Our family produced wine before this year and it was always considered to be a unique wine with a long history about an important wine and period in time.
The name Asili (Asei) is derived from the local dialect, which historically were used to name each parcel of land. Pajé 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.
