The name Asili (Asei) is derived from the local dialect, which historically were used to name each parcel of land. Asili is one of the historic vineyards of the village of Barbaresco and it located in the Southern portion of the area planted to vines.

Asili is particularly rich in limestone and marl mixed with strands of reddish yellow sands. Our parcel covers an area of 0.22 Hectare (0.54 Acre). Giovanni Roagna purchased the land in 1961 and it is located exactly in the middle of the hill.

The vines for this wine have a minimum age of 50 years, thus considered old vines, and are regenerated using the massale wood system by pruning the vines within the same vineyard.

The harvest takes place in October by hand usually in the morning once the fruit has reached perfect ripeness. Before being made into wine we manually select each berry in order to have perfect fruit.
Fermentation takes place exclusively in large wood casks thanks to a pied de cuve created from our indigenous yeasts. This lasts for ten days and then we use the ancient technique of maceration by splinting the submerged cap process which lasts for at least two and a half months, (70- 90 days).
The wine is then aged in a neutral oak barrel for approximately 5 years.

The production of bottles is extremely limited, often only about one thousand bottles per vintage.
