2018 Batasiolo Barbera Sovrana
2018 Batasiolo Barbera Sovrana Those looking for fine and aromatic red wine have come to the right place with this Barbera Sovrana. It is a wine known for its softness and ripe character. The scent of this Barbera d’Alba DOC shows raspberry, red currant cherry and a light spicy undertone. And it offers even more: flavors such as black fruit, beautiful spices and a hint of vanilla and toast. The color of the wine shimmers in medium cherry red. Thanks to the twelve months in barrel, this wine became wonderfully round and took on delicate roasted aromas.
Beni di Batasiolo is the story of the Dogliani family. The family has lived the world of wine for five generations in Italy’s Langhe district, whose vineyards have contributed immensely to making Italian wines famous the world over.
In these lands of oblique light and veiled mists, the Dogliani family has lived through the many changes in the recent history of these fields, which perhaps have seen more transformations in the last fifty years than over the centuries before.
In 1978, the Dogliani family purchased the historic Kiola winery with its seven “beni,” or “estate,” in the internationally renowned zone for growing the celebrated Nebbiolo da Barolo grape.
This is a place where, by tradition, the idea of “beni” takes on tangible value: the vines, the farmsteads, the people living and working there and the evocative landscape of soft, rolling hills and orderly vineyards. This is the experience the wines of the Langhe have always offered the world.
