Dark intense purple color. On the nose a meaty, plummy, gnarly beast. Intense savory notes with dried herbs, a hint of cornas in character style, and feral blue stuff. Astonishing depth and purity of fruit at the front given its age. I’ve never had a barbera of this intensity and style before. Unfortunately in the palate it is a short treat and relatively simple, though plush. Not much finish on this. A great surprise though... — 11 days ago
Very nice barbera! Punches quite above its weight - would love to try the Barolo or barbaresco. Quite classic and old school with lots of earth and rusticity but still accessible now with a decent amount of air and a slight chill. — 3 days ago
More on the savoury side. Dark fruits. A little spice. Medium body. Medium tannins.
Delicious on it's own or with food. — a day ago
I love a good Barbera and this is that. Great depth and nuance, the 2010 Roagna is a sophisticated wine that is intensely food friendly. Dark cherry, tar, mint and licorice combine. It's a stunner and was made even better when paired with a gorgeous risotto lovingly prepared by dear friends. — 25 days ago
Overripe strawberry, canned red plums, floral, caramalized sugars. Damn. A touch hot, but does not minimize sweetness + acidity — 3 days ago
