Roagna

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

"The 2014 Barolo Pira is a very pretty wine, but it is also quite open, both in its aromatics, and structural feel, where the wine feels unusually ample. Dark spice, tobacco, worn-in leather and mint are nicely laced together. This is a superb effort for the year, but I would not plan on cellaring it for too long, as it is quite open for a young Barolo, by Roagna standards.."

""The Pira cru is a Roagna family monopoly. They purchased this site (in Castiglione Falletto) in 1990, and the vines range from 40 to 50 years old. The 2014 Barolo Pira opens to dark and impeccably focused fruit. This wine offers an incredible level of sharpness and detail that adds a vivid, Technicolor character to the bouquet. The aromas are lifted, bright and vertical, fueled by the power and elegance that comes so naturally to Nebbiolo. There is zest and energy here, with plenty of acidity and tannic structure to liven up the finish. Exactly 12,984 bottles were produced, making this the easiest Roagna wine to locate at your local retailer."" -Monica Larner

Wine Spectator

WS 93
"Plum, mint and menthol aromas are the main themes, along with tar, licorice, leather and wild herb notes. Though the fruit is buried, there is sweetness midpalate, finishing on the dry side. A bit austere, but long, finding good equilibrium. Best from 2023 through 2039." -Bruce Sanderson
