Dolcetto d’Alba - Roagna

Dolcetto d’Alba

A traditional indigenous variety found in our estate-owned vineyards, near the winery's historical headquarters.
This wine is made from vines that are over fifty years old, according to a very traditional vinification process that can include up to 100 days of submerged cap maceration. The wine then ages for a year in wood and concrete vats.
Very pleasant when young, it also has excellent ageing potential, thanks to its origins in very calcareous historical vineyards.

Young vines, up to 20-25 years old, are used for this wine. The vines are exclusively of massal origin, with wood obtained during the pruning of the same vineyard.
Fermentation takes place exclusively in wooden vats using a pied de cuve made from indigenous yeasts. It lasts about ten days. The ancient, submerged cap maceration technique is then applied, lasting at least two months. The wine ages in a neutral oak barrel and concrete tanks for about five years.
We produce around 10,000 bottles a year.

Opera Prima - Roagna

Opera Prima

Opera Prima was first made at the end of the 1970s by Alfredo Roagna. The idea behind the wine? The blending of different vintages of Nebbiolo to obtain a wine that is the sum and synthesis of the finest vintages, smoothing out the differences between them.
The label is the result of young Alfredo's flair and his desire to create a revolutionary, “contrasting” wine to challenge a historical era in which the appellation was of little value.
The blends have varied over the years, from a minimum of two to a maximum of four different vintages. The wine is made from old Nebbiolo vines from the various vineyards. It ages in neutral oak barrels and concrete tanks and is blended when it reaches optimum maturity.
Opera Prima bears a Roman numeral identifying the edition, starting with Opera Prima III.

From III to XX
