Roagna, Barolo, Rocche di Castiglione 2016


Case Format: 6x75cl

From the Roagna estate in the heart of Italy’s Piedmont region comes the Barolo Rocche di Castiglione, a wine that epitomizes the grace, power, and profound depth of this iconic appellation.

Roagna, a name revered in the world of Barolo, has upheld a tradition of uncompromising quality and respect for the land for generations. Their Barolo Rocche di Castiglione is a pinnacle of their winemaking artistry, sourced from the esteemed Rocche di Castiglione vineyard.
This wine is meticulously crafted from Nebbiolo grapes, a noble variety that thrives in the Langhe hills surrounding the Castiglione Falletto commune. The grapes are carefully hand-harvested and undergo a meticulous vinification process that respects the nuances of this singular terroir.

After fermentation, the wine is aged in large, traditional Slavonian oak casks, where it matures for an extended period, often exceeding three years. This aging process allows the wine to develop its extraordinary complexity and structure while preserving the integrity of the Nebbiolo grape.

In your glass, Roagna’s Barolo Rocche di Castiglione unveils its garnet hue, captivating with aromas of red roses, dark cherries, and subtle hints of tar and truffle. On the palate, it unfurls with elegance and power, offering a harmonious balance of bold tannins and vibrant acidity. Flavours of blackberry, red plum, liquorice, and a distinct earthiness weave together, leading to a profoundly long and memorable finish.

Here is an exciting new submission from Roagna. The 2016 Barolo Rocche di Castiglione (with 2,713 bottles made) shows quite a few sides to its character. There is a slightly softer side with ripe fruit that dovetails into a spicy side in which you get a clear whiff of white peppercorn. From there, we venture into earthy aromas with iron ore, rose and dried violet. Lastly, there is crushed stone or granite. All of these various facets emerge over a very clean, long and polished mouthfeel.

Luca Roagna has bottled Rocche di Castiglione for the first time in 2016. He manages 0.49 hectares beside the winery in Castiglione Falletto, from which he produces 2,000 bottles from vines of 50 years of age. The wine is traditionally fermented in oak with a long maceration after fermentation of 60 days, using the submerged-cap technique. Restrained tobacco, cinnamon and wild strawberry flavours emerge on a palate full of sucrosity, quite typical of the steep vineyard and the younger soils. Dense, velvety and ripe, it ends with a gently austere finish and crisp acidity.
