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.
VinificationCortese grapes from limestone, clay and marl soils within the Gavi commune are destemmed and soft pressed. The juice is then fermented in stainless steel vats at 16-18˚C (60.8-64.4˚F) with time on the lees.
