The color is deep garnet red. It has intense and persistent aromas of ripe fruit, flowers and spices with delicate flavors of the wood. Its main characteristic is married to the typical aromas of the nebbiolo creating a feeling of rare elegance. Its power, elegance and charm, give fullness to the palate and great intensity. All the notes in the nose are enhanced harmonically and make it a wine to remember. Food Pairings: Ideal in combination with dishes based on red meats, game, roasts and cheeses and cured meats. It is a pleasant wine for meditation moments.

Wine EnthusiastThis flagship wine from Batasiolo comes from a southwest-facing vineyard in Serralunga d'Alba. It is already developing a brick-red color and soft, velvety tannins. Flavors of pomegranates and black plums give it a sweet-and-sour character, leaving balancing acidity to finish.
