BATASIOLO BAROLO CEREQUIO
The Batasiolo Estate has vineyards holdings located within the prized Barolo wine-growing areas: Batasiolo, Morino, Cerequio and Brunate in La Morra; Boscareto and the historical Briccolina in Serralunga d’Alba; Bricco di Vergne and Zonchetta in Barolo; Tantesi and Bussia Bofani in Monforte d’Alba.
Set amidst the gentle contours of the Batasiolo vineyard, the Estate cannot be understood without admiring the expanses of its vineyards in the finest and most important wine-growing villages of the Langhe.
Batasiolo, the wine cellar which besides having all its vineyards in the heart of the Langhe, a land known above-all for its great reds, produces all the most celebrated wines grown in this region, including Barolo, Barbaresco, Barbera d’Alba Sovrana and Dolcetto d’Alba Bricco di Vergne, as well as great whites such as Moscato d’Asti Bosc dla Rei, Langhe Chardonnay Morino and Gavi del Comune di Gavi. This magnificent range is completed by the elegant Batasiolo Metodo Classico millésimé and the exclusive Moscato Passito Muscatel Tardì.
Barolo is the emblem of the cellar’s production, its real pièce de résistance, and Beni di Batasiolo is proud to present as many as four different Cru grown on the privileged hills of Barolo, Monforte, Serralunga and La Morra: Barolo Bussia Vigneto Bofani, Barolo Boscareto, Barolo Cerequio, Barolo Brunate, and the winner of many awards, Barolo Briccolina.
The Cerequio is intense garnet red color with delicate orange highlights. The “nose” of the Cerequio, unmistakable and unique, presents balsamic notes, plants, floral and spicy notes. Memories of incense, wax, tobacco and coffee blend magically with delicacy. Palate of great persistence, full, elegant, harmonious and balanced.

The 2010 Barolo Cerequio is a focused and streamlined wine that offers tight structural firmness and good persistence. This wine shows a fine and elegant side of the Cerequio cru; it has moderate intensity but lasting flavors nonetheless. This wine could be consumed now with roasted meat topped with truffle, or you could put it aside in your cellar for a few more years.
