Roagna, the story
ALBESANI e GALLINA
Thanks to our friendship with the owner of the historic Albesiani and Gallina vineyard in Neive, we have rented portion of the vineyard in order to produce a new Barbaresco wine for Roagna. 2014 was our first year of production.
In 2013 we began a collaboration with the owner of the historic vineyard Faset in Barbaresco. 2013 was our first year of production.
We introduced a new concept creating our old vine Viti Vecchie wine in order to produce a wine with the best expression of terroir from each vineyard.
We began vinifiying each single vineyard wine in 2004 including Asili, Montefico, Paje, and Pira.
2003 – 2006
We collaborated with Tommaso Canale for four years, in fact these were the last four years of this vineyard.
This was the first harvest for Luca Roagna.
Alfredo and Luigina purchased the historic Cascina Pira near the fortress of Castiglione Falletto and began vinifying Barolo wine with the label La Rocca e La Pira. We gradually introduced the name Pira that represents this beautiful terroir.
Luca Roagna was born in 1981.
After many vintages Giovanni Roagna decided decreed this to be the most important wine for Aziend Agricola Roagna: Barbaresco Crichet Pajé.
During these five vintages, the Roagna family vinified each single vineyard separately.
This was the first harvest for Alfredo Roagna.
