If you are not familiar with these wines, but are a fan of traditionally made wines from Barolo and Barbaresco, you should waste no time in seeing everything you have been missing.andnbsp;These are substantial wines with plenty of density and depth that are built for the long haul. They carry all of their strength with an almost impossible grace. Luca Roagna, who leads things at the estate today, is about as calm and composed a guy as you'll find anywhere in the business. Luca sees his role more as steward rather than any sort of radical innovator. It's true that he's pushed for improvements in his cellar and vines, but these improvements relate to fine-tuning a more clear expression of the familyand#39;s holdings rather than creating anything revolutionary. Luca has settled into his post quite seamlessly since he took over in 2001, and the wines are more compelling than they have ever been.andnbsp;
