Winemaker's Notes:

Intense ruby-red color, over time taking on elegant garnet tinges; red fruits, bitter cacao and coffee bouquet, which becomes spicy and gamey with ageing, a characteristic of the sandy and calcareous soil of Vinchio. Full-bodied, with a dry taste, emphasized by the backbone and dense texture; full of character.
My Notes:

About Oddero:

This winery was founded in 1878, in the area of Santa Maria, a hamlet of La Morra. It is one of the oldest producers of Barolo, a family that has kept the distinctive traditional style of winemaking for over a century. Over the generations, the Oddero family has gradually expanded its vineyards to today's impressive 60 hectares, many of which lie in the illustrious Barolo vineyards of Brunate, Rocche di Castiglione, Villero and Mondoca di Bussia. Since 2001, with the help of young and talented winemaker Luca Vaglio, Oddero winery has become one of the leading producers in Barolo.
