BackgroundBeni di Batasiolo is the largest family-owned wine producer in Italy's Piedmont region. Since 1978, the winery has grown to encompass over 320 acres of vineyards. The Dogliani family works with the land and allows nature to ensure their wines' quality comes first. Batasiolos vines prosper across nine beni or estates - in Piedmont. The estates' soil, climate and position among the hills produce a range of noble, elegant wines. Batasiolo's Barbaresco DOCG is made from Nebbiolo grapes aged 12 months in Slavonian and French oak, followed by an additional 12 months in stainless steel.
VinificationNebbiolo grapes are destemmed and fermented on their skins for 10-12 days in stainless steel vats with periodic pumping over. The juice is aged 12 months in oak and an additional 12 months in stainless steel.
