2015 Roagna Barbaresco "Albesani"

Regular price $129.00
Unit price

We got a few more allocated single vineyards in from Roagna so we're leaving them on offer this week. Just a friendly reminder that this producer's Barbaresco Crichet-Pajé is one of the cult wines of the entire Piedmont region and retails for nearly $1000. Don't believe me? Look HERE. In that context, these Nebbiolo's are an absolute STEAL. If you're someone who adores the classic Bruno Giacosa wines of the 1990s and 2000s then this is an absolute godsend. The wines are half to a third of the price of bottlings from the Gaja's and Giacosa's of the world, and deliver a matching profile of classic Nebbiolo tar and rose character. The estate has been around since the 1800s, but they have hit their stride over the last decade or so. Their top bottling, the Crichet Pajé (made from the crichet, the crest, of the Pajé cru), is an item of collector lore, a unicorn if you will that sells out in seconds! The Langhe Rosso is one of the greatest values in the world of Nebbiolo, a true must-buy. In the 2014 vintage, it was our favorite under $50 Nebbiolo of last year. For this wine, Roagna blends younger vines from their Pajé plot in Barbaresco and their Pira plot in Barolo, ages the wine EXACTLY like their cru Barolo's and then releases it as a Langhe Rosso. It's an exceptional value.
