Beni di Batasiolo, Barolo DOCG, La Morra, Piemonte, Italia, 2011, 14.5% abv.

This winery, owned by the Dogliani family for the past five generations, has vineyards in four regions of Piemonte – La Morra, Barolo, Monforte d’Alba and Serralunga d’Alba.10276346t

The Batasiolo vineyard where the Nebbiolo grapes for this wine are from is located on the eastern edge of La Morra, close to famous Castiglione Falletto.

This Barolo is medium ruby and has deep legs with classic aromas of sour cherry, dried rose, truffle and tar with light tobacco.

The palate is dry with high acidity and velvety, light tannins.  Flavours show more rose petal, plum, tar, leather, and sweet tobacco.

Nuanced and elegant, layered and balanced.

WSET Very Good.
