Palate Profile

Roagna is one of the most sought-after producers in Piedmont. Historically based in Barbaresco Commune, the family now also has a property in Barolo (Castiglione Falletto). Luca Roagna produces wines of purity and power. 

Roagna’s style is characterised by old vines, and immaculate attention to detail in the vineyards where they do not use any herbicides or pesticides. They use prolonged submerged cap maceration to harness abundant, persistent and fine tannins. And they practice extended elevage for their top wines – 5 years in neutral oak is not unusual.

Critic Awards

A succulent red hallmarked by macerated cherry, raspberry and plum aromas and flavors. Gains depth from accents of flowers, earth and wild herbs as this cruises to a long, mouthwatering finish. Deftly balanced and persists on the finish.

The 2017 Barolo Rocche di Castiglione is silky and polished right out of the gate. Even so, there's tons of depth behind the elegant facade. Succulent red fruit, spice, tobacco, cedar, leather and dried flowers all meld together in a sensual, voluptuous Barolo that captures the essence of Rocche.
