Beni di Batasiolo, owned by the Dogliani family, is a winery located in the Langhe area, in Piedmont. In 1978 the Dogliani brothers bought the historic Kiola winery in La Morra, which had been founded in the 1950s and was comprised 7 farms, with vineyards located in the finest Barolo wine-growing areas. With the addition of this major cellar to the family’s own land, the Dogliani became the proprietors of an estate which now consists of nine farms and 264 acres of vineyards, including 150 planted with the most important and celebrated locally-grown variety, the Nebbiolo from which Barolo wine is made. The farms are all located within the prized Barolo wine-growing area: Batasiolo, Morino, Cerequio and Brunate in La Morra; Boscareto and the historical Briccolina in Serralunga d’Alba; Bricco di Vergne and Zonchetta in Barolo; Tantesi and Bussia Bofani in Monforte d’Alba. Deciding to give the property a new name, the Dogliani brothers took their inspiration from the vineyard where the estate headquarters are located. Thus it was that the new winery, set amidst the gentle contours of the Batasiolo vineyard, came to be called “Beni di Batasiolo”. In the old local dialect the word “beni” means a property or estate, and it is this idea of the unbreakable bond existing between the farmer and his vineyard which is encapsulated in the name “Beni di Batasiolo”. All of the Nebbiolo grapes that go into this Barolo are hand harvested in the first half of October. They are macerated with the skins for 12 days in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks. Aging occurs in slavonian oak casks for a minimum of two years and thereafter for at least twelve months in stainless steel tanks. After this period the wine is bottled, where it continues to rest. The bouquet has all the typical aromas of the grape nebbiolo after the aging period provided by the process of production, showing the dried fruit, flowers, spices, sweets, and the typical delicate herbaceous aromas. In the mouth, the perfect balance between tannins, freshness and the alcoholic content, offer truly powerful sensations but absolutely elegant and pleasing. Good intensity and persistence.
