Oddero Langhe Bianco 2007

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Fruity on the nose with floral tones and pear fruit. Huge acids in the mouth give this great cut with a faceted quality to the mineral laden white fruits. This is assertively mineral on the backend and into the long finish. 89pts

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

This is a new bottling which begins where the story of Oddero Langhe Chardonnay ends. The previous white was a pure chardonnay from Serralunga that saw barrel-aged. This wine proved too big, alcoholic, and over-ripe for the Oder’s taste so they have switched to a blend, Currently 80% Chardonnay from La Morra, and 20% a changing mix based on Riesling that is aged primarily in Stainless though a tiny percentage o overflow sees some wood. In a effort to emphasize the bright and fresh character desired the vines are planted low on the hillside to prevent hydric stress and significant leaf cover is allowed to preserve the bright acids and mineral character of the grapes. Smoky mineral tones dominate the nose with the fruit hinting at banana peel before opening with notes of apple, pear and lemon 3 Pretty in the mouth with w rich yet elegant feel balanced with ripe acids that offer god cut 2+ White peach upon entry then turning flinty, a bit tight still 2 Really rounds out on the finish with a wave of fruit that extends the length, excellent purity 2 89pts
