      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.

    • Barbera d'Alba DOC 2015

      Barbera d’Alba DOC 2015

      The grapes of this exceptional Barbera come from the single vineyard Pira in Castiglione Falletto - where the best Barbaresco of the region usually comes 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 it has clear and precise aromas of redcurrants, cherries, underpinned by a typical Barbera acidity and medium-weight tannin. In its overall composition it is one of the most fascinating, elegant and at the same time classic representatives of its kind and requires all the taster's attention and leisure - the reward follows on the foot.

    • Rosso Langhe DOC 2015

      Rosso Langhe DOC 2015

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

      "Transparent ruby red. The Langhe Rosso is a friendly wine whose nose is like a walk through a delicatessen. Sumptuously filled baskets of ripe, dark cherries and blackberries, accompanied by almonds, nuts and ethereal notes of white pepper and sandalwood in the overtones. On the palate the aromas of the nose are reflected. It tempts with silky tannin and deep, chunky fruit. The fresh acidity sets the pace, supported by fully ripe tannins. So juicy, joyful and multi-layered, a Nebbiolo is really rare in this segment. Sebastian Bordthäuser (Sommelier und Wein-Journalist)

    • "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

    • 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 is a white wine, which is not only in Piedmont no second time.

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

      "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

      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

    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
