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. Batasiolo's 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 Barolo DOCG is a bold, intense expression of the Nebbiolo grape.
VinificationNebbiolo grapes are picked from all five of Beni di Batasiolo’s Cru vineyards in early October and fermented on their skins for 10-12 days in stainless steel vats with periodic pumping over. The juice is then aged in Slavonian oak casks for 24 months followed by an additional 12 months in stainless steel.
