Wine Enthusiast 92 points - The 2005 vintage was a hot one, and this offers aromas of ripe fruit and savory spice, and the intensity is not overdone by any means. In fact, it shows elegance and restraint, with a thick, succulent quality to the firm tannins.

Ideal in combination with dishes based on red meats, game, roasts and cheeses and cured meats. Dedicated to lovers of wines especially round and velvety. Pleasant as wine of meditation.
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”.
The real essence of “Beni di Batasiolo” cannot be understood without admiring the expanses of its vineyards in the finest and most important wine-growing villages of the Langhe. 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”.
Batasiolo, the wine cellar which besides having all its vineyards in the heart of the Langhe, a land known above-all for its great reds, produces all the most celebrated wines grown in this region, including Barolo, Barbaresco, Barbera d’Alba Sovrana and Dolcetto d’Alba Bricco di Vergne, as well as great whites such as Moscato d’Asti Bosc dla Rei, Langhe Chardonnay Morino and Gavi del Comune di Gavi. This magnificent range is completed by the elegant Batasiolo Metodo Classico millesime and the exclusive Moscato Passito Muscatel Tardi.
Barolo is the emblem of the cellar’s production, its real piece de resistance, and Beni di Batasiolo is proud to present as many as four different Cru grown on the privileged hills of Barolo, Monforte, Serralunga and La Morra: Barolo Bussia Vigneto Bofani, Barolo Boscareto, Barolo Cerequio, Barolo Brunate, and the winner of many awards, Barolo Briccolina.
