Beni di Batasiolo Barolo 2013

External Review:

Deep ruby-garnet red that turns brick red with age. The bouquest is ethereal and intense, with notes of spices and dried fruits and offers great finesse to the nose and palate. Dry, full-bodied, imposing, elegant, austere but velvety.

Almost a crypt, where the ancient alchemy of transforming must into fine wines is celebrated. The sanctum sanctorum in which the grapes are selected by master vintners, who then heed the boiling of the fermentation in huge oak casks. The destination of the harvests of large estates, where the grapes were delivered once upon a time on carts drawn by horned oxen, whereas now they arrive for pressing only a short time after they have been picked. The winery as it was, with the old oak casks lined up imperiously along faintly-lit corridors. The winery as it is today, adjusted to the needs of an ever more demanding and selective market, in which quality is an unforgoable constant, a pre-requisite for a flawless, stable, homogeneous product. This means state-of-the-art equipment, and access to the most appropriate technologies. The new look, which stands alongside the old rather than in its place, is one of shiny steel, and electronically-controlled, automatic processes. Past and future living together in a dynamic, efficient present capable of taking on the toughest competition in the acquisition of new markets. Read less

[Pesto, tomatoes, pasta] Not decanted, drank over an hour. Ruby in color. Aromas of herbs, tobacco, plum. On the palate, tobacco and plum. Strong minerality. Mild tannins. Smooth. Its lighter body made me think more of barbaresco then barolo, but nice either way. Does not need decanting. Drink now.
