Since 1878 the Oddero family has been synonymous with tradition and high quality Nebbiolo wines from the Langhe 's top vineyards, and it was in 1951 when brothers Giacomo and Luigi Oddero began bottling their family's wines. Located in Santa Maria, a frazione of La Morra, in the heart of the Barolo zone, this distinguished family firm under the direction of Mariacristina and Mariavittoria Oddero has quietly become one of the most consistent and most highly regarded of all Barolo houses. The quality level is routinely excellent and has been steadily improving for the past decade.
Grape variety: 100% Nebbiolo
Tasting Note: Bright ruby-red colored with a pale orange tinge. Delicate, intense and gentle aromas. Scents of wilted rose, sweet spices and small fruit. Dry, soft and nearly velvety on the palate, great finesse, balance and elegance.
Ageing potential: This wine is ready to be enjoyed in its second year after harvest. However, it will age beautifully, as it goes on expressing its great qualities and noble austerity even after 8 to 10 years of bottle ageing.
Serving temperature and food pairing: Best served at about 18° C in a large balloon wine glass. It is excellent with roast meats, game, poultry and meat in general. It pairs wonderfully with risotto, tajarin pasta and cheese, both fresh and aged.
