Fratelli Oddero Barolo Rocche di Castiglione 2008

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

This has a great nose full of nettles, spices, rose petal, smoke and limestone, though not much fruit yet. Intense, round, rich and powerful on an entry that shows more flesh than many 2008s. The mid-palate offers lovely depth with rich wild berry fruit, dusty, austere tannins and hints of lingonberry and mint on the long, aromatic mineral-laced finish. This is a classic wine with great cut. This will be very, very good 93pts

A nice herbal edge shows up early on the nose followed by a fair amount of oak and leather. This is a bit soft with black fruit in the mouth in a fairly tannic, broad and low in the mouth style that is dark and muscular. It a bit small scaled, this none the less delivers lovely bitter black cherry fruit with a touch of a wild, animale character to it. 89pts
