Roagna Barbaresco Faset 2014
- Red Wine
Expressive, exuding plum, cherry, blood orange, mint, leather and tar flavors. Shows a warm spiciness as this plays out on the long finish. Powerful in the end. -WS
Roagna is a family-owned Piemontese producer based in Barbaresco. It has been making wine in the district since before its official classification in 1890, and is particularly known for its Barbaresco Crichet Paje cuvee, one of the highest-priced wines made in Italy. The estate is made up of vineyard parcels that have been gradually acquired over the years. Today, Roagna owns 12 hectares (30 acres) of vines, including four small plots in the Barbaresco cru vineyards Asili, Carso, Montefico and Paje, plus 7ha (17 acres) at Pira in Castiglione Falleto, Barolo. In addition, there are several collaborations in place with owners of other prestigious vineyard plots.
