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.
The Luigi Oddero's Barolo is produced with Nebbiolo grapes coming from three vineyards located in La Morra, Castiglione Falletto and Serralunga d’Alba, all in the DOCG area in Piedmont. This Barolo with its unmistakable, intense, persistent and very pleasant aroma has an excellent tannic texture that completes the structure and makes it suitable for a long time aging.
