Roagna's Thrilling 14s
01 October 2019

If ever a case was to be made for the unjustly- maligned 2014 Piedmont vintage then Luca Roagna QC would be the man to make it! Our own clear verdict, after tasting his whole range, both Barolos and Barbarescos, is that 2014 is an excellent vintage here. Admittedly cool years such as this don’t always come with consistency and involve a lot of hard work to achieve the desired results, but within Luca's range lies proof that with excellent terroir and dedicated, thoughtful vine-growing it was possible to yield first rate wine in 2014.

Luca is known for his late harvesting. This was particularly vital in 2014. He ran the risk of losing crop by waiting for full berry, skin and seed ripeness, thus ensuring the completeness of the wines and roundness of their tannins. A calculated decision by which Luca has been entirely vindicated. For this long, cool ripening season has resulted in accomplished wines of texture, finesse and clear vineyard expression. Take Montefico as an example: a cool site in a cool vintage that was the last to be picked, on the 26th October. Its fresh, vivid fruit boasts good intensity and is wrapped in the softest of structures. Fine-knit and effortlessly silky tannins that gently bind together the wine's fresh, dark fruit and minerality.
