Wine Spectator:

" This is beginning to show some mature elements of truffle, tar, dried cherry, leather, eucalyptus and woodsy underbrush, with assertive tannins. Ends with accents of licorice and mineral. Balanced overall, delivering sweet fruit and a long finish. Just about ready. Drink now through 2028. 788 cases made."

Antonio Galloni - Vinous:

"Roagna's 2011 Barbaresco Pajé is dark, sensual and inviting. Black cherry, plum, licorice, smoke, scorched earth and menthol give the Pajé much of its dark, brooding personality. The ripeness of the vintage has softened some of the contours, but this remains a decidedly virile, imposing Barbaresco that will show at its best with a few more years in bottle. Layers of flavor build into the striking, baritone finish."

Product Description:

"Roagna is one of my favorites and always a great value." -- Eric Asimov, The New York Times

"The fine estate of Roagna has long roots in the commune of Barbaresco, having been started very early in the twentieth century by Vincenzo Roagna. Vincenzo passed on the reigns to his son Giovanni Roagna, who in his turn saw his son Alfredo succeed him as the head of the estate. Today the property is run by the fifth generation of the family, Luca Roagna. Luca was born in 1980, and succeeded to the winemaking for the property soon after his graduation from oenological school in 2001. The style of the estate’s wines has been consistently safeguarded down through all five generations of Roagna family members who have steered the property, with the wines made in a very traditional and classic style. These are deep, complex and structured wines that are built to age and handsomely reward cellaring.

The heart of the Roagna estate is its six and a half hectares of vineyards in the commune of Barbaresco, most of these lying in the fine cru of Pajè. From the Pajè vineyard the Roagna family now makes three distinct cuvées, a Barbaresco “normale” labeled as Barbaresco “Pajè,” a Barbaresco Paje Vecchie Vite and “Crichët Pajè" - made from the crest of the Paje cru." -Importer
