The Povero family has roots in Piedmont since 1837. Grandfather Tumlin’s precious heritage has been carried forward by the Povero brothers as expressed in this beautiful Barbaresco called Batu. The Batù was a congregation of people quite famous in the village until 80 years ago. The Batù group followed religious (catholic) processions blessing people with wooden sticks. They were not priests or monks, but common people with a kind of “magical” / spiritual power. As they were not monks, they usually met for prayers and meditation outside churches: it was common to find them “meditating” into local taverns sharing a big bottle of wine.
