Well done Fabrizio! A well-deserved award.
Fabrizio's full entry in the guide reads as follows:
"Fabrizio Battglino's small winery seems to have returned for good among the top producers of Roero. The vineyards are at Vezza d'Alba, on the steep sloping hills of Colla and Mombello, where soils are sandy and face south at an altitude of 350 metres above sea level. The classic variieties of Roero are grown, Arneis, Nebbiolo and Barbera, and tradition is interpreted to craft a series of technically flawless wines full of delicious fruit, carefully designed for delightful drinkability."
New entries for this year include:
2010 Roero Sergentin - Due Bicchieri (entered in the finals)
2011 Roero Arneis - Due Bicchieri (especially good value)
