Winemaker's Notes

Wine Advocate The estates barrel-aged 2005 Batar (65% Chardonnay and 35% Pinot Blanc) is consistently one of Italys finest whites. The 2005 presents attractive suggestions of jasmine peaches and sweet tropical fruit on a medium-bodied frame buttressed by a lively note of minerality. While the 2005 is not one of the more opulent Batars it is nonetheless a very finessed wine that is sure to find many admirers. Anticipated maturity: 2007-2017 Score: 90. Antonio Galloni June 2007. Wine Spectator Fresh apple flower and light toffee aromas follow through to a full body with a round texture and a long read more...rich finish. There's loads of fruit and character yet this is refined. Pinot Bianco and Chardonnay. Drink now. 1500 cases made. Score: 90.
