About

Pira is a historic vineyard located in the village of Castiglione Falletto and originally owned by the noble family who had a private road that connected the vineyard and the castle hundreds of years ago.

The vineyard sits on the side of Serralunga d’Alba and Perno and is Southeast facing. Pira contains specific characteristics due to the slow disintegration of the rocks of Castiglione. The family purchased this vineyard in 1989.

The vines for this wine are between 25 and 50 years of age. The roots are sourced by used the massage wood system by using only clippings that we have pruned from the Pira vineyard.

The harvest takes place normally during the middle of October by hand into small containers usually in the morning once the fruit has reached perfect physiological ripeness. Before being made into wine, the team at Roagna manually selects each berry in order to have perfect fruit.

Fermentation takes place exclusively in large wood casks thanks to a pied de cuve created from our indigenous yeasts. This lasts for ten days and then we use the ancient technique of maceration by splinting the submerged cap process which lasts for at least two months, (60 – 75 days). The wine is then aged in a neutral oak barrel for approximately 5 years.

The production of bottles is limited to less than fifteen thousand bottles per vintage. Each bottle is individually numbered.
