A good wine reveals to the world the soul of its vineyard, evokes its traditions and developments and encapsulates the unique notes of the season that ripened its grapes. Every vintage arouses a different emotion, making it truly unique. The difference is real history, the fragrant lands and the everyday lives of the people. Our ambition is to reflect this difference in our wines.
We take on this challenge with immense passion, crafting wines that conserve the richness of their identity, from the vine to the chalice, wherever they are tasted.
Beni di Batasiolo is the story of the Dogliani family. 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.
In these lands of oblique light and veiled mists, the Dogliani 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.
In 1978, 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.
This is a place where, by tradition, the idea of “beni” takes on tangible value: the vines, the farmsteads, the people living and working there and the evocative landscape of soft, rolling hills and orderly vineyards.
This is the experience the wines of the Langhe have always offered the world.
Our vines prosper in nine precious vineyards, which —through their particular orientation, the form of the hills and the type of soil—spontaneously create the ideal conditions for producing noble, elegant wines.
Among these, Cerequio, Bussia, Brunate, Briccolina and Boscareto are the “cru” that produce the most excellent and highly prized Barolo. In harmony with the land, we renew our commitment daily to allowing nature to best express her essence, giving ample space to the vines and ensuring that the quality of the wine always comes before the quantity.
Beni di Batasiolo today is a big family in which new professions converge under the guidance of a united passion. We are a fermentation of tradition and modernity in constant search of new synergy with nature: the best technological innovation for monitoring and analysis allows us to intervene only when necessary and to give due care to every aspect that contributes to creating wines of the utmost quality.
Here, grapes from all the vineyards arrive and begin the meticulous course that leads them to a new life. They then reach the silence of the barrel cellar, where the wines are entrusted to time—just enough to crystallise their purest essence.
Wine production has always been one of the most fascinating examples of cooperation between humankind and nature. It is a responsibility that our expert Oenologists Oreste Dogliani and Paolo Pronzato know well and which is based on two crucial values: knowledge, meaning experience rooted in time, and marked sensitivity, meaning the personal flair that is part dedication and part instinct.
A team work in which in every step is completed with accuracy, leading up to the tastings that become key moments of comparison indispensable to ensure that our wines reach the tables all over the world in the most perfect and genuine form.
…you are hill and stony path and play in the reeds,
and know the vineyards silent by night
– Cesare Pavese
