2016 Eugenio Bocchino Lu Barolo
Named after Eugenio and Cinzia’s daughter, Lucia, “Lu” comes from a selection of their best grappoli from their vineyard at 300m above sea level in Santa Maria in La Morra.
The vineyard is south-east facing and rich in clay and limestone. The grapes are carefully de-stemmed and macerated with the cap for about thirty days before ageing for two years in old botti. Followed by six to twelve months in concrete vats before resting in bottle for an additional year before release. The only Barolo Eugenio and Cinzia produce. Bright Nebbiolo with ruby colour. Ripe red fruit, eucalyptus, rosemary and sweet spices. A complex and refined palate with lingering acidity and solid tannin structure.
