Roagna Barbaresco Gallina 2017


Gallina is a cru in the Neive Commune of Barbaresco. This is one of the Roagna family’s newest cuvées.

Some of the most round, sexy and approachable Neive Barbarescos are found in Gallina. The Barbarescos tend to be silky, perfumed and easy to drink young, which is somewhat out of character for Neive. The best wines offer long and broad drinking windows.

The 2017 Barbaresco Gallina is bright, translucent and birstling with energy. Crushed red berry fruit, blood orange, spice, anise mint and chalk all run through this nervy, mid-weight Barbaresco. In 2017, the Gallina leans towards the more taut end of the spectrum. Sweet kirsch and floral notes add an exotic flourish on the finish – 92pt

Roagna is one of the most sought-after producers in Piedmont. Historically based in Barbaresco Commune, the family now also has a property in Barolo (Castiglione Falletto). Luca Roagna produces wines of purity and power. Ex Animo recently imported the wines directly from Piedmont.

Roagna’s style is characterised by old vines, and immaculate attention to detail in the vineyards where they do not use any herbicides or pesticides. They use prolonged submerged cap maceration to harness abundant, persistent and fine tannins. And they practice extended elevage for their top wines – 5 years in neutral oak is not unusual.

Luca Roagna has the unique ability to render Barbarescos of mind-blowing purity and incredible textural allure. This helps explain why the Roagna estate is the benchmark Barbaresco producer.
