    May 30, 2020 - Uncorked 10 hours prior to serving into Zalto Burgundy glass (“Fruit” day): Pale garnet with ruby core. Bright colours.

    Mature fruits of preserved red cherry and prunes. Woody smoke. Animale and undergrowth notes.

    Great integration and a complete wine right from the beginning. Seaweed like minerality. Fine spices. Very suave tannins.

    93-94 points.

    12 hours upon opening: Even more mushroom, liquorice, hints of coffee beans. Very well integrated. More 94 points now.

    December 27, 2013 - Mature, with red berries, leather and sottobosco. With time a hint of bonfire. Slender in the mouth with firm acidity. Melted tannins. Very fine. I don't believe this is to keep for much longer though.

    July 19, 2009 - My first encounter with Roagna.
    This was a very nice wine, not really tired but based on this bottle past its peak (only by a few years I'd say).
    Delicate nose with was getting more intense and focused with air: light cherry and vanilla with earthy notes. Med body, high acidity, again nice cherry and rose notes. Just like the nose it was getting better with air before falling. Finish was a little short.
    Nevertheless, a very enjoyable and interesting wine.

    March 31, 2009 - Piedmont Night (Eleven Madison Park): Probably the wine of the night today in terms of catching it at exactly the right moment, the structure and material in perfect balance. Rich and intense, but supple.
