Dan Trcka Wine Blogger rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

The 2006 Ascheri Barolo Pisapola is a light bodied, integrated wine with nice aromas or dried red fruit, rose and liquorice. Tannins are refined (decant for 30 min) and the finish is medium to long. Drink now or cellar for the next 5 or so years, but don't expect much of improvement. My impression: NICE, 89 pts - quite pricey for what it is. There are currently available cheaper Nebbiolos of better quality. Tasted Jan/12.




Natalie's Review

Ascheri Vigna Dei Pola Barolo Nebbiolo (Barolo, Barbaresio) 2006, D.O.C.G., Italy: Vintages Wine Panel: The fruit for this wine was sourced from two of Ascheri's finest vineyards: Pisapola and Verduno. These vineyards have reputations for yielding Barolos with finesse and fruitiness. Look for aromas of strawberry, blueberry, rose petals and new leather. Fashioned in the “new school” style, this wine will mature much sooner than is typical of some Barolos. Give it a year or two further in the bottle, and then enjoy it over the next ten years. My note: Holy furry tannins Bat Man! Some cellar time and decanting will help this palate whacker. Black as night with tarry, dark fruit, smoke aromas. Drink: 2013-2020. 576743 14.50% XD 750 mL  $43.95 Score: 90/100. November 26, 2011  Full Review
