Cellar for up to 10 years. Serve chilled.

Batar is considered one of Italy’s finest white wines with famous wine critic Jancis Robinson even describing it as reminiscent of “a particularly successful Corton-Charlemagne”. Yet despite the comparison to the very best white Burgundies, Batar is unmistakably Tuscan at heart with a distinctive minerality and elegance courtesy of Querciabella’s high altitude Ruffoli vineyards.

The cuvee is composed of Chardonnay and Pinot Bianco fruit which is grown organically and biodynamically, and selected by hand to ensure only perfect grapes are used for Batar. Once in the winery the fruit is pressed and fermented in French oak barrels with nine months of ageing before bottling. In a typical year just 15,000 bottles of this iconic wine are produced, most of which are quickly snapped up by collectors and wine lovers across the globe.

Acacia flowers, chamomile, smoked almonds and delicate ripe peach notes dominate on the nose, while the palate offers a silky smooth texture, well-rounded mouthfeel, and balancing freshness on the long finish. Batar’s complexity and intensity means it can easily be cellared for at least another decade following the vintage, or enjoyed now alongside truffle-based pasta dishes, herby roast chicken, or roasted root vegetables.
