Roagna Barolo Pira 2011

Roagna Barolo Pira 2011

Availability: Out of stock


"Roagna's 2011 Barolo Pira is soft, open-knit and expressive. Crushed flowers, sweet red berries, mint, anise and sweet tobacco give the Pira striking aromatic lift and inner perfume. Gracious and feminine throughout, the 2011 will drink well pretty much upon release. A kick of tannin and acidity on the finish are reminders this is indeed Barolo, but the 2011 is quite accessible for a young Roagna wine. This is a terrific example of the house style. Drink: 2019-2031. 92 points

Luca Roagna's 2011 Barolos continue a trend seen in the Barbarescos of wines that are relatively open by the estate's standards. In addition to the 2011s, I also tasted the 1996 Barolo Riserva, which is being released just this year. All three Barolos emerge from Roagna's steep hillside Pira vineyard in the heart of Castiglione Falletto, which is also the home of Roagna's new winery."
