Why We're Buying

Roagna may be the master of Barbaresco, but the estate is far from a one-trick pony. La Pira is an extensively aged Barolo that ranks among the most expensive red wines from the appellation. The wine is not made in large quantities, meaning that the scarcity will continue to drive up the price.

WINE ENTHUSIAST
96

Wine Enthusiast

Leather, forest floor, rose and camphor aromas take shape on this fragrant red along with a whisper of tobacco. Polished, linear and savory, the elegantly structured palate features juicy cranberry, orange zest, licorice and a hint of baking spice. Taut, refined tannins provide support while fresh acidity keeps it nicely balanced. Drink 2022–2030.
