      Dolcetto d’Alba DOC 2017

      Shiny dark ruby red. Creamy bouquet with delicate hints of dark chocolate and black cherry. Consistent taste with delicate typical bitter notes, black fruits again and a wonderfully fresh knitted fabric of acid and tannin. A perfect and inexpensive introduction to the great wines of Roagna! SUPERIORE.DE

      "Pure and elegant, yet not without structure. Rose, cherry and strawberry flavors are accented by light toast and graphite notes, and the finish is taut and long." Wine Spectator

      "The 2017 Dolcetto d'Alba is absolutely gorgeous for many reasons, including its freshness (so rare in 2017) and super-classic sense of structure. Pliant, silky and supple, the 2017 exudes personality from the very first taste. Lifted aromatics and bright, red-toned fruit are two of the signatures in this deeply expressive Dolcetto. Quite simply, Luca Roagna takes Dolcetto to a new level with his exquisite, beguiling 2017. Readers should expect an especially nervy, classically austere style. Luca Roagna gave his Dolcetto 100 days on the skins, which is virtually unheard of these days, even for Barbaresco and Barolo! Fruit sources are Pajè and Carso." Vinous

      Piedmontese rarity. Rich straw yellow with green reflections. About 5% white pressed Nebbiolo give this Chardonnay the ultimate kick to an extraordinary wine.

    • Rosso Langhe DOC 2014

      Rosso Langhe DOC 2014

      Beautiful Langhe Nebbiolo from Roagnas top Barbaresco locations Pajé and Pira, which gives a good impression of the remarkable style of the winery. Although from vines only about 25 years old, it is a distinctive wine, very old Piedmontese school - with crisp aromas of cherry, tobacco and leather, firm tannin and powerful acidity - and at the end with an inspiring round finish. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Transparent ruby red. Langhe Rosso is a friendly wine with a nose that resembles a stroll through a delicatessen. A richly filled basket of ripe, dark cherries and blackberries, with almonds, nuts and ethereal notes of white pepper and sandalwood overtones. On the palate the aromas of the nose are reflected. It tempts with silky tannin and deep fruit. The fresh acid train determines the cycle number, supported by fully ripe tannins. A Nebbiolo in this segment really rarely comes across as juicy, joyful and multi-layered."  Sebastian Bordthäuser (Sommelier and wine-journalist)

    • Barbera d'Alba DOC 2014

      Barbera d’Alba DOC 2014

      The grapes of this exceptional Barbera come from the Pira vineyard in Castiglione Falletto, where the best Barbaresco in the region usually come from.

      Roagnas Barbera d'Alba is a deep, serious wine with an exuberant bouquet of ripe red fruits, flowers, spices and crushed gravel. On the palate clear and precise red currants, cherries, underlaid with a typical Barbera acidity and medium tannin. In its overall composition, it is one of the most fascinating, elegant and at the same time most classical representatives of its kind and requires all the attention and leisure of the taster - the reward follows the foot.

    • "Derthona" Timorasso Montemarzino 2016

      “Derthona” Timorasso Montemarzino 2016

      If you stumble across a vineyard because of fate, you can go on. Luca Roagna did, however, what he had to do. He inherited this old vineyard, which was completely planted with Timorasso, and since he immediately realised that he wanted to do something useful with it, and he was not familiar with this historic grape variety, he asked Walter Massa, who has dedicated himself to this rare variety for decades. And so, after a few years, he succeeded in making a wine out of it that could more than compete with that of his teacher!

      Bright, clear straw yellow. In the nose quince, citrus and a potpourri of yellow fruits. Then on the palate this saltiness paired with a well-dosed wood seasoning. The long maceration period gives this great white wine strength and stamina. Fine astringency is paired with a pressure that gives this wine - paired with well-dosed acidity and always very present fruit - the uniqueness that makes it at least as unique as the great whites of the Loire or Burgundy, even in direct comparison. And yet he carries the individual Roagna handwriting: a style that can be found neither in France nor in other parts of Piedmont. And that really means something, because the white wines of this Italian noble region are getting better every year. SUPERIORE.DE

      "A mix of floral, pine and petrol aromas give way to peach, apple and almond flavors in this harmonious white. Vibrant and supple in texture, with a long, mouthwatering finish." Wine Spectator

      "The 2016 Timorasso Derthona Montemarzino is another compelling white from Luca Roagna. Citrus, floral and savory notes all run through this tightly wound, focused Timorasso from vineyards in Montemarzino." Vinous

    • "Solea" Bianco Langhe DOC 2016

      “Solea” Bianco Langhe DOC 2016

      Solea is a white wine, not only in Piedmont there is no second time. Chardonnay and Nebbiolo (white vinified) - this is Luca Roagna's elegant and independent answer to the great white wines of Burgundy. Herbal bouquet with a smoky note, paired with fine citrus, pear and apple notes. Before you forget to take your nose out of the glass, you should indulge in the palate-filling aromas: Yellow fruits, in addition a tender nut-almond note and tender-creamy tones of the truly refined wood insert let this large white dance on the palate, swing and carry it into a grandiose finish. Impatient people enjoy immediately, wise gourmets put a few bottles in a safe place for a few years. SUPERIORE.DE

      "The 2016 Langhe Solea is a blend of mostly Chardonnay with 20% Nebbiolo (grapes are sourced from the Pira vineyard and are processed off the skins as a white wine). Luca Roagna’s father first made this wine as an experiment in 1988. The two varieties are immediately assembled and fermented as one. In fact, the Chardonnay is harvested at full maturity to add to the pronounced aromatic profile of the wine, and the Nebbiolo is harvested early in order to provide the acidity and crispness. This is a luminous and bright white wine with a very unique and precise aromatic profile—almost exotic I would say—that prizes apricot, preserves lemon, toasted almond and a touch of Moroccan spice." Robert Parker

      "Apple, lemon and spice aromas and flavors are supported by juicy structure in this white. Harmonious, yet piquant and even has light tannins that emerge on the finish." Wine Spectator

      "From Piedmont comes this intriguing white blend of Chardonnay and Nebbiolo, the latter made as a blanc-de-noir. It’s a heady, nutty wine that’s bold in character but has an undercurrent of freshness and salinity. Two years’ aging in old oak barrels bring a richness and caramel note to the tropical fruit freshness creating delicious balance and tension." Decanter

      "The 2016 Solea, a blend of Chardonnay and Nebbiolo (fermented white, with no skin contact) from Roagna's Pira vineyard in Castiglione Falletto remains one of the most distinctive whites in Piedmont. Silky, nuanced and super-expressive, the 2016 is a very pretty white with attractive apple, peach, stone and floral notes. Drink it over the next few years." Vinous

    • Barolo Pira DOCG 2012

      Barolo Pira DOCG 2012

      Bright ruby red with copper reflections. In the nose traces of cherry jam, rose petals and spicy notes of smoked bacon with some black pepper. In the mouth juicy and precise, with polished fruit, traces of salt and fine-pored tannin. Complemented by notes of thyme and wild herbs, this exceptional barolo glides gently into an almost infinite finale. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Rich, sparkling ruby with a fine garnet shimmer. Compact, dense nose, smells of dark roses, raspberries and liquorice, in the background also some saffron. Dense and taut on the palate, shows first very much juicy fruit, opens then with pithy tannin, builds up richly, salty, shows character". Falstaff

      "A fresh-tasting style, boasting cherry, licorice and leather flavors, accented by eucalyptus and tar hints. Balanced and approachable now, yet should integrate more fully in the next two to three years." Wine Spectator

      "The 2012 Barolo Pira is deep, dense and voluptuous, especially for the vintage. There is plenty of Roagna structure, but the tannins are nearly buried by the sheer density of the fruit. Sweet herbs, tobacco, underbrush, menthol and licorice give the Pira a wild, unrestrained side that I personally find hugely appealing. If there is one wine readers should not miss in this set of new releases, the 2012 Pira is it. What a wine!" Antonio Galloni

    • Barbaresco Faset DOCG 2013

      Barbaresco Faset DOCG 2013

      "Ruby red with bright reflections. The nose of the 2013 Faset Barbaresco is delightful with a bouquet of floral notes: Mallow, hibiscus and hollyhock are fruity surrounded by cherries and pickled raspberries and spicy complemented by aromas of black pepper, cedar and juniper berries. The red fruit is accompanied by dark aromas and vegetal notes of blackcurrant and blackberry leaves. Initially of subtle kind in the drink until he pulls out the iron fist in the velvet glove. The gentle opening builds up immense pressure with great inner tension on the middle palate. The extract-sweet fruit of cherries and a fine stone tone of sloe blends with marzipan and noble bitter notes of the ripe tannins, which attest to its additional length. The exemplary use of wood sets the scene for exactly what distinguishes a Barbaresco: Concentration with simultaneous lightness and transparency." Sebastian Bordthäuser (Sommelier and wine-journalist)

      "The Barbaresco Faset makes its debut in the range in 2013. Intense spice and tobacco notes meld into dark red and cherry fruit in this wonderfully open-knit, expressive Barbaresco. Already quite supple, silky and giving, the 2013 will drink well with minimal cellaring. This is a terrific first vintage from Luca Roagna. Today, the Faset gives the impression it will age at a faster pace than is the norm for Roagna, but, as readers know, these wines can also stay at plateaus of maturity for many years. This small half-hectare plot yielded just 2,000 bottles." Antonio Galloni

      "The cherry, floral, leather, earth and tobacco aromas and flavors are beautifully displayed on a lacy texture. Solidly built, with terrific balance and a lingering aftertaste echoing fruit, earth and mineral elements." Wine Spectator

    • Barbaresco Pajé DOCG 2013

      Barbaresco Pajé DOCG 2013

      "Bright ruby red. Pajé 2013 unleashes in striking salvos of raspberries and sour cherries, laurels and walnut shells, its shimmering ethereal top note reminiscent of asphalted roads on the midsummer horizon. Mild spices like carnations, black pepper and dried cherries are a thematically recurring theme like the title melody of a monumental soundtrack. On the palate mercilessly dry with beguiling extract sweetness. Grown on vines over 80 years old, the fruity and spicy notes of the nose are accurately reflected on the palate and are firmly encased in mature, close-meshed tannins like Kevlar. Complex and multi-layered, it flows with a silky feel almost floating over the palate and with its fruity, ethereal aftertaste it appears almost weightless with an extra long aftertaste. Big glasses and time are the weapons of choice." Sebastian Bordthäuser (Sommelier and wine-journalist)

      "The 2013 Barbaresco Pajè will leave readers weak at the knees with its stunning aromatics. Spicebox, cedar, tobacco, licorice and menthol speak to the essence of Pajè. A wine of depth and pedigree, the 2013 has a lot to offer. Orange peel, cinnamon, rose petal and mint add the closing shades of nuance in a deceptively medium-bodied Barbaresco that has plenty of backing structure and tannic clout to age well for many years to come." Antonio Galloni

      "Rich, with developing cherry, licorice, green olive and sandalwood notes up front. Then the dense tannins take over. A lingering hint of spice remains as this stretches out on the finish." Wine Spectator

    About the winemakers
    Roagna
    Piedmont
    Roagna

    Origin, terroir, authenticity. Everyone's talking about it - Luca Roagna and his family live it. For this purpose, they have established a splendid 10-point manifesto. The Roagnas cultivate some of the best sites around Barbaresco and Castiglione di Falletto in Barolo. Some of them since 1880, longer than Barbaresco exists as a wine name. Here are "Vecchie Vigne" actually old vines - up to a hundred years old.

    Pajé, Montefico, Asili, Faset in Barbareso, La Pira, La Rocca in Barolo and, more recently, Albesani e Gallina in Neive are the top sites that make Piedmont lovers' hearts beat faster. The Crichet Pajé with the distinctive label is the absolute top Barbaresco from the best parcels of the Pajé. The name comes from the Piedmontese dialect and means approximately "Hills of good location". It is the heart of the Pajé, only half a hectare small, facing southwest, open to the river Tanaro, whose radiation soothes the hot summers and cold winters. Always streaming with wind and with a strong calcareous marl soil, they are ideal for elegant Nebbiolo.

    The youngest vines in the Crichet Pajé are 60 years old." These precious vineyards are greened and are cultivated organically. No herbicides, no pesticides, no fertilizer. That's what the manifesto says. And you can see that in the vineyards, too. Everything's alive. Especially the beneficial insects: Insects, beetles, caterpillars and of course bees kill many "works" in a natural way. In addition, there is the strict manual selection of physiologically ripe grapes, vineyard by vineyard. In the new cellar there is now also space to extend the individual layers separately. Only with my own yeasts, so "spontaneous"The fermentation starts in the large wooden fermentation stands, which allow a good micro-oxidation but do not give off any toasting. Because these are also points in the manifesto. Point 10 reads: "Pure from the terroir without the influence of oak aromas."

    When the wine is separated from the skins after two to three months, it continues to mature in large round cement tanks. "These tanks come closest to maturing in large bottles." Luca Roagna smiled proudly at his cellar and his "babies". If you work so consistently with old vines, you naturally have less yield. The elegant Roagna wines are therefore rare and in demand. We are pleased to be able to offer you some of them, secure your queen of wines, as Barbaresco is called in Italy. You won't regret it. Not even in twenty years, because that's how long you can forget them in the basement. SUPERIORE.DE
