    A Small-Production Barolo Wine with Ripe Red Fruit Flavors

    Situated in the heart of the Langhe Hills region of Piedmont, the Oddero family estate includes 35 hectares planted with vines, of which 16.5 hectares are dedicated to high-quality Nebbiolo. It is with this emblematic grape varietal of Piedmont that Oddero produces some of the most celebrated Barolo and Barbaresco wines of the region. Run today by the 7th generation of winemakers in the Oddero family, the estate has relied on organic viticultural practices since 2008 and began converting their Nebbiolo vineyards to organic agricultural in 2011. The Barolo DOCG Brunate 2007 from Oddero is a red wine made exclusively from Nebbiolo grapes grown in a very small 0.4-hectare vineyard with southeastern exposure at an altitude of 300 meters above sea level. The average age of the vines here ranged from 50 to 60 years. The grapes are harvested in the first 10 days of October, carefully selected both in the vineyard and cellar, and then moved into tanks for fermentation and maceration for 25 days at 28° C. Malolactic fermentation takes place in December. The wines are matured in 20 hl oak barrels for 30 months and then aged 1 additional year in the bottle before commercial release.

    The Barolo DOCG Brunate 2007 from Oddero presents a bright ruby color in the glass, tending towards garnet. On the nose, this Barolo wine reveal intense fragrances of roses and violets, along with damp forest floor and mature red fruit. The tannins are very persistent on the palate. Although quite soft in the wine's youth, these tannins show great promise of evolving fabulously over time.

    Wine Advocate-Parker :
    The 2007 Barolo Brunate is a striking wine graced with layers of dark fruit, minerals, menthol and licorice. Darker balsamic notes develop in the glass, weaving beautifully through the layers of fruit. The Brunate possesses remarkable power and precision, not to mention commendable overall harmony. The firm Brunate tannins are in evidence, but there is more than enough fruit to balance the tannins. This is an impressive showing. The real question is, Why aren't all the Oddero wines this great? Anticipated maturity: 2015-2025.
