Producer
After the move, Matteo Cavaleri's house became La Morra in Bra in 1880, where it is still today. Classically producing "Piedmontese" reds, their lists also included Gavi, Brachetto and Vermouth along with "Barolino Chinato" and "Gran Vino Barolo". In 1994, some of the old cellars were cleverly used by the Ascheri family, who opened l'Osteria Muri vecchi, an ideal meeting place where you can truly enjoy traditional cuisine and local wines and turn them into cultural, social and fun experiences. Today, the winery is run by the current president of the Barolo appellation, Matteo Ascheri.  
Tasting notes

Upon tasting, the Ascheri Barolo 2019 Rosso unfolds with a complex array of aromas, including ripe red fruits, notably cherries and plums, interwoven with floral notes of violets, and enriched by undertones of leather, tobacco, and a hint of truffle. The palate is met with a robust structure, marked by velvety tannins and a vibrant acidity that leads to a lengthy, nuanced finish, showcasing the depth and finesse characteristic of premium Barolo wines. This vintage illustrates the harmonious integration of fruit, terroir, and oak, offering a wine that is both approachable in its youth yet capable of graceful evolution over time.

Pairing

The Ascheri Barolo DOCG 2019 Rosso is particularly well-suited for pairing with rich, savory dishes such as braised lamb shank, beef stew, or wild boar ragù, where the wine’s substantial body and complex flavors can complement the intensity of the dish. Additionally, it pairs beautifully with aged hard cheeses, offering a delightful contrast in textures and flavors, enhancing the dining experience through the interplay of the wine’s structure and the cheese’s mature character.

Nebbiolo wines tipically have rich, but elegant tannins, high acidity and unic scent – often characterized as "roses and tar". After a few years of vintage, most Nebbiolo wines begin fading from intensive ruby to a glorious brick orange color and developing flavors of mushroom, moss, leather and black pepper.
Barolo wines are the best Nebbiolo can offer - they are luxurious and sophisticated. At young age these wines show uncontrollable temper with sharp and high tannins and almost searing acidity, though already noticeable aromas of violets, red currant and licorice. With age the wine bouquet acquires the wealth and fullness deprived in its youth as the taste becomes more rounded, adding peppery tones and shades of red berries, but the aromas are replaced by flavors of tobacco, leather and tar. Barolo wines are worth saving for important occasions - they are excellent even after 20 years of aging.
