Meet the Winemaker (Episode 85): Fiorenzo Dogliani, Batasiolo

Owned by the Dogliani family, the Batasiolo winery, is located in the district of La Morra in Italy’s famous Barolo region. The family, who have been making wines for three generations, named their winery after the place, Batasiolo where the winery was built. They focus on making Piedmontese wines, namely Barbera, Docletto, Barolo, Gavi di Gavi and Sartore.

The family own nine estates with a total of 120 hectares of vineyards, in addition to a beautiful 5 star hotel and restaurant in Serralunga. According to Fiorenzo Dogliani, the unique soil in La Morra with less limestone and the special altitude and temperature makes his wines elegant and easy to drink. Today Bastasiolo wines are exported to 53 countries around the world, including to Asia where they have been exporting wines for the past 15 years.

    Seems like you understand Italian, Debra, and you say La Morra with the proper lilt….useful to hear about a Barolo that doesn’t peel your gums off at age 3….
