Roagna Barolo Pira 2017


Antonio Galloni (Vinous):
The 2017 Barolo Pira is a powerful, intensely savory wine. Dark cherry, herbs, leather incense and licorice all add to an impression. The Pira Barolo is one of the most reticent wines in this entire collection. It is hard to read today, despite its obvious weight and character.

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.
