Reviews and Ratings

Wineboy rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

I think I like my Barolo the old way. This one is more modern - and more people in the tasting room preferred this style. Heavier level of fruit with a more earthy leather and licorice aromas/flavours. However it missed the floral notes. Tannins were a touch more approachable than the old style making this a good Barolo for most consumers. I'd enjoy it but still dream of times gone by.
Beni Di Batasiolo Riserva 2008 is a full-bodied, Barolo from the Piedmont wine region made from 100% Nebbiolo wine grapes. On the nose, there are dried rose petals, cherry and earthy fresh mushrooms. On the palate, there is dried fruit, ripe cherry, raspberry and cold tea flavours on the palate. Great acidity on this Barolo. Decant and pair with a grilled Tomahawk steak. - Community Wine Reviews
