This wine is made from Nebbiolo grapes grown on the slopes of the Barolo wine-making area, which is formed by eleven villages all located on the lower spurs of the Langhe.
Young Barolo is distinguished by its ruby-red colour and by a marked tannin content which gradually gives way through skillful maturing in wood to a soft, velvety, delicate flavour.
"Plum and strawberry on the nose, with hints of raspberry and wood. Medium- to full-bodied, with good fruit, medium tannins and a medium finish. Slightly hollow midpalate. Best after 2009. 16,930 cases made. –JS" -Rated 87, Wine Spectator
"This base Barolo from the folks at Batasiolo (one of the area’s biggest producers) offers a classic view of the Nebbiolo grape. The wine is seeped in traditional aromas of Spanish cedar, pencil shaving, red currant and black licorice. It’s bright and lively in the mouth with crisp acidity and raw fruit flavors. — M.L. (4/1/2009)" -Rated 89, Wine Enthusiast
