Luca Roagna and his family have been making some of the greatest wines in Piemonte for generations, and the quality just keeps rising. Anyone will be able to respect and admire the work of Luca Roagna: no step taken in the vineyard or the winery is without complete follow-through of thought.

Standing in the middle of one of their vineyards, you almost forget it's a place to grow grapes. Grass, insects and wildlife flourish throughout the vines, which are never subjected to chemical sprays, mowing or tilling. The bio-sphere is diverse and vigorous, the soils healthy: the result is impeccably grown grapes ready to become impeccably made wine.

Professional Reviews

Antonio Galloni

AG 92
"The 2017 Barbaresco Gallina is bright, translucent and bristling with energy. Crushed red berry fruit, blood orange, spice, anise, mint and chalk all run through this nervy, mid-weight Barbaresco. In 2017, the Gallina leans towards the more taut end of the spectrum. Sweet kirsch and floral notes add an exotic flourish on the finish." -Vinous

Wine Spectator

WS 94
"Both rich and fruity, boasting cherry, strawberry, rose, iron and eucalyptus aromas and flavors. Shows terrific balance and a juiciness that extends the fruit and savory finish."
