Renato Ratti Battaglioni d'Asti

Renato Ratti Battaglioni d'Asti 2015

Piedmont, ItalyCured meats, smoked branch, dark cherry and peppery notes throughout this youthful and approachable barbera from Asti. Renato Ratti also bottles a Battaglioni DOC from Alba, which would be fun to taste alongside (for geeks like me). This is a plush and round black fruited wine, destemmed and crushed, with soft tannins, cranberry brightness and primary black fruit, coming from time in stainless before one year in older oak barrel. A medicinal-cherry line carries throughout. Ready to drink now with grilled ribs or wild mushroom laden braised chicken thighs.Tasted: 02 March 2017Tasted by: Treve RingPrices: BC 27.00 estimated retail Producer: Renato RattiDistributors: Enoteca Bacco
