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.
