Eugenio Bocchino - Langhe Nebbiolo La Perucca 2016
Region: Langhe / Nebbiolo (near Barberseco)
You can really see the Barberesco terroir influence in this wine. Aromas of ripe cherry, roses, tar and kitchen herbs. Very pretty. Fine and elegant despite the depth of tannin with fine acidity and balanced fruit. Excellent wine, especially for the price.
“La Perucca” is located close to Barbaresco in the Alba comune and is the first vineyard that Eugenio and Cinzia planted. Depending on the vintage, it spends thirty months in large oak barrels and one to two years in bottle before release.
