Roagna Arrival Offer

by Hugh French | May 13, 2020

 

Roagna Arrival Offer

 

 

This is an extraordinary set of wines from Luca Roagna. The 2014 Barbarescos are superb, while the Barolos are very good, especially considering the vintage was much more challenging in Barolo than it was in Barbaresco. A stunning rendition of the flagship Barbaresco Crichët Pajè rounds out the range. Readers will see new Barbaresco bottlings from Gallina, Faset and Albesani in the range this year. As always, the wines are super-classic in feel. Over the last years, Roagna has quietly shortened the amount of time his wines spend in cask and began introducing cement in the cellar. Today's wines have a sense of fruit purity and inner sweetness that the older wines often did not. I can't recommend these wines highly enough.

2018 Dolcetto d'Alba DOC
Usually $47 - Special Offer $42


Roagna's 2018 Dolcetto d'Alba is bright, floral and very nicely lifted, with striking aromatic nuance and tons of pure class. Sweet red cherry, licorice and crushed flowers are beautifully delineated. In 2018, the Dolcetto is especially refined, lifted and nervous in feel. Luca Roagna gave the 2018 an incredible 100 days on the skins, just like wines that were made decades ago, when, for practical reasons, farmers had multiple crops to look after and took wines off the skins around Christmas. The Roagna Dolcetto is made from two parcels in Barbaresco..

2014 Langhe Rosso DOC
Usually $79 - Special Offer $70


The 2014 Langhe Rosso is an absolutely gorgeous wine. Sweet tobacco, mint, crushed flowers, licorice, dried cherry and cedar give the 2014 striking complexity and nuance. In some vintages, the Langhe Rosso can be a bit frail, but the 2014 is supported by bright acids and beams of supporting tannin that confer a great deal of energy. The 2014 is a blend of estate fruit from both Pira and Pajè, that spent just under three years in oak and two years in cement.

2014 Barbaresco DOCG 'Paja'
Usually $205 - Special Offer $180


Cinnamon, cedar, sweet pipe tobacco and leather are some of the nuances that emerge from the 2014 Barbaresco Pajè. Pliant and open-knit, the 2014 is surprisingly open for a young Roagna Barbaresco, which makes it almost shockingly easy to enjoy even now (in relative terms), in what is the very early going by Roagna standards. Even, so there is plenty of Nebbiolo structure and tannin. Sweet rose petal, mint, tobacco, underbrush, game, and sweet red berry fruit add to the wine's stunning allure.

2014 Barolo DOCG 'Pira'
Usually $205 - Special Offer $180


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. Relative to the other wines in this lineup, the Pira comes across as a touch flat and lacking in body. Much of that is attributable to the vintage.
