Reviews & Scores

Cedar, worn-in leather, tobacco, smoke and dried cherries are all laced together in the 2005 Barbaresco Crichët Pajé. Hints of orange peel, cedar and star anise add nuance as the wine gradually opens up in the glass. The silky polished tannins and soft, mid-weight feel suggest the 2005 will drink well for the next decade plus, but my own personal preference would be to drink this sooner rather than later. As is often the case, after eight years in barrel the flavors are a bit forward.

TASTING NOTES

The 2018 Timorasso Derthona Montemarzino is only the fourth vintage produced and has quickly captured the imagination of collectors.

TASTING NOTES

Another new wine for the Roagna family, first produced in 2014, Gallina offers the hedonistic quality that typifies wines from this site whilst also displaying the classical feel of Roagna’s Barbarescos. Like Albesani, this comes from a leased parcel of vines in Neive.

TASTING NOTES

This is just the second vintage of this wine, made from a parcel rented by a family friend. Antonio Galloni writes: “Barbaresco Albesani is frankly on another level relative to the other Barbarescos Luca Roagna has recently added to his range.” The chalky soils contribute to the wine’s fragrant aromatics.
