Roagna have been making wine since the 19th Century and are one of the most celebrated names in Piedmont. We recommend decanting this for about an hour, and it should be a brilliant match with Sunday roast! If you would like to hold onto it, this can certainly age for at least 3-5 years.
'The 2017 Dolcetto d`Alba is absolutely gorgeous for many reasons, including its freshness (so rare in 2017) and super-classic sense of structure. Pliant, silky and supple, the 2017 exudes personality from the very first taste. Lifted aromatics and bright, red-toned fruit are two of the signatures in this deeply expressive Dolcetto. Quite simply, Luca Roagna takes Dolcetto to a new level with his exquisite, beguiling 2017. Readers should expect an especially nervy, classically austere style. Luca Roagna gave his Dolcetto 100 days on the skins, which is virtually unheard of these days, even for Barbaresco and Barolo! Fruit sources are Pajè and Carso.' 91 points, Antonio Galloni.
