Roagna is a family-owned winery located in the village of Barbaresco, in the Piedmont region of Italy. The family has been producing wine for over five generations, and today the winery is run by Luca Roagna, the fifth generation winemaker.
The winery is known for its traditional winemaking methods, which include using only natural, indigenous yeasts for fermentation, long maceration periods, and aging their wines in large, old oak casks.
The Barbaresco Paje 2015 is one of the winery's flagship wines, produced from grapes grown in their Paje vineyard, which is known for its unique soil composition and microclimate. The wine is made from 100% Nebbiolo grapes, which are carefully selected and hand-harvested.
The wine is aged for three years in large oak casks and then bottle-aged for an additional year before release. The result is a complex, full-bodied wine with notes of dark fruit, licorice, and spices. The wine has a long aging potential and can be cellared for up to 20 years.
Roagna is highly respected in the wine industry for their commitment to traditional winemaking methods and producing wines that truly reflect the terroir of their vineyards. Their Barbaresco Paje 2015 is a testament to their dedication and expertise. So, this wine represents not just the family's history and traditions but also the unique characteristics of the Paje vineyard.
