(from a 0.22-hectare parcel of vines in the heart of the cru, according to Roagna), Moderately saturated medium red. Knockout perfume combines raspberry, underbrush and truffle, with pungent floral and mineral elements and classic Asili spice providing lift. Not especially dark or alcoholic but juicy and perfumed in the mouth, offering outstanding mineral definition and cut. Finishes with terrific length, suave tannins and excellent lift. A beautiful Asili.
