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
