Moscato d'Asti Oddero 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

Moscato Bianco (white Muscat) is a grape variety with ancient origins, appreciated even by the ancient Romans. The grape ripens in mid-September, and the clusters have round berries with a golden color, shading to a warm amber on the parts exposed to the sun. The grape is distinguished by its unmistakable and delightful aroma, even when eaten as a table grape, and this aroma is the strength and character of the wine, which is delicately sweet and effervescent.

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

Fresh and crisp with gentle orchard fruit tones on the nose framed by hints of powdered sugar, lime leaf, and an herbal top notes, this explodes on the palate with wonderfully aromatic sweet Meyer lemon toned fruit that has great sweet/tart energy right through the long, sugar lengthened, Finish. It's not the greatest wine in the world, but it is incredibly delicious! 90pts

Not balanced at all and I found it too sweet...The nose was floral with hints of lemon and orange. Best with spicy food.

To be great, a Moscato needs two things: balance and minerality. The sweet, floral Muscat grape requires complementary acidity, and minerality gives the wine its complexity. Oddero’s Moscato has both, and it is delightful.

The success of a Moscato relies on its balance and minerality. Acidity is required to compliment the sweet, floral flavors of the Muscat grape. There must be minerality to take the wine to a heightened level of complexity. Oddero accomplished both and the result is delightful.
