Lapo was born in Tuscany and has Australian residency. For the last 20 years he has worked through Italy, Australia, Burgundy, California and New Zealand. Starting at Selvapiana before setting off on his itinerant path; with stints at Roberto Voerzio (Barolo), Nicolas Potel, then Michel Picard (Burgundy), and numerous other stops between seasons, before settling in La Morra as Enzo Boglietti’s winemaker.
Here, Lapo has miraculously found vineyard to lease in the prized MGAs* of Fossati and Le Coste with lighter soils on Bricco Rocca. The land is organically farmed with care to create a balanced, natural habitat. Similarly, his approach to winemaking is a gentle as possible, using natural yeasts and old oak without fining or filtration.
