Lu | Eugenio Bocchino

Named after Eugenio and Cinzia’s daughter, Lucia, this wine comes from old vines in a tiny parcel planted in 1968. It’s released 4 years after the harvest, after spending two years in cask, one year in cement and one year in bottle. Full of savoury fruit, spices, elegant tannins, this is a superb Barolo that is approachable at a young age but also has huge potential for ageing.
