Roagna, 2017 Langhe Bianco, Solea
95% Chardonnay, 5% Nebbiolo pressed as white wine. 1000 bts produced.
From a small plot of 30+year old vines located in the Pira Barolo vineyard in Castiglione Falletto, this impressive wine is fermented with indigenous yeasts and then aged in small neutral French oak casks for two years.
A very intriguing minty nose with exotic edges leads into a very serious wine. Its compact mineral structure, great tension and length are softened by a plush texture and plenty of ripe fruit. Serious acidity will keep this wine fresh for years to come.
