100% organically farmed Nebbiolo from one of the famed vineyards located in the commune of Neive.

Roagna's Barbaresco Albesani is a deep, pure and soil-driven wine that offers up fine depth of black fruit, a strong sense of terroir, hints of licorice and fresh herbs and a judicious base of tariness. On the palate it is full-bodied and structured, with firm, well-integrated tannins that demand some time in the cellar before drinking.

Fermentation lasts ten days in large wood casks. They ferment with a pied de cuvee made from their indigenous yeasts. They then use the technique of submerged cap (cappello sommerso), which can last 60-70 days. The wine then ages for five years in large, neutral botti.

The fine estate of Roagna has long roots in the commune of Barbaresco, having been started very early in the twentieth century by Vincenzo Roagna. The estate is now at the very top of the quality pyramid in Piedmont. The style of the estate’s wines has been carefully passed down through all five generations of Roagna family, with the wines made in a very traditional and classic style. These are deep, complex and structured wines that are built to age and handsomely reward cellaring.

Today the property is run by Luca Roagna, the fifth generation of the family. Starting with the 2014 vintage he debuted two additional wines from leased parcels, one from the famed Barbaresco cru Gallina in Neive and the other from perhaps Barbaresco’s greatest cru, Albesani.
