Roagna is a well established and traditional estate originally in Barbaresco that has slowly acquired holding in long respected crus in Barolo. Tradition is paramount at this family estate, their motto says it all: "Roagna does not change", current winemaker and head of the estate Luca Roagna does everything in the same manner as his father and grandfather before him.

Pira is a small cru that sits below Rocche di Castiglione and Roagna is the only producer that bottles a wine from this vineyard.

A lifted and bright nose of dried flowers, cherries and tobacco give way to a palate of red fruits backed by amaro, blood orange and cinnamon. The back palate and exit moves through powdery tannic grip, a refined coolness of turned earth and savoury spiced red fruits.
