Poderi e Cantine Oddero was established in the late 18th century by the Oddero family, who have lived in La Morra since the first half of that century. In the 1890s, Giovanni Battista Oddero began vinifying grapes, which lead to the winery’s establishment. Later, his sons, Lorenzo and Luigi followed in his footsteps. It was the first Giacomo Oddero, who started selling wine in bottles. Yet, in the story of Oddero, one cannot pass up the second Giacomo Oddero, who renovated the ancient farm and began elevating the quality and prestige of the region’s wine. Today, his legacy lives on through his daughter, Mariacristina, and his grandchildren, Isabella and Pietro, who represent the seventh generation of vinicultural tradition.
Oddero Barolo ‘Brunate’ 2008
Good fresh, deep medium red. Redcurrant, plum, brown spices, coffee, truffle and mellow nutty oak on the nose. Sweet, silky and pliant, with considerable sex appeal and early perfume to the red fruit and mellow caramel oak flavors. Finishes with broad, sweet tannins and noteworthy persistence. Antonio Galloni
From 60 year old vines in La Morra’s famous Brunate vineyard. Aged in 20 Hl oak barrels for about 30 months. Bottling takes place at the end of the summer, with a further year of bottle ageing before release on the market.
