      Bianco Langhe DOC 2018

      Piedmontese rarity. Deep straw yellow with green reflections. About 10% white Nebbiolo gives this Chardonnay the ultimate kick to an extraordinary wine. Herbal spice, finely bound wood and delicate smoky notes enveloped by a citrus scent and paired with well-dosed acidity round off the powerful but still highly elegant experience. Great storage potential - this wine gets better every year and is one of our absolute favourites in the Roagna entry level! SUPERIORE.DE

    • 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 2017

      “Solea” Bianco Langhe DOC 2017

      Solea is a white wine, which is not only in Piedmont no second time. Chardonnay and Nebbiolo (white vinified) - this is from the hand of Luca Roagna an 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 the nose out of the glass, you should indulge in the palate filling aromas: Yellow fruits, along with a delicate nut-almond note and delicate creamy tones of the truly refined wood insert make this great white dance on the palate, swinging and carrying it into a terrific finish. Impatient ones enjoy immediately, clever connoisseurs put a few bottles in a safe place for a few years. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Roagna's 2017 Solea is a blend of Chardonnay and Nebbiolo vinified off the skins. Pliant and supple, with terrific depth, the Solea is dominated by varietal Chardonnay notes of tropical fruit, vanillin and butter. More than that, though, the 2017 is impeccably balanced and flat-out delicious. Even though the Nebbiolo portion is done without skin contact, the wine has a good deal of grip." Vinous

      "This is a fascinating wine made with mostly Chardonnay (75%) and a smaller part Nebbiolo fermented off the skins as a white wine. Both grapes come from the Pira cru in Castiglione Falletto. The Roagna 2017 Langhe Solea opens to a bright off-gold color with warm-vintage aromas of ripe peach, cantaloupe melon and preserved lemon. There are some sweet aromas of candied almond and butterscotch as well. This is a mid-weight wine with extra tannic grip and power thanks to the Nebbiolo in the blend. You'd do well to pair it with a fatty fish such as salmon or grilled swordfish steak." Robert Parker

    • Barbaresco Pajé DOCG 2015

      Barbaresco Pajé DOCG 2015

      Roagna's Barbaresco Paje already has a great need to communicate in its youth and shows itself open-minded and with multi-layered aromas, full-bodied and in harmonious balance. An extraordinary pleasure for the next 20 years. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Bright ruby red. Pajé discharges in unerring volleys of raspberries and sour cherries as well as laurels and walnut shells, its shimmering ethereal top note reminiscent of asphalted roads on the midsummer horizon. Mild spices like cloves, black pepper and dried cherries are a recurring thematic theme equal to the theme tune of a monumental soundtrack. Mercilessly dry on the palate with beguiling extract sweetness. Grown on vines over 80 years old, the fruit and spice notes of the nose are accurately reflected on the palate and are firmly coated like Kevlar by ripe, tightly woven tannins. Complex and layered, it flows across the palate with a silky feel, almost floating, and its fruity, ethereal finish seems almost weightless with an extra-long finish. Large glasses and time are the weapons of choice." Sebastian Bordthäuser (Sommelier und Wein-Journalist)

      "The 2015 Barbaresco Pajè is the most nuanced and complete of the four wines in this lower tier of vineyard designates. Deceptively light in body, the 2015 possesses striking complexity and dimensions. Breadth and power are implied more than overtly stated. Clean, minerally notes punctuate the finish. The Pajè packs a serious punch. It will be even better in another few years' time. This is just classic Roagna and the wine in this range that offers the best value. I loved it." Vinous

      "Balsamic notes of camphor meld with ripe dark-skinned cherry, leather and dark spice. Delicious and loaded with personality, the enveloping palate doles out juicy black cherry, raspberry jam and star anise alongside earthy hints of truffle and game. Tightly knit, fine-grained tannins provide the framework." Wine Enthusiast

      "Mulled cherry, plum and spice flavors are shaded by rose, mineral and tar in this nimble yet powerful red, which gains intensity as it builds to a lingering aftertaste of dried fruit, mineral and spice. Offers superb energy and length." Wine Spectator

    • Barbaresco Faset DOCG 2015

      Barbaresco Faset DOCG 2015

      "Ruby red with bright reflections. The nose delights with a bouquet of floral notes: Mallow, hibiscus and hollyhocks are fruity surrounded by cherries and preserved raspberries and spicy complemented by aromas of black pepper, cedar and juniper berries. The red fruit is underpinned by dark aromatics and vegetal notes of blackcurrant and blackberry leaves. Initial on the nose of subtle nature until it brings out the iron fist in the velvet glove. The gentle attack quietly builds immense pressure with great inner tension on the mid palate. The extract-sweet fruit of cherries and fine core notes of sloes mingle 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 und Wein-Journalist)

      "The 2015 Barbaresco Faset is powerful and wild in the glass. Next to some of the other wines in the range, the Faset is a bit unruly, but that ultimately adds to its character. Spice, leather, tobacco and dried herbs all develop over time. Readers should plan on cellaring the 2015 for at least a few years, as it needs time to come together." Vinous

      "This red shows some breadth and muscle, with lively cherry, strawberry, iron, tobacco and earth flavors. Taut yet balanced, with plenty of sweet fruit offsetting the tannins on the finish. Combines grace with power." Wine Spectator

      Barbaresco Albesani DOCG 2015

      Albesani leaves nothing to be desired, in expression and character it is simply grandiose. The fresh bouquet of flowers, chalk, tobacco and cherries finds its continuation on the palate, where a beguiling silky tannin and an aromatic intensity virtually steals the senses. A masterpiece from Luca Roagna! SUPERIORE.DE

      "The 2015 Barbaresco Albesani is gracious, floral and lifted, which is not common in Albesani, where the wines tend to be more powerful. Bright acids and lively tannins give the 2015 its shape and energy. This translucent, inviting Barbaresco has so much to offer." Vinous

      "A combination of spicy cherry, iron, tobacco and tar aromas and flavors are woven into the dense tannins in this sinewy red. There's an essence of ripe fruit, yet this requires time to reconcile its gripping structure." Wine Spectator

Full bouquet of sweet tobacco, cedar, licorice and dried herbs. A soft, sweet red fruit combines excitingly with typical Roagna austerity on the palate for impressive complexity and length. It will only reveal its true elegance to us in a few years. SUPERIORE.DE

      "The 2015 Barbaresco Gallina is a very pretty, classic Barbaresco from this Neive site. Rose petal, spice, cedar, sweet pipe tobacco, mint, anise and orange zest all grace this delicious, wonderfully inviting Barbaresco. Soft, silky and impeccable in its balance, the 2015 can be enjoyed with minimal cellaring." Vinous

    • Barolo Pira DOCG 2015

      Barolo Pira DOCG 2015

      "Bright ruby red. Barolo Pira oscillates between fresh fruit and mild spice. Grown on 25-60 year old vines, the flawless cherry fruit is illuminated by ethereal top notes, toasted almonds and juniper berries alternate with rosemary, sour cherry and sloe. The nose continually defoliates with aeration, shifting like a kaleidoscope. On the palate, the ripe tannins take over and lay the velvety foundation on which the fruit blows on parade to flow straightforwardly and transparently across the drinker's palate with oriental-like spice. Notes of sandalwood, juniper and incense are underpinned by fine cherry notes, the precisely crafted acidic nerve is perfectly enveloped by the tightly woven tannin, giving it freshness and drinkability. A wine of uncomplicated distinction with superb length. Please get the big glasses out of the cupboard. Timely caraffing is strongly recommended." Sebastian Bordthäuser (Sommelier und Wein-Journalist)

      "The 2015 Barolo Pira is lifted and gracious in feel. In this vintage, the Pira is notably perfumed and restrained. Rose petal, mint, crushed flowers, dried cherry, star anise and cinnamon are some of the many notes that grace this delicate, lilting Barolo from Luca Roagna. The tannins are persistent and fine, lending a slightly nervous feel." Vinous

      "Supple and polished, featuring the essence of cherry and strawberry fruit, accented by menthol, mineral and sage flavors. This shows intensity, with a tightly wound structure that is so well-integrated you don't notice it at first. Plays out on the linear profile with echoes of fruit, mineral and Langhe scrub." Wine Spectator

      "Leather, forest floor, rose and camphor aromas take shape on this fragrant red along with a whisper of tobacco. Polished, linear and savory, the elegantly structured palate features juicy cranberry, orange zest, licorice and a hint of baking spice. Taut, refined tannins provide support while fresh acidity keeps it nicely balanced." Wine Enthusiast

      Barolo Pira from old vines exudes a rich fragrance of rose petals, spices, liquorice and dried cherries. Perfect on the palate, beautiful fruit and spice, lush, velvety tannins and a sheer endless length. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Shining, brightening ruby with a garnet shimmer. Fragrant and finely drawn nose, of rose petals, fresh peach, lots of juicy cherry. Smooth at the base, shows a lot of juicy fruit, then opens with dense, gripping tannin, builds up firm pressure, in the finale long finish, salty. " Falstaff

      "The 2011 Barolo Pira Vecchie Viti is deep, powerful and inviting, even with all of its forbidding tannin. In this vintage, the two Barolos are quite different. The straight Pira is quite delicate, while the Vecchie Viti is all muscle, brawn and old-style classicism. Dark stone fruit, graphite, smoke, licorice, sage, menthol and dark spices shape the huge finish." Antonio Galloni

    • Barbaresco Pajé "Vecchie Viti" DOCG 2015

      Barbaresco Pajé “Vecchie Viti” DOCG 2015

      "Transparent ruby red. Vines over 80 years old provide the material for this exceptional Barbaresco with a cathedral-like appearance on the nose: the ethereal-balsamic superstructure with notes of sandalwood and incense, juniper and rosemary is complemented by fruity litanies of cherries, raspberry jam and blood oranges and adorned by floral overtones of violets, mallow and hollyhocks along with a pinch of white pepper. On the palate, it is precisely parted, of noble understatement and charming nature. The fine, long acidity gives it aristocratic polish, the ripe and tightly woven tannins coat it in the noblest thread. Delicate and transparent, the delicate fruit illuminates the entire palate. Conversations fall silent, glasses clink, laughter. Its approachable manner seems jovial, yet it is demanding with decisive insistence and epochal reverberation. Everyone is happy to obey." Sebastian Bordthäuser (Sommelier und Wein-Journalist)

      "The 2015 Barbaresco Pajè Vecchie Viti is beautifully perfumed and lifted from the very first taste. There is an element of translucence to the 2015 that is utterly beguiling. Rose petal, mint, sweet red cherry, spice and new leather all grace this understated, alluring Barbaresco. All the elements fall into place effortlessly." Vinous

      "A creamy texture sets the stage for spiced plum and cherry flavors, while the vibrant acidity and dense matrix of tannins lend support. There is a lot to like overall, even if this red is a bit compact, brooding and less expressive today. The fine length reveals its potential." Wine Spectator

      "Aromas of camphor, new leather, sunbaked soil and a whiff of violet shape the nose on this enthralling wine. Full bodied and boasting a concentrated depth of delicious flavors, the structured linear palate delivers mature Morello cherry, blood orange, star anise and tobacco set against a backbone of firm but refined tannins. Fresh acidity provides balance." Wine Enthusiast

      Barolo Pira “Vecchie Viti” DOCG 2015

      "Transparent ruby red. The nose evokes the morning walk in an oriental bazaar. The ethereal opening combines noble woods such as cedar and sandalwood until you enter the spice section, where juniper mingles with black pepper and cardamom and dark tobacco. Fruit vendors cheerfully offer cherries, raspberry jelly and preserved hibiscus flowers, while florists have small violets on display. One of the market criers refreshes his bicycle chain with a quaff of graphite and chews on a piece of liquorice with a smile. The ripe, leafy tannins of the Barolo Pira Vecchie Viti are tightly interwoven with extract-sweet fruit notes and the all-defining acid arc.

      No component stands as a soleter, but always functions in conglomeration with the other players. The wine is a highly textural experience, powerful with a lean stature comparable to Bruce Lee. Extract, tannin and vertical acidity show up punchy on the palate with a multi-layered, epic final. Big glasses and big cuisine are strongly advised here." Sebastian Bordthäuser (Sommelier und Wein-Journalist)

      "The 2015 Barolo Pira Vecchie Viti needs a bit of time in the glass for an initial whiff of reduction to blow off. As it often is, the Pira Vecchie Viti is an exotic wine built on an intriguing mix of aromatic presence and understated structure. In 2015, the two Pira Barolos are not as different as they usually are. While the Vecchie Viti has terrific persistence, it also is a bit fleeting for this wine." Vinous

      "Aromas of green olive, juniper and sage frame concentrated flavors of cherry, currant, strawberry and mineral in this red, all of it filling the sleek body, with terrific tension and a long aftertaste of kirsch, mineral and wild herbs. Shows superb balance and length." Wine Spectator

      "Another drop-dead gorgeous wine from this dynamic estate, this elegantly structured wine opens with tantalizing aromas of camphor, fragrant purple flower, ripe berry, sunbaked earth and tobacco. Made with fruit from old vines, the youngest dating back to 1937, the compelling palate combines structure and grace, delivering pristine fruit sensations of strawberry compote and red cherry while licorice, baking spice and truffle add depth. Refined tannins and fresh acidity keep it balanced and vibrant." Wine Enthusiast

      Barbaresco Pajé DOCG 2015 · MAGNUM

      Roagna's Barbaresco Paje already has a great need to communicate in its youth and shows itself open-minded and with multi-layered aromas, full-bodied and in harmonious balance. An extraordinary pleasure for the next 20 years. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Bright ruby red. Pajé discharges in unerring volleys of raspberries and sour cherries as well as laurels and walnut shells, its shimmering ethereal top note reminiscent of asphalted roads on the midsummer horizon. Mild spices like cloves, black pepper and dried cherries are a recurring thematic theme equal to the theme tune of a monumental soundtrack. Mercilessly dry on the palate with beguiling extract sweetness. Grown on vines over 80 years old, the fruit and spice notes of the nose are accurately reflected on the palate and are firmly coated like Kevlar by ripe, tightly woven tannins. Complex and layered, it flows across the palate with a silky feel, almost floating, and its fruity, ethereal finish seems almost weightless with an extra-long finish. Large glasses and time are the weapons of choice." Sebastian Bordthäuser (Sommelier und Wein-Journalist)

      "The 2015 Barbaresco Pajè is the most nuanced and complete of the four wines in this lower tier of vineyard designates. Deceptively light in body, the 2015 possesses striking complexity and dimensions. Breadth and power are implied more than overtly stated. Clean, minerally notes punctuate the finish. The Pajè packs a serious punch. It will be even better in another few years' time. This is just classic Roagna and the wine in this range that offers the best value. I loved it." Vinous

      "Balsamic notes of camphor meld with ripe dark-skinned cherry, leather and dark spice. Delicious and loaded with personality, the enveloping palate doles out juicy black cherry, raspberry jam and star anise alongside earthy hints of truffle and game. Tightly knit, fine-grained tannins provide the framework." Wine Enthusiast

      "Mulled cherry, plum and spice flavors are shaded by rose, mineral and tar in this nimble yet powerful red, which gains intensity as it builds to a lingering aftertaste of dried fruit, mineral and spice. Offers superb energy and length." Wine Spectator

      Barolo Pira DOCG 2015 · MAGNUM

      "Bright ruby red. Barolo Pira oscillates between fresh fruit and mild spice. Grown on 25-60 year old vines, the flawless cherry fruit is illuminated by ethereal top notes, toasted almonds and juniper berries alternate with rosemary, sour cherry and sloe. The nose continually defoliates with aeration, shifting like a kaleidoscope. On the palate, the ripe tannins take over and lay the velvety foundation on which the fruit blows on parade to flow straightforwardly and transparently across the drinker's palate with oriental-like spice. Notes of sandalwood, juniper and incense are underpinned by fine cherry notes, the precisely crafted acidic nerve is perfectly enveloped by the tightly woven tannin, giving it freshness and drinkability. A wine of uncomplicated distinction with superb length. Please get the big glasses out of the cupboard. Timely caraffing is strongly recommended." Sebastian Bordthäuser (Sommelier und Wein-Journalist)

      "The 2015 Barolo Pira is lifted and gracious in feel. In this vintage, the Pira is notably perfumed and restrained. Rose petal, mint, crushed flowers, dried cherry, star anise and cinnamon are some of the many notes that grace this delicate, lilting Barolo from Luca Roagna. The tannins are persistent and fine, lending a slightly nervous feel." Vinous

      "Supple and polished, featuring the essence of cherry and strawberry fruit, accented by menthol, mineral and sage flavors. This shows intensity, with a tightly wound structure that is so well-integrated you don't notice it at first. Plays out on the linear profile with echoes of fruit, mineral and Langhe scrub." Wine Spectator

      "Leather, forest floor, rose and camphor aromas take shape on this fragrant red along with a whisper of tobacco. Polished, linear and savory, the elegantly structured palate features juicy cranberry, orange zest, licorice and a hint of baking spice. Taut, refined tannins provide support while fresh acidity keeps it nicely balanced." Wine Enthusiast

      Barbaresco Pajé “Vecchie Viti” DOCG 2015 · MAGNUM

      "Transparent ruby red. Vines over 80 years old provide the material for this exceptional Barbaresco with a cathedral-like appearance on the nose: The ethereal-balsamic superstructure with notes of sandalwood and incense, juniper and rosemary is complemented by fruity litanies of cherries, raspberry jam and blood oranges and decorated by floral overtones of violets, mallow and hollyhocks along with a pinch of white pepper. On the palate it is precisely parted, of noble understatement and charming nature. The fine, long acid arc gives it aristocratic polish, the ripe and tightly woven tannins coat it in the noblest thread. Delicate and transparent, the delicate fruit illuminates the entire palate. Conversations fall silent, glasses clink, laughter. His approachable manner seems jovial, yet is demanding with decisive insistence with epochal reverberation. Everyone is happy to obey." Sebastian Bordthäuser (Sommelier und Wein-Journalist)

      "The 2015 Barbaresco Pajè Vecchie Viti is beautifully perfumed and lifted from the very first taste. There is an element of translucence to the 2015 that is utterly beguiling. Rose petal, mint, sweet red cherry, spice and new leather all grace this understated, alluring Barbaresco. All the elements fall into place effortlessly." Vinous

      "A creamy texture sets the stage for spiced plum and cherry flavors, while the vibrant acidity and dense matrix of tannins lend support. There is a lot to like overall, even if this red is a bit compact, brooding and less expressive today. The fine length reveals its potential." Wine Spectator

      "Aromas of camphor, new leather, sunbaked soil and a whiff of violet shape the nose on this enthralling wine. Full bodied and boasting a concentrated depth of delicious flavors, the structured linear palate delivers mature Morello cherry, blood orange, star anise and tobacco set against a backbone of firm but refined tannins. Fresh acidity provides balance." Wine Enthusiast

      Barbaresco Crichët Pajé DOCG 2008

      Bright garnet red. Despite advanced maturity, the nose appears youthful, compact and closed. Dark earth, stony notes, a cool scent reminiscent of iron and graphite, some bacon, tar and wood smoke. Its fruit moves completely on the dark side, small blueberries, blackthorn, dried cranberries and dark plum puree. Extreme depth already in the nose. On the palate, a lot of freshness with the right dose of acidity and a still youthful tannin structure. A great, exciting drop, a monument of power that conceals incredible elegance and facets. Those who can wait have a clear advantage. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Sparkling, intense ruby garnet. Exciting and multi-layered nose, of raspberries, strawberries and rosewood, in the background some cinchona bark and dried orange peel. The palate also shows considerable density, rich tannin with fine meshes at the core, built up in many layers, ripe plums, discreet leather notes in the aftertaste". Falstaff

      "The 2008 Barbaresco Crichët Pajé is a gorgeous, translucent wine that shows this cool, late-ripening vintage at its best. Sweet red cherry, mint, kirsch, hard candy and white pepper are all beautifully delineated. In many vintages, Crichët Pajé was massively tannic and forbidding. The 2008 is the most refined vintage of this wine I have ever tasted." Antonio Galloni

      "Transparent ruby red with crimson tapered edges. The ethereal perfume of a complete Arabian bazaar with colorful cloths, incense sticks and brightly colored, piled up exotic spices comes directly to mind when you put your nose into the 2010 Barbaresco Crichët Pajé. Incense and myrrh, sandalwood and precious cedar wood exude an odeur like in 1001 nights. Spicy notes of cloves, allspice, mace and pepper are mixed with cherries, laurel and raspberry jelly, currant leaves and floral top notes of orange blossom complete the pleasure. In the drink Crichët Pajé presents itself with great calm in a steady flow. Nothing here is impertinent or exuberant, but radiates with distinguished elegance - an equilibrium in perfect balance. The aromatic exuberance of the nose is disciplined on the palate by the long, calm flow of focused, cool acidity, on the banks of which fully ripe and fine-grained tannins grow. Silky with almost aristocratic noblesse, its enormous complexity reveals itself in the second sip, when the aromas begin to unfold in the epic echo like a massive Win-Zip file. A wine for today, for tomorrow and for many, many more years to come. Unchallenged world class." Sebastian Bordthäuser (Sommelier und Wein-Journalist)

      "A ripe, savory style, with a fruit profile that leans toward cherry and plum compote flavors, accented by coffee, soy, tar and mineral notes, all supported by a dense layer of chunky tannins. Despite the mature fruit profile, this is surprisingly fresh on the finish, with excellent length. Still a youngster, this should age for decades." Wine Spectator

      "The 2010 Barbaresco Crichët Pajè is one of the most captivating and arrestingly beautiful wines I have ever tasted from Roagna. Intense, penetrating Nebbiolo aromatics make a strong opening statement before the 2010 literally takes over all the sense. Medium in body and yet also remarkably deep. Rose petal, kirsch, dried herbs, hard candy, mint and sweet spice develop in the glass, but it is the wine's sense of harmony that really stands out. The 2010 spent five years in cask (one less than normal), a choice that paid off handsomely." VINOUS

      "Made with extremely old vines, the youngest of which are over 60 years old and most much older, this opens with aromas of new leather, scorched earth, underbrush and balsamic notes of camphor. Concentrated and boasting a great depth of flavors, the structured, full-bodied palate delivers raspberry compote, dried black cherry, carob and hazelnut alongside firm, enveloping tannins. Another compelling wine from the estate." Wine Enthusiast

      "This red is full of mulled plum, cherry, menthol, stone and spice flavors. Concentrated yet fluid, with a tightly packed finish. Well-balanced and approachable now if decanted." Wine Spectator

      "It's easy to fall into the cult of Crichët Pajé. The wine's name means "little hill" in Piemontese dialect, and the winemaking process is carefully weighed and contemplated. The Roagna 2011 Barbaresco Crichët Pajé is fermented with indigenous yeasts, with submerged cap and sees eight long years of aging in both oak and cement. Fruit is drawn from a half-hectare, south-facing parcel high on the Pajé slope that has been farmed by this family since 1953. The bouquet reveals wild berry fruit, rose hip, cedar, crushed stone, smoke and licorice. This expression is lightweight in texture, yet it expertly balances a full load of aromas and flavors on that small frame. The heat of the vintage has not hurt the freshness or the sharpness that you perceive here." Robert Parker

      "Just bottled, the 2011 Barbaresco Crichët Pajè is unbelievably refined. Sweet red cherry, rosewater, mint, dried flowers, pine and kirsch give the 2011 an upper register of perfume that is utterly beguiling. Silky and classy to the core, the 2011 is the most sensual Crichët Pajè I can remember tasting. There is plenty of tannin, that is clear, but it is also pretty much buried by the sheer luxuriousness of the fruit. This is such a gorgeous and complete wine. There is just an unreal amount of freshness for this dry, torrid year. Wow!!" Vinous

      "The 2012 Barbaresco Crichët Pajè is tight and not especially expressive today. In this vintage, the Crichët Pajè is a bit more floral and lighter in structure than it can be. Imagine Burgundy with Nebbiolo acids and tannins. Among other things, that means the 2012 will drink well with minimal cellaring, in relative terms for this bottling. Despite its reticence, the 2012 is also restrained and so nuanced. I can't wait to see how it develops in bottle." Vinous

      "Camphor, truffle, wild berry and new leather are just some of the aromas you'll encounter on this riveting red.

Its fruit moves completely on the dark side, small blueberries, blackthorn, dried cranberries and dark plum puree. Extreme depth already in the nose. On the palate, a lot of freshness with the right dose of acidity and a still youthful tannin structure. A great, exciting drop, a monument of power that conceals incredible elegance and facets. Those who can wait have a clear advantage. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Sparkling, intense ruby garnet. Exciting and multi-layered nose, of raspberries, strawberries and rosewood, in the background some cinchona bark and dried orange peel. The palate also shows considerable density, rich tannin with fine meshes at the core, built up in many layers, ripe plums, discreet leather notes in the aftertaste". Falstaff

      "The 2008 Barbaresco Crichet Pajé is a gorgeous, translucent wine that shows this cool, late-ripening vintage at its best. Sweet red cherry, mint, kirsch, hard candy and white pepper are all beautifully delineated. In many vintages, Crichet Pajé was massively tannic and forbidding. The 2008 is the most refined vintage of this wine I have ever tasted." Antonio Galloni

      Barbaresco Crichët Pajé DOCG 2010 · MAGNUM in OWC

      "Transparent ruby with a chimney red rim. The ethereal perfume of a complete Arab bazaar with colourful cloths, incense sticks and brightly coloured, piled up exotic spices comes directly to mind when you stick your nose into the 2010 Barbaresco Crichët Pajé. Frankincense and myrrh, sandalwood and noble cedar wood exude an Odeur like in 1001 Nights. Spicy notes of cloves, pimento, nutmeg blossoms and pepper are mixed with cherries, laurel and raspberry jelly, currant leaves and floral top notes of orange blossom complete the pleasure. In Antrunk, Crichët Pajé presents itself with great tranquillity in constant flow. Nothing is cheeky or exuberant here, but radiates noble elegance - an equilibrium in perfect balance. The aromatic overflowing nose is disciplined on the palate by the long, calm flow of the focused, cool acidity, on whose banks fully ripe and fine-grained tannins entwine. Silky with almost aristocratic noblesse, its enormous complexity is revealed in the second sip as the aromas begin to defoliate in epic reverberation like a massive win-zip file. A wine for today, for tomorrow and for many, many more years. Undisputed world class." Sebastian Bordthäuser (Sommelier and wine-journalist)

      "A ripe, savory style, with a fruit profile that leans toward cherry and plum compote flavors, accented by coffee, soy, tar and mineral notes, all supported by a dense layer of chunky tannins. Despite the mature fruit profile, this is surprisingly fresh on the finish, with excellent length. Still a youngster, this should age for decades." Wine Spectator

      "The 2010 Barbaresco Crichët Pajè is one of the most captivating and arrestingly beautiful wines I have ever tasted from Roagna. Intense, penetrating Nebbiolo aromatics make a strong opening statement before the 2010 literally takes over all the sense. Medium in body and yet also remarkably deep. Rose petal, kirsch, dried herbs, hard candy, mint and sweet spice develop in the glass, but it is the wine's sense of harmony that really stands out. The 2010 spent five years in cask (one less than normal), a choice that paid off handsomely." Antonio Galloni

    About the winemakersRoagnaPiedmont
    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
