Renato Ratti Barbera d'Alba Battaglione 2013
Color is intense, cardinal red with sparkling hues. Forward bouquet with hints of ripe plum and an undercurrent of mixed spices. Full flavor with long persistence. The typical acidity and delicate texture makes this wine elegant and harmonious. A wine suited to Renato Ratti's hearty local dishes, as well as refined meat dishes or aged cheese.
Located halfway up the hill dominating the principal valley of Barolo, buttressed by steep slopes lined by orderly vineyards, lies a precious jewel from the 15th century: the Abbey of Annunziata. As the monks historically produced wine from the grapes of the surrounding hillsides, today, remembering their lessons, incomparable wines are produced. From the 100 acres of vineyards, the Renato Ratti winery produces around 150,000 bottles from the traditional denominations of the area: Barolo, Nebbiolo d'Alba, Barbera d'Alba, Dolcetto d'Alba.
