Oddero Barolo 1970

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

The aromatics here present quite a contrast with a fresh, crisp celery note intertwined in the sweet black cherry core of fruit. There are hints of sweet tea, veal stock and fresh shitakes adding complexity but there is also a touch of rum on the nose that is a little off-putting. On the palate this is large scaled if soft with a wonderfully plush texture to the cherry and rhubarb fruit with hints of tar and subtle spice tones drawing out the moderately long finish. 90pts

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

Fungal nose with piles of beef bouillon and a hint of brown sugar. A smooth and refreshing complex wine with hints of smoked bacon, damp soil, earth, soy sauce, leather and oak. There's even a hint of sweetness. Good acidity which is not overpowering this balanced and extremely pleasant wine.

So interesting b/c the aromas make it appear as if you are about to sip a sweet wine - sweet nectarines, butterscotch and brown sugar crystals on the nose, palate has softened, no harsh tannins, light cherry flavors, dried tea leaves with a little funkiness to it, hints of earthy mushrooms, finish is fabulous
