The wine has been named after the son of Maria Grazia (Luca). She works alongside Carlo, her dad, and Luca, her son.

100% Nebbiolo from three vineyards located in the Asili, Cole and Ovello crus in Barbaresco on a total of 1.55 hectares in the beautiful Piedmont region of Italy.
In the winery, traditional methods are supported by modern technology, allowing for fermentation in steel at a controlled temperature, appropriate maturing in small barrels or large casks, and the reduction of sulphites to around a third of the legal limit.

This red gem has been aged 30 months in small French oak barrels. Afterwards 12 months on bottle.
In the glass a deep dark and garnet color.
On the nose intense aromas of dark berries, rose petal, liquorice with hints of spices, vanilla and cinnamon.
On the palate full-bodied, dry and well balanced with complex flavours of dark cherries, earth, dried flowers, tobacco and coffee.
Great acidity and fine grained tannins. Showing potential for more years aging.
