The vineyards of Batasiolo lie nestled in rural northern
Italy in the heart of Piedmont, famed home of Barolo
wines. The original nine vineyards encircle the winery
like an amphitheater: the complete estate comprises nearly
250 acres, making it one of the leading farms in Piedmont.

Barolos, reflects the age-old truth: wine is made with
skillful, loving care in the winery, but it is created
in the vineyard.
Maturation for the Nebbiolo grapes takes place in the
traditional Slavonian oak casks for two years, with a
third year of aging in the bottle prior to release.

full-bodied and intense, with notes of spices and dried

and a velvety elegance. Ideally put this one to bed for
about a decade, but if patience is not your forte, decant
and enjoy with the “Basque Lamb Stew” from our Wines
