Roagna Barbaresco Crichet Paje 2007

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

At decanting: very fresh, vegetal and tight, soil, dandelion green and raspberry Herbal on the nose with aromas of root vegetables and oyster shells. This is incredibly attenuated with raw horseradish/black radish notes. On the palate this is herbal, even vegetal. There’s still some tannin here and even in spite of that you can tell this was well made but there’s no fruit and this is raw and a bit unpleasant. 75pts

The roots The Nebbiolo grape, deep-rooted since ancient times in the gentle slopes of the Langhe hills in Alba area, found in Barbaresco village unique personality and features in the world. Roagna family, wine-makers since generations, is passing down from father to son the historical procedures and techniques, in keeping with the grape tradition. Yesterday Roagna family have been dealing with wine-growing and winery activity for over a century and a half, when the traditional wine-making style was started. Vincenzo, the grand-grandfather, owned the historical winery situated in the centre of the small Barbaresco village and after having harvested the grapes at the earliest foggy days (Nebbiolo comes from "nebbia" the Italian word for fog) he made wine in wood vats: this happened yesterday and it is still happening today. Years later, Giovanni Roagna and Maria Candida, moved the winery to the I Paglieri (Pajé) farm, seeing in that hill one of the highest expression of the territory. Today When Alfredo Roagna finished his agricultural science studies he supported his father with the help of his wife Luigina; he tried out new techniques and he strived for the utmost identity of the terroir. The innovative techniques made a great and important contribution, especially in the vineyards, allowing in 1990 the business growth with the purchase of the five hundred years old Cascina Pira in Rocche di Castiglione Falletto. The land is cultivated, as all our vineyards, directly by the family members themselves. At the end of '90 Luca, the fifth wine-maker generation, joined his parents in the company. Soon the restoration of the historic Cascina Pira started to build Casa Roagna, a meeting place between lovers of traditional-style wines and our family. We will sadly remind the 2006 as the most difficult year of our history, due to the death of Giovanni in April and Luigina in August. Tomorrow We have been following up the same ideas ever since, these ideas are a proper life philosophy; the support from technologies is important, but only to protect the uniqueness and the identity of Nebbiolo grape, in its best expression of the terroir. The greatness of a wine from Langa lies in the land, which is unique and it differs from one hill to another (and maybe more), in its elegance of its microelements. Men have to understand it and not to force it. Read less

The estate of Roagna has long roots in the commune of Barbaresco, having been started early in the twentieth century by Vincenzo Roagna. Today the property is run by the fourth generation of the family, Luca. Their Barbarescos are deep, pure & soil-driven wines that offer up fine depth of black fruit, strong signatures of terroir, notes of licorice, fresh herbs & a judicious base of tariness. They have a superb track record for longevity.
