Batasiolo Barolo Cerequio DOCG
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.
With fruit from La Morra, the Beni di Batasiolo 2016 Barolo Cerequio (with 13,000 bottles made) reveals dried berry fruit, blackcurrant, dusty clay and licorice. All these classic Nebbiolo aromas are enhanced by some faint mineral or iron-like tones. The wine finishes on a dry note, with some added tannic structure and astringency, so you're best off giving it just a little more time.
