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 94
"The 2017 Barbaresco Pajè Vecchie Viti is fascinating to taste next to the straight Pajè. The old vines bottling shows more depth and muscle, along with a distinctly savory imprint that is quite beguiling. Sweet dried cherry, spice, crushed flowers, mint and incense infuse the 2017 with notable depth. The tannins are a bit unyielding today, so a few years of cellaring at a minimum seem warranted." -Vinous

"A silky, elegant red, this exhibits floral, strawberry and cherry flavors, with a hint of licorice. Structured, with a light chewiness to the finish now. Offers fine balance and expression, with a long, detailed aftertaste."

What importer Polaner Selections has to say about this wine...

Paje cru in Barbaresco. The parcel is Roagna's largest in Barbaresco, but is still only 1.83 hecatares.
Pajé is particularly rich in calcareous marl soil with a high content of active limestone.
The Vecchie Vigne selection is sourced from the oldest vines in his plot - over 50 years old. Average age is over 60 years old.
Fermentation lasts ten days in large wood casks. They ferment with a pied de cuvee made from their indigenous yeasts. They then use the technique of submerged cap -- which can last 70-90 days.
The wine is then aged in large neutral French botti. The oak Luca uses is never toasted but instead made by using hot steam instead of flame. The wine is normally aged for five years in wood before release.
