Eugenio Bocchino Barolo Lu 2006

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

AWE blind tasting - sour nose, stinky nose, fleshy nose, very nice nettle notes in the background, really penetrating and pure with a note of heavily used and sweaty work glove, spice, earth fennel and tea, fine balance in the mouth, ripe sour cherry, lovely backing notes of dried herb, citrus tones, real energy here without being noticeably acidic, elegant, real harmony in the mouth, fresh zesty finish, with ripe tannins, a bit short but still a very strong showing 91-92

Eugenio Bocchino:
Living in the Langhe, working our vineyards is a great priviledge. This land, these hills, the climate and the authoctonous vines make up a unique and extraordinarily beautiful environment: We aim to respect and interpret this context, making wines that are better and better every year.

Living in the Langhe, working our vineyards is a great priviledge. This land, these hills, the climate and the authoctonous vines make up a unique and extraordinarily beautiful environment: We aim to respect and interpret this context, making wines that are better and better every year. Azienda Agricola Eugenio Bocchino is, and will always be, a small family business. We have 5.5 hectares of vineyards in seven vineyards in the Communes of La Morra, Verduno, Roddi and Alba. We produce two different lines of wines: The first is an absolute search for excellence, with three Barolos (including two "Crus" from La Morra, "La Serra" and "Plucotti" will be released in 2008), the Nebbiolo La Perucca and the classic Piemontese blend Suo di Giacomo (Nebbiolo and Barbera). Our second range of wines is aimed at reaching the optimum balance between quality, typicity and price, with three classic Langhe wines: Nebbiolo d'Alba, Barbera d'Alba, Dolcetto d'Alba. Total production is around 22.000 bottles per year. Read less

AWE blind tasting - nice refreshing balsamic scents, intense pine needle, ripe fruit, fur, amazing Christmas tree tone, much less interesting in the mouth, loose, without focus, some nice fruit and a touch of the balsamic character found on the nose but mostly a stripped flaccid wine, nice fruit re emerges on the finish, so maybe it will fill in, 87-88 for the nose, 83-84 total
