The 2017 Barbera d'Asti Battaglione opens to an inky dark appearance with blackish and purplish highlights. This is a super exuberant and abundant red wine that offers lovely pleasure and opulence. The wine is succulent and mouthwatering. It screams for lasagna or cheese-filled ravioli as a hearty pasta pairing partner. This wine offers a dark, chewy and rich quality of fruit. Battaglione marches to its own, very upbeat rhythm. With 70,000 bottles made, you get great value here.
