  • This wine is made from fifty-year-old vines cultivated on iron, limestone and marl-rich soil. The parcel only spans 0.22 hectares, but it produces a particularly pure, aromatic and delicate wine. Its pleasing tartness enhances its fruitiness and gives it a very fresh, juicy character. The wine is long on the palate and in some respects reminiscent of the finesse of certain Burgundy grands crus. Protracted ageing gives it insanely good cellaring potential.

    The Roagna family owns a historic domaine in the village of Barbaresco in the Piedmont. It began producing dry wines circa 1880, when the region was the area of choice for northern Italian sweet wine makers. The domaine was extended in 1989, and now also produces Barbarescos and Barolos. Luca, who has a diploma in oenology, made his first vintage in 2001. He is keen on long, gentle extractions which he believes are appropriate for the Nebbiolo grape variety. Sulphur is used sparingly at less than 35 mg/l, and the domaine is run along organic lines, even though it is not formally certified.
