Barolo DOCG Riserva, Beni Batasiolo, 2012
14.5% ABV - 75cl Bottle
The Batasiolo Estate vineyards are located within the prized Barolo wine-growing areas.
Destemming and fermentation with maceration on the skins for 10-12 days in stainless steel vats at controlled temperature and with periodic pumping-over.
Aged in Slavonian oak casks for at least eighteen months followed by ageing in stainless steel vats. Refining continues in the bottle after this time.
The Barolo Riserva is intense red to garnet colour with orange highlights. Aromatic range that favours the aromas with strong tendencies towards maturity, jams, dried fruit, toasted, floral of rose and violet and good maturity.
Soft notes to the palate, good alcohol and a harmonious set of tannins and freshness, finishing pleasant with feelings of completeness, characteristic tar and full body.
Ideal in combination with dishes of red meats, game, roasts and cheeses and cured meats. Particularly appreciated by fans of full-bodied, smooth wine. Excellent also as sipping wine.
