Oddero's Barolos are justly renowned, showing remarkable depth, finesse and complexity across the board. The single-vineyard offerings are outstanding, but then for earlier drinking so is this village wine at a more affordable price point. Blended from various top vineyards it is extremely complex but approachable on release.

Mid ruby with orange tinges. A perfect amalgam of perfumed, sweet cherry and herb liqueur with saline hints and a touch of oak, but more like an afterthought than anything else. Succulent cherry, which ends on sour-cherry notes. Firm, finely grained bitter-sweet tannins. Concentrated and tightly knit and enormously long.

From the Bricco Chiesa and Capalot vineyards, both in La Morra, and Fiasco in Castiglione Falletto. Grapes from the different vineyards are fermented and aged separately, the first year in Stockinger casks of Austrian oak, after which the wines are blended together and aged another year in large oak barrel, followed by six years in concrete.
