Roagna’s 2004 Barolo Vigna Rionda remains a mystery to me. I have tasted four bottles of this wine and found some variation. My first bottle was extraordinary, but subsequent bottles have been far less exciting. The wine possesses lovely liqueur-like fruit woven into suggestions of dried roses, spices and licorice. The best bottle reminded me of some of the greatest Vigna Riondas I have ever had in its freshness and structure, while other bottles have been more advanced, and while still pretty, lacking the sheer perfume and verve of the great bottle. That said, Nebbiolo can be a perplexing wine and some of the bottles may have just been shut down, so only time will tell which is the real Roagna Vigna Rionda. My best advice is to suggest that readers taste this wine before making any major commitments. This Barolo Vigna Rionda was vinified by Canale with the help of Luca Roagna. The wine saw a relatively short (by Roagna standards) maceration time of 60 days followed by roughly two years in oak. Anticipated maturity: 2012–2029.

Vigna Rionda is among the finest crus in the Serralunga d’Alba area with 40- to 60-year-old vines and this producer takes a traditional approach to Barolo. It opens with a slightly brownish hue and seems older than the vintage thanks to aromas of old spice, used leather and dried herbs. The mouthfeel is raw, but firm.
