"The 2014 Barbaresco Faset is laced with sweet red cherry, mint, wild flowers, licorice and orange peel. Soft, and inviting, with lovely inner perfume, the 2014 will drink well with minimal cellaring. This is an especially soft, open-knit style, and yet there is plenty of Nebbiolo persistence and overall grip. The 2014 is a solid debut. It doesn't take much to see where the Faset is likely to go in coming vintages. Drinking window: 2020-2029. 92 points

This is an extraordinary set of wines from Luca Roagna. The 2014 Barbarescos are superb, while the Barolos are very good, especially considering the vintage was much more challenging in Barolo than it was in Barbaresco. A stunning rendition of the flagship Barbaresco Crichët Pajè rounds out the range. Readers will see new Barbaresco bottlings from Gallina, Faset and Albesani in the range this year. As always, the wines are super-classic in feel. Over the last years, Roagna has quietly shortened the amount of time his wines spend in cask and began introducing cement in the cellar. Today's wines have a sense of fruit purity and inner sweetness that the older wines often did not. I can't recommend these wines highly enough."
