Oddero Barolo 2003

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

The nose opens with a huge note of wild strawberry confiture and billows of church candle and incense with just a bit of alcohol showing 2+ Round in the mouth and a touch soft though the slightly astringent tannins offer a bit of a bite on the back end 2+ A bit muddled on the palate, lacking a bit of precision with a bit of detracting heat showing through the fairly rich and spicy strawberry fruit edged in dry soil tones 2+ Very grippy finish shows a bit of bitter tannin that offers contrast to the sweet fruit that ends on a finale of savory seeds 2+ 88pts

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
