“ Alfredo and Luca Roagna, the fourth and fifth generations of a family of long-established Barbaresco grape growers and winemakers, are handcrafting fascinating, soulful Barbarescos and barolos of mesmerizing depth. Roagna’s Barbarescos, made from estate grapes grown in the heart of the village’s top crus, and their Barols, from their holdings in Castiglione-Falletto are earthy, structured wines with mindblowing complexity and exceptional character and are the result of ideally ripened Nebbiolo from prime vineyards coupled with scrupulous disdain for convention and a near-fanatical obsession with nature. The Roagnas are die-hard naturalists who truly live out the natural farming philosophy. The family’s Barbaresco vineyards are in the most protected parts of the most desired crus, including Asili, Crichet Paje, Paje and Montefico in Barbaresco; and Pira and Carso in the Barolo village of Castiglione Falletto. They turn the earth once in every 4 – 5 years, never use chemicals of any kind, never put down any fertilizer of any sort, not even organic. Their vineyards average fifty-five to sixty years old ”.

Tasting note by David Berry Green ( buyer for Berry Bros ) and Barolo-based director of DBG Italia: 

" At 0.24 hectares it’s a slightly bigger piece than Asili, this time though located close to Barbaresco village in a naturally protected amphitheatre, mid-slope on grey marne, so it’s mulberry rich yet salty cool. I’d go so far as to say that it’s sumptuous, with great depth, an empathic presence and gorgeously ripe, old vine fruit (oldest planted in 1929) from grassed over, naturally low-yielding vineyards. Epic. Montefico is Roagna’s most hedonistic with mulberry fruit notes & a taut limestone core. Their most structured Barbaresco – more akin to Barolo even. Emphatic, sumptuous in 2009, underpinned by white rock, great depth & superripe. 1346 bts produced. From 2022?
