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

      "The Ascheri 2018 Langhe Nebbiolo S. Giacomo offers a generous and fruit-forward expression of Nebbiolo. This is an accessible and versatile expression that would pair with grilled mushrooms or your favorite roasted chicken dish. The purity of the grape comes through with dried berry aromas, light spice, licorice and some earthy backend notes as well. The wine offers a compact, mid-weight mouthfeel. Fruit comes from a location in La Morra that remains just outside the official Barolo production zone." 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 2016 (blue label)

      Barolo DOCG 2016 (blue label)

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

      "Tasted blind. Mid to deep ruby with bricky rim. Deep, earthy cherry nose with a hint of Moroccan leather. Supple elegant fruit palate with quite a bit of tannin, but well balanced." Jancis Robinson

      "The genial Matteo Ascheri produces wines from various parts of Piedmont, and most of the Barolos come from Serralunga, such as this communal blend. It's deep in colour, with dense cherry, mocha and liquorice aromas. It's ripe and concentrated with bold, ripe tannins that give force and persistence. The sumptuous fruit is balanced by ample spiciness and pep. Long." Decanter

      "Intensely fragrant, this has enticing aromas of graphite, chopped mint, forest berry and new leather that practically leap out of the glass. Mirroring the nose, the chewy, vibrant palate delivers raspberry compote, mature black cherry, cinnamon and star anise along with an earthy hint of game. Firm tannins and fresh acidity keep balanced." Wine Enthusiast

      "The Ascheri 2016 Barolo delivers a classic interpretation of the Nebbiolo grape, albeit with a plump and fruit-forward slant. The wine opens to dried cherries and blackberries with balanced background tones of spice, tar, leather and ash. These ethereal tones add to the elegance and depth of the wine. The character of this Barolo is dark and solid, making for an ideal medium to long-term proposition. When the wine is ready to drink five years or more down the line, I'd suggest a pairing with a heavier pasta dishes or risotto with wild porcini mushrooms." 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. On the palate it shines with a freshness, intensity and an exciting potpourri of teriyaki spice, smoke, again cherry and notes of smoked meat.

    • Barolo "Pisapola" DOCG 2016

      Barolo “Pisapola” DOCG 2016

      Pisapola, from the vineyard of the same name in the municipality of Verduno, offers a wonderful richness of texture and an impressive softness. This wine is open and honest, with an accessible style that highlights red cherries, undergrowth, wild berries and roses in a very harmonious way. The tannins are precisely measured, and in the finish its harmony and balance is once again captivating. No show-off of strength, but it shows the charming and authentic character and elegance of this great Nebbiolo vineyard. 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 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

    About the winemakers
    Ascheri
    Piedmont
    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
