Roagna Barbaresco 'Paje' Nebbiolo 2018



Country: Italy

Region: Piedmonte

Type: Red Wine

Grape: Nebbiolo

Roagna is one of Piedmont’s top producers, known for their complex, aromatic cuvées produced from long macerations and Slavonian oak aging. The estate has long roots in the commune of Barbaresco, having been started very early in the twentieth century by Vincenzo Roagna. Today the property is run by Luca Roagna, the fifth generation of the family. The Barbarescos are deep, pure and soil-driven wines that offer up black fruit, notes of licorice and fresh herbs and a balanced base of tariness. Full-bodied and structured, they have firm, well-integrated tannins and a superb track record for longevity.

Fruit for this wine is hand-harvested from Roagna's largest parcel in Barbaresco (still only 1.83 hectares), with vines ranging in age from 25 to 50 years. Farming is organic and the wine is fermented for ten days in large wood casks. Fermentations are with indigenous yeasts, followed by aging in neutral French botti for about five years.
