Beni di Batasiolo Bofani, Barolo DOCG 2009, Italy
PRESS: Wine Advocate - 90 points. "Beni di Batasiolo has delivered some very nice results in the 2009 vintage, and these wines are just about to enter their drinking window. The 2009 Barolo Bussia Vigneto Bofani shows a slightly sweet nose with ripe berry aromas followed by spice, licorice and toasted Spanish cedar. The mouthfeel offers firm structure with drying tannins at the back. This wine stands out for that structure."
