Tasting Notes

Crichet Pajé is the pinnacle of Roagna’s production, the jewel in the crown, and one of Piedmont’s greatest wines.

The first vintage of this legendary wine was 1978, although a few bottles were produced as an experiment in 1977. Vines are 80+ years old. This is something truly special.

2018 Montemarzino, Luca Roagna

TASTING NOTES

“A darker, more structured Barolo than his sibling, Prapo’ is an incredibly pure expression of the terroir of Serralunga. Precise notes of red and black berries, forest floor and dark spices are framed by tight woven tannins and lively freshness. An exciting release that has the potential to be enjoyed for the next 10 years.” Armit Wines
