Oddero Barolo 1979

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

At decanting: Musty, sweet, and herbal, on the nose with leather, iron, and cigar ash flavors Rich and quite mahogany smelling on the shrill nose, which shows a bit of a bit spicy, character with salty, seaweed, and nice licorice aromas. Bright with plenty of acid, on entry and lots of evolved fruit, flavors on the palate, which does dry out fairly quickly leaving little fruit left if retaining a nice, clear texture. There’s some fruit left on the finish but this is mostly old, slightly beefy fruit. Was a nice transparent wine once. 78pts

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
