“By any standards, 2007 Barolo is a vintage of which to take note. Forward, packed with rich Nebbiolo fruit yet evidencing good structure, its best wines appear perfect both for wine lovers new to the wines of Piedmont and for conformed Barolistas.” Decanter Magazine
The 2007 Oddero Barolo is undoubtedly one of the stars of this special Barolo vintage: representing both exceptional quality (earning a 19 out of 20 – the equivalent of a 95 point score – and 5 out 5 Stars from Decanter) and rare value (even at $39.99, this is a steal.) Made by the daughters of Giacomo Oddero, Mariacristina and Mariavittoria, the Oddero estate benefits from some of the sunniest sites on the hills in the northern end of the Barolo zone. Given the region’s ardent fanbase, the best wines can be hard to procure, especially in top vintages.
“Classic tarry, earthy Barolo aroma and flavors, with a long fruit and leather finish. Totally harmonious a lovely wine. drink 2011-2020.” 19/20 and 5/5 Stars, Decanter Magazine
