Beni di Batasiolo Barolo Vigneto Corda Della Briccolina 2009

External Review:

The top Barolo from Batasiolo's historic "Single Vineyard" Corda della Briccolina. Beni di Batasiolo owns nearly 240 acres, which makes the house one of the largest landowners in the Langhe. Beni di Batasiolos historic "Single Vineyard" La Corda della Briccolina is 1000-1200 feet above sea level on a steep slope facing south. The field is located at the village of Monforte d'Alba and south of the town of Alba. The vines have an average age of 30 years and are planted at a density of 3,700 per. ha. The fermentation takes place at a low controlled temperature that preserves the fruit and grapes precious lovely spice in the final wine. When the fermentation is over, the wine is aged for 24 months in small French oak barrels before it is bottled. Wine Spectator scored it 95 points saying "An alluring red, this offers perfumed aromas of flowers, cherry and tar followed by juicy cherry, raspberry, licorice and spice flavors. Flesh covers the structure well, but could benefit from aging. Best from 2014 through 2030. 750 cases made."

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
