Brilliant garnet-red color, with warmer tinges developing over time. Unmistakeable bouquet, very pleasant, intense yet ethereal, very persistent, at times spiced, with aromas of truffles, liquorice and dried flowers. Dry taste, with important, full tannins.
Wine Spectator 93 points - Lushly textured, this red cuts a rich swath of spicy plum and cherry flavors, with accents of leather and tobacco, until the beefy tannins corral all the elements on the finish. Balanced on the tannic side, this should find equilibrium with time. Best from 2018 through 2033. 3,000 cases made. -BS Rated #39 in Wine Spectator’s 2014 Top 100  (Dec 15 2014)

Top 100 WS 100 points - The 2010 Barolo is a gorgeous wine that is already well fleshed out despite the youthfulness of the fruit. The results are compelling and rich with velvety overtones of Amarena cherry, baking spice, tobacco, wet earth and sweet nutmeg. The oak element is evident (this base Barolo aged in botte grande from Slavonian oak for 30 months) but well on its way to finding integration within the general fleshiness of the wine. Given the high quality of fruit, this base Barolo should boast a long drinking window. Drink: 2017-2030. (Jul 2014)

What do you think of Hemingway? So asked readers of journalist Gianni Brera, who answered their literary and footballing questions in his column L’accademia di Brera (“Brera’s academy”) in the newspaper La Repubblica. His reply, in Sbornie prese per sport (“Drunk for the sake of sport”) on 12/12/1986: “Ernest drank Valpolicella because he was around Venice, and in those days the Oddero brothers of La Morra couldn’t get their wines to him. But if he’d known Oddero Barolo he would not have turned to the liquor which ultimately killed him.”

Producer
Poderi e Cantine Oddero is a historical brand among Barolo producers. The winery’s roots go back to the end of the 18th century when our ancestors began to make wine under their own name. The wine cellars, located in the frazione Santa Maria of La Morra, are raised up on a natural terrace and overlook the hills of the Langhe. Immersed in a sea of beautifully tended vineyards, our winery cultivates 35 hectares of the best cru of the Langhe and Asti territories to make some of Piedmont’s most renown wines: Barolo, Barbaresco, Langhe Nebbiolo, Dolcetto d’Alba, Barbera d’Alba, Barbera d’Asti, and Moscato. Traditional knowledge and modern production techniques. Tenacity, patience, and respect for our territory and its raw materials. Making wine means attending to every last detail, from winter to spring pruning, from thinning to harvest, from pressing to fermentation and a long aging time. Quality reveals itself in the details.
