Beni di Batasiolo is the story of the Dogliani family. The story started in 1978 when the Dogliani family purchased the historic Kiola winery with its seven “beni,” or “estate,” in the internationally renowned zone for growing the celebrated Nebbiolo da Barolo grape. The family has lived the world of wine for five generations in Italy’s Langhe district, whose vineyards have contributed immensely to making Italian wines famous the world over. The family has lived through the many changes in the recent history of these fields, which perhaps have seen more transformations in the last fifty years than over the centuries before.
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 millésimé and the exclusive Moscato Passito Muscatel Tardì.
