"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." - Producer Note
