Garnet-red color. A rich nose with a clear "goudron" (tarry) aromas, tobacco, spices, and white flowers with a constantly-evolving bouquet. This wine has a full, austere and elegant taste with a great structure, consistent with the flavors and aromas.
With its great structure and elegance, this wine can be matched with red meat, stew meat, ripe cheese and pasta.
Roagna’s 2004 Barolo La Rocca e la Pira is awesome. A sensual, layered Barolo, the wine emerges from the glass with gorgeous inner perfume, power and depth in its dark fruit. The aromatics seem to be developing faster than the fruit and structural components. My impression is that this won’t be a terribly long-lived wine, but it should drink well to age twenty or so. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2024
