Fratelli Oddero Barolo Rocche di Castiglione 2009

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

A little reticent on the nose but this builds fine tobacco notes, over great lingonberry fruit that shows a little wood sweetness, cigar box, and a little sweet Cognac cream note. Clear, firm, austere and bright in the mouth with red fruit cut by mineral notes in a powerful yet precise style. The tannins are ripe if just a touch bitter perhaps, though the are very well integrated with the black cherry fruit on the long, elegant finish. 93pts

Our winery is nestled in the Langhe hills, overlooking a sea of vines. Just as in the past, only grapes from family-owned vineyards are used to make Oddero wines. “Poderi e Cantine Oddero” (Oddero Estate and Winery) is a historic name among Barolo producers. Run for generations by men, it is now in the hands of Mariacristina and Mariavittoria, the daughters of Giacomo Oddero, Barolo patriarch and a man whose fame reaches beyond the Langhe. The company dedicates its full attention to the winemaking process, blending ancient wisdom and modern production techniques with patience and tenacity: from the pruning of the vines to the pressing of the grapes, up to the ageing of selected vintages. Oddero vines grow in some of the best and sunniest sites (known as sôri) on the hills in the Barolo and Barbaresco zones and beyond. Read less
