Roagna La Pira 2011
The Barolos are a bit more robust and show some red fruity character to go along with their core of black cherry fruit, anise, autumnal soil tones, tar and woodsmoke. On the palate they too are full-bodied and powerful wines, with fine balances and the potential to easily evolve in the cellar for thirty or more years.
Fermentation in wood casks. Maceration for 70-90 days. Aging: 4-6 years in medium-sized French and Slavonian oak casks, then in bottle. Soil: The qualities of sandy-calcareous soil in this area a unique tannic heritage with very elegant olfactory sensations. The grapes assigned to the production of this wine come from selections of vineyards in the area of Rocche di Castiglione Falletto from the historical Cascina Pira.
