A Structured and Persistent Barolo Riserva
Set deep in the heart of the UNESCO World Heritage Site of the Langhe Hills
, the Oddero
estate expands over 35 hectares, of which 16.5 hectares are dedicated to the cultivation of high-quality Nebbiolo, used to produce award-winning Barolo
wines. Run by the 7th generation of winemakers in the Oddero family, the estate has been practicing organic viticulture since 2008, officially begining the organic conversion of Nebbiolo wines in 2011. The Barolo DOCG Vignarionda Riserva 2007
from Oddero is a 100% Nebbiolo
wine made from grapes grown in a southern-facing vineyard of 0.77 hectares, located on top of a hill, 360 meters above sea level. The grapes are harvested and the bunches selected manually before they undergo sorting on a conveyor belt in the winery. After destemming and crushing, the must enters 50 hl vats, where they undergo alcoholic fermentation with daily racking for 19 days. The wines undergo malolactic fermentation and maturation in Austrian oak for 40 months, before the bottled wines are stored in racks at a controlled temperature of 15 °C for 10 years before release.
The Barolo DOCG Vignarionda Riserva 2007
displays a beautiful garnet red color in the glass. On the nose, this Barolo wine reveals a complex bouquet, full of dark fruit, blackberries and rose, along with notes of balsamic, tobacco and licorice. On the palate, the wine shows off its firm, structured tannins, beautifully balanced with a pleasant freshness. The finish is persistent, with long-lasting flavors and textures.
