaded with personality, this full-bodied red has aromas of camphor, new leather, game and ripe black-skinned fruit. On the concentrated palate, chewy tannins accompany fleshy Marasca cherry, crushed raspberry, truffle and tobacco." Wine Enthusiast

      Barolo “Ascheri” DOCG 2016 · 6 Bottles in OWC

      Matteo describes it as a wine that has as much to do with the place as with its family roots: coincidentally, his surname Ascheri is also the official name of the vineyard located in the municipality of La Morra. For this top wine of the house, as for the Coste & Bricco, the following applies: Barolo Ascheri is only produced in the best years.

      Its bouquet and also its complex taste make it the most complete wine of the house. Wonderful in precision and structure, this Barolo has the highest recognition value in this top vintage and at the same time represents the signature of the house in an impressive way. SUPERIORE.DE

      "New leather, camphor, wild berry and fragrant blue-flower aromas mingle together on this structured red. It's full bodied and dense, delivering succulent morello cherry, crushed raspberry licorice and tobacco framed in firm, fine-grained tannins. You'll also detect the warmth of evident alcohol, but thanks to the concentrated fruit, it doesn't dominate." Wine Enthusiast

      "The Ascheri 2016 Barolo Ascheri is a beautiful wine that reveals a broad range of classic Nebbiolo aromas. The wine's bouquet is stirring and deep with cleverly contained intensity. As I mentioned before, the Ascheri winemaking process sees a short 16-day fermentation, at 30 degrees Celsius in the case of this wine. As a result, the aromas are clear, strong and direct. You could apply any number of descriptors to describe the bouquet: dried cherry fruit, rose, pressed violets, crushed stone, red clay and autumnal leaf. The wine is well supported at the back by firm tannins that come thanks to this classic, cellar-worthy vintage." Robert Parker

      We are overjoyed that we were able to obtain some wooden boxes of this extremely rare and only in the very best vintages produced drop. It is not for nothing that he leads the exclusive selection of Matteo's "collectible wines".

      Sparkling ruby grenade. Clearly defined, fine nose with pronounced notes of raspberry and plum, with thyme in the background. Very polished and delicate on the nose, the aroma is incredibly complex with notes of wild berries, cherries, spices and herbs. On the palate with a firm pressure, yet very juicy and in the finish with an elegance and potential that is second to none. Whoever does not let this already almost perfect wine mature in the cellar for another five or more years will miss a lot! SUPERIORE.DE

      "This is the top-shelf wine from Matteo Ascheri and also the wine with the smallest production numbers, with just 2,800 bottles made. Fruit comes from two parcels in the Sorano cru of Serralunga d'Alba: the Vigna Coste and the Vigna Bricco. The 2016 Barolo Coste & Bricco is indeed profound and compelling, thanks to its very elegant and powerful DNA. This wine sneaks up on the senses with mounting intensity that starts off with red fruit and wild berries and eventually transitions to white licorice, ash, smoke and pretty mineral nuances.

    About the winemakersAscheriPiedmont
    Ascheri

    The Ascheri winery is without doubt one of the best wine producers in Piedmont because of its outstanding wines. This place in the top league is no coincidence: through a natural, precise working method with selected clones of grape varieties, which thrive in the best vineyard sites in the region, Matteo Ascheri brings out the maximum expression potential of the Piedmontese terroir in his wines.

    Today Ascheri Vini has three wineries: Podere di Rivalta in La Morra-Verduno, Podere di Sorano in Serralunga and Podere di Montalupa near Bra. The very high-quality portfolio includes a Metodo Classico sparkling wine and typical white wines of Piedmont such as Arneis, Moscato d'Asti and Gavi. The red wines are limited to the great Piedmontese classics such as the Langhe Nebbiolo, Barbera, Dolcetto and of course Barolo. This extensive selection is characterised by elegance and finesse and has over the years made a good name for itself with many international wine critics.

    The Nebbiolo vines in Serralunga d'Alba grow in a soil that has both sandstone and limestone. At 280-350 m above sea level, in a perfect south-south-west exposure, Barolo Sorano and Barolo Coste & Bricco are produced, recognizable by their blue capsule. Wines with a red capsule are in turn produced at the Rivalta winery, which has excellent sites in the communes of La Morra and Verduno and processes a wide variety of grape varieties such as Barbera, Dolcetto and Nebbiolo.

    While in the classic Barolo DOCG area the emphasis is on tradition, in the Roero area the guiding principle is innovation, because the winery in Bra has a completely different philosophy. A wide variety of white and red grape varieties thrive on the sandy seabed on the Montalupa hill. The orientation between tradition and modernity means that the wines are primarily aged in large barrels and barriques are largely avoided.

    Matteo Ascheri is the sixth generation of his family to cultivate the best sites around the municipalities of Bra, La Morra and Serralunga d'Alba. He is assisted by the oenologist Giuliano Bedino and the agronomist Edoardo Monticelli, who have been familiar with the area for years and ultimately produce individual wines in a largely traditional style, which, depending on the vineyard location, produce the best interpretation of the area.

    The wine production process has remained the same since the estate was founded in 1880: The freshly harvested grapes should retain their typical characteristics. The use of technological methods and the influence of wood are therefore limited as much as possible in order to express the vineyard, the grape variety and the philosophy of the traditional winery as clearly as possible in the bottle.

    Matteo Ascheri explains in an interview: "I have the ambition to produce natural wines whose concentration, quality, balance and elegance correspond to the particular vineyard. Our task is not only to produce great wines in optimal vintages - which can be very simple in relative terms - but to produce good wines from difficult vintages, which is extremely complicated. SUPERIORE.DE
