2022 Renato Ratti 'Battaglione' Barbera d'Asti
Winemaker Notes: Intense, Cardinal red with sparkling tonalities on the Renato Ratti Barbera d'Asti. Resolute bouquet, with trace scents of ripe plum and an undercurrent of mixed spices. Full flavor with long persistence. Rich in body and in color, warm and robust, pleasantly tart when young, a wine suited to our hearty local dishes as well as refined meat dishes and aged cheeses.
Wine Enthusiast - "Barbera hits it on all levels with aromas of plum, mixed berries in all their forms, from fresh to preserved, wildflowers and dried herbs. The palate is fresh and pops with tart red fruits that then give way to savory and earthy notes as the wine develops in the glass. It has ample structure, with a texture that makes it a very versatile food wine that goes with everything from veggies and fish to grilled meats. Maze Row Wine Merchant."
James Suckling - "Notes of crushed red and blue berries with orange peel, cocoa and red flowers. A juicy and vibrant barbera with ripe but crunchy dark fruit and polished texture. Medium-bodied. Racy and flavorful finish."
