Roagna Barolo 'Pira' 2012

Varietal Nebbiolo from one of Piedmont’s top producers. Known for their dry, aromatic cuvées, Roagna never disappoints. The 2012 ‘Pira’ is dense and voluminous, with well-integrated tannins and solid backbone. Nuanced flavors of tobacco, mint, and earth create a textured, insanely pleasurable mouthfeel. Barolo lovers, we’d grab two.

Nebbiolo

This tartly tannic, headily fragrant, beguilingly complex king of Italian red grapes is brimming with bright fruit and earthy funk -- in versions ranging from explosive (Barolo) to ethereal (Valtellina).

Barolo, Italy

'King' and 'Queen,' respectively, of Italian red wine, both 100% Nebbiolo grown on undulating hillsides near the Piedmontese town of Alba. Heady, spicy, wildly aromatic reds that are built to last.
