Batàr is undeniably one of Italy's most iconic white wines. Hugh Johnson once described it as "a dream of a white" worth comparing with a Burgundy Grand Cru. The bouquet of the Batàr is aromatic with acacia flowers, chamomile, yellow peach and melon. Tropical fruit repeats on the palate that is elegant, lush and balanced by freshness. The finish is long and mineral driven.
