Wine Advocate 89 points - Beni di Batasiolo’s 2013 Barolo opens to a lean garnet appearance with dark copper highlights. This wine delivers good depth and dimension with a firm sense of structure at the back. That backbone supports a pretty flavor profile that includes wild berry, cola, licorice and grilled rosemary. This is a steady and clean Barolo from a very happy vintage. Production is very large with 350,000 bottles made..Monica Larner, August/2017
James Suckling 91 points - The aromas of dried berries and citrus follow through to a medium body, a dense center palate and very fine tannins. Polished and pretty. Better in 2020..February/2017

It is appreciated in conjunction with dishes of red meats, game, roasts and cheeses and cured meats. In the philosophy of Batasiolo, this Barolo has all the credentials to be considered not only the wine for special occasions, but a nice complement to the refind gastronomic cuisine and grand social occasions. SERVING TEMPERATURE 18°-20°C
The color is deep garnet red. The bouquet has all the typical aromas of the grape nebbiolo after the aging period provided by the process of production, showing the dried fruit, flowers, spices, sweets, and the typical delicate herbaceous aromas. In the mouth, the perfect balance between tannins, freshness and the alcoholic content, offer truly powerful sensations but absolutely elegant and pleasing. Good intensity and persistence put this wine one of the best expressions of the Lang
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.
