Roagna Barolo Pira is a monovarietal Nebbiolo red wine from the DOCG Barolo, in the Piedmont area, and is made by the Roagna winery. Roagna is a family winery in Barbaresco, in the Piedmont area, which has old vines in historic vineyards. Among its principles is to use plant material from the vineyard itself to replant vineyard failures and not buy nursery cuttings, in order to maintain its own genetics. It respects the biodiversity in its plots, and therefore does not use any herbicides, pesticides or chemical fertilisers to grow them. It always ferments with wild yeasts in wooden vats and performs long macerations to produce wines with great ageing potential. It does not filter or clarify its wines, and bottles them using the minimum of sulphites possible, and ages them without letting the aromas of wood prevail over the fruity ones.

Tasting Notes

The 2016 Barolo Pira is a gorgeous, complex wine endowed with terrific depth and tons of nuance that continues to open over time. Light on its feet and yet wonderfully deep, the 2016 has so much going on. Kirsch, sweet red cherry, spice, orange zest, menthol and spice fill out the layers effortlessly. Young Barolo tannins are present, but there is plenty of richness in the fruit to keep things in balance. The Pira is absolutely stellar in this tasting.

Food Pairing

This wine makes an ideal pairing with roasted red meats, and truffles.
