Reviews & Scores

Crushed flowers, tobacco, mint, licorice and dried cherries lift from the glass in Pira's 2009 Barolo Pira Vecchie Viti. Interestingly, within Roagna's range the old vines in Pajè confer power, but here they seem to add finesse. Sweet tobacco, menthol and worn-in leather add nuance on the open, expressive finish. The 2009 Pira Vecchie Viti is a bit more forward than the straight Barolo Pira. It will be interesting to see how both wines age.

TASTING NOTES

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

2018 Montemarzino, Luca Roagna

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.
