2013 Barolo La Pira Vecchie Viti, Roagna

Pira is the largest plot owned by the Roagna family, but this old vine gem comes from a tiny portion of the surface area. Here, the youngest vines date from 1937, making them 76 years old at the time of the 2013 harvest. This is a near-perfect wine, with notes of orange peel and an almost Pinot-like texture. Long, intense yet weightless, it’s a wine that will last for decades.

2013 Barolo La Pira Vecchie Viti, Roagna
Roagna

The saying ‘like father, like son’ applies to Alfredo Roagna and his grown son Luca. They share an infectious passion for their wines that bear the family name, and for upholding a tradition dating to the 1920s. With a new winery in the hillside in Barbaresco itself, they have the perfect playground. Their philosophy is considered traditional: from nearly fifteen hectares of vines, some one hundred years old, they let the wines show their terroir, and intervene as little as possible.
