Beni di Batasiolo Barolo Brunate 2009
Save $80.01 (44%)
Deep garnet red with orange tinges. Intense aromas of nuts, stewed prunes, roses and violets, with notes of spice and toast. Full-bodied, tannic and balanced. Pairs well with red meats, game, roasts, cheeses and cured meats, as well as delightful sipped on its own.
Fresh and focused for the vintage, with bright acidity guiding cherry, raspberry, licorice and spice flavors. Balanced and firm, with fine length. This has plenty of life ahead. Best from 2017 through 2028. 1,160 cases made, 200 cases imported.
Here is a terrific wine from Beni di Batasiolo based in La Morra. The 2009 Barolo Brunate is one of the nicest wines I have yet to taste from this medium to large-sized winery. The wine shows rich texture that is woven tight with dark fruit and savory spice. There is volume and dimension here. This is a complete and age-worthy wine. Some 13,000 bottles were produced.
