Fifth generation in charge of this historic domain, Luca Roagna today represents one of the most loyal ambassadors of his region of Piedmont and Barbaresco. The finesse and freshness of his wines, as well as his aversion to the excessive influence of oak, have made this domain at once unmissable and very difficult to come by! We’ve unearthed their very best wines, just for you.
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.
