Product Description

This is one of the most important red wines in Italy. It is made from Nebbiolo grapes grown on the hills of the area of Barbaresco located on the right of the river Tanaro. The fermentation on the skins in steel tanks in the Batasiolo winery is followed with great attention for its duration of around 10 days, after which the wine is aged for a minimum of one year in oak casks, followed by a further year in the bottle.

Details

Varietal: Nebbiolo

Region: Barbaresco

Region Description:

This robust red wine made from the Nebbiolo grape in the Piedmont region of Italy is full bodied, high in tannins, acidity, and alcohol. Aromas are suggestive of tar, violets, roses, strawberries, even truffles. Very similar to, if a little less full-bodied than, Barolo, it traditionally needs to be aged for at least three years in the winery (five years if it is a Reserva), but benefits from additional aging. More recent vintages are fruitier in flavor, often a bit oaky, and may be ready to drink as soon as two to five years after release.
