    Planet Grape Wine Review
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. For this Moscato d'Asti, Moscato grapes are manually harvested the first week of September. This wine can age 2-5 years in bottle.
VinificationAfter destemmed whole berries are cold macerated for 48-hours, the must is cooled & kept up to a month before a second, slow fermentation. When the wine reaches 5.5% ABV, it is bottled with its natural sparkle.
ColorStraw yellow, clear and bright.
NoseIntense, clean aromas of rose, peach, white fruit, apricot, figs and orange flowers.
