About The Wine
Poderi e Cantine Oddero is a name which has roots in the Piedmonte region back to the 18th century.
A producer of great renown, the Oddero family has vineyard holdings in some of the great terroirs acrosss Langhe, Barolo and Barbaresco. The current patriarch of the family, Giacomo Oddero, handed over the running of the family business to his daughter, Mariacristina, in 1990 after a much-respected tenure as proprietor.
Now Mariacristina has handed over to her children, Isabella and Pietro, as the seventh generation takes the family business into the modern era, they are flourishing as a label that respects both traditional production and a more modern, sustainable approach to farming.
The Barolo Classico comes from some hallowed turf in La Morra and Castiglione Falletto. It's gorgeous. It has all the power and structure you could want in a Nebbiolo, with dazzling bright red fruits and cleansing, refreshing acidity. It will evolve beautifully over time given the chance but drinks surprisingly well in its youth, also.
