Roagna's Langhe Rosso is made from young Nebbiolo vines planted in the Paje and Pira vineyards. Pajé is one of the historic vineyards of the village of Barbaresco located in the center. Pajé is particularly rich in calcareous marl soil with a high content of limestone.
Pira is a historic vineyard located in the village of Castiglione Falletto. Our vineyard sits on the side of Serralunga d’Alba and Perno and is Southeast facing. Pira contains specific characteristics due to the slow disintegration of the rocks of Castiglione.
The vines for this wine have approximately 25 years of age. Harvest takes place during the month of October when the fruit has reached perfect physiological maturity. The fruit is placed gently into small containers. Fermentation takes place exclusively in large wood casks with indigenous yeasts. This lasts for 10 days and then we use the ancient technique of maceration by splinting the submerged cap process which lasts for at least 60 days. The wine is then aged in a neutral oak barrel for approximately 5 years.
