Oddero is one of the great, historic, traditional Barolo houses with a long history spanning over 200 years. There are mentions of the Oddero family in La Morra as far back as the 1700s, though the family was likely there even before that point. The winery was among the first producers to estate bottle their Barolo – in the late 1800’s, a time when most wine was sold in bulk either by demijohn or barrel. There are even records of their wine being sold to the USA at that point as well. It was Giacomo Oddero (born 1926) and his brother Luigi (born 1928) who brought the winery into the modern era.

The 2018 Barolo is terrific. In 2018, the Odderos were not completely convinced of the results across all their sites. Ultimately, they blended all of their vineyard designates into the straight Barolo, with the exception of the Brunate and a Riserva from Vigna Rionda. In the glass, their 2018 is captivating. Exotic aromatics, bright red berry fruit and vibrant acids give the 2018 its considerable allure. Vineyard sites are: Fiasco, Bricco Chiesa, Capalot, Bussia, Villero, Rocche di Castiglione and Monvigliero. Look for this to be one of the under the radar gems of the vintage. I loved it. In fact, the Oddero Barolo is one of the few 2018s readers should not miss. It is a very strong 'buy' in my book. Drink 2026-2043; Rating: 93 Points, Antonio Galloni; Vinous

Spiced sweet strawberry, aniseed and dried flower perfume, a distinct almond and hazelnut character, plus a cinch of orange peel to go. It’s medium-bodied, fresh and spicy, again the orange peel perfume and subtle bitterness through it, with fine brick dust tannin, red fruits and juicy orange acidity, and a long dusty, yet kind of succulent finish. It’s an excellent wine from a tricky vintage, and I reckon you could say it has a classic feel and elegance that should serve it well over the years to come.
