Roagna, 2015 Langhe Rosso
The 2014 Langhe Rosso is an absolutely gorgeous wine. Sweet tobacco, mint, crushed flowers, licorice, dried cherry and cedar give the 2014 striking complexity and nuance. In some vintages, the Langhe Rosso can be a bit frail, but the 2014 is supported by bright acids and beams of supporting tannin that confer a great deal of energy. The 2014 is a blend of estate fruit from both Pira and Pajè, that spent just under three years in oak and two years in cement.
