The fine estate of Roagna 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 estate has a long and successful history, but Luca has certainly taken the estate to the highest echelon of the region in recent years. The style of the estate’s wines has been carefully passed down through all five generations of Roagna family, with the wines made in a very traditional and classic style. These are deep, complex and structured wines that are built to age and handsomely reward cellaring. While Roagna is well-renowned for their fine Barbaresco and Barolo bottlings, Luca also makes an amazing Langhe Rosso from a blend of 25 year-old vines from his Barolo Pira and Barbaresco Paje vineyards. Those in the know consider Roagna's Langhe Rosso bottling to be one of the great Piedmont values, as it's definitely many cuts above your basic Langhe Rosso bottling. In fact, the quality of his Langhe Rosso bottling is on par with many quality producers' village level Barolo or Barbaresco. Any fan of traditionally-styled Nebbiolo owes it to themselves to grab some bottles of this very limited Piedmont value gem!
