The family run Roagna winery own 20 hectares of land in Piedmont of which 12 hectares are planted to vines while the rest remain wild forest.  The vineyards are located within the Barbaresco and Barolo designated areas and there are five specific vineyards that are found on the property. Their Dolcetto d’Alba is made using fruit from 45 year old vines planted in the Paj√© and Carso vineyards, based exclusively in Barbaresco.  The wine is fermented and then undergoes an ancient technique for maceration which lasts around 3 months.  After this the wine is aged in neutral oak for a year before bottling and release.
 
Deep, dark red in colour.  The bouquet is complex, fruity notes of cherry and blackberry are joined by exotic spices, floral notes and hints of bay leaf.  The palate is a real mix of fruit and earthy flavours.  Black cherry, mushroom, forest floor and mint are all present alongside mouth-watering tannins.  Slight nutty notes on the finish with another big hit of cherry fruit.
