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 96
"The 2017 Barolo Pira Vecchie Viti dazzles from the very first taste. It offers a wild, intoxicating bouquet married to notable depth, with firm yet polished tannins that wrap it all together. Sweet red fruit, blood orange, rose petal, cinnamon, dried herbs and star anise build as this rich yet classically austere Barolo shows off what it's got. It is a super-classic Roagna wine." -Vinous

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

VINEYARD
Sourced from the Pira cru in Castiglione Falletto. It is a monopole vineyard and is the largest parcel owned by the Roagna family at 4.88 hectares.
SOIL
There are 6 unique micro parcels depending on the composition of the terrain which ranges from limestone marl Roca to blue stone.
VITICULTURE
The vines for this wine are over 50 years old.. The youngest vines for this wine date back to 1937.
VINIFICATION
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.
AGING
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.
