For fans of Nebbiolo, the name Oddero is synonymous with Barolo. Giacomo Oddero‘s innovation and enterprise made him a pioneer in winemaking in the Langhe. Today his daughters, Mariacristina and Mariavittoria ensure the family name maintains its role as a world-leader in the production of one of Italy’s most highly-revered and best-loved wines.

This Friday, Vino is excited to feature two Oddero Barolo wines in its FREE afternoon tasting, Barolo 2004 and Barolo Rocche di Castiglione 2004. The difference? The first Barolo is made of Nebbiolo from two vineyards, La Morra’s Santa Maria Bricco Chiesa and the Bricco Fiasco in Castiglione Falletto. The two wines are kept apart as they age in barrels for 30 months, then blended in the spring. The Barolo Rocche di Castiglione comes from 50 year-old Nebbiolo vines in much smaller plot in Castiglione Falletto measuring just 0.66 hectares. This plot of land produces one of Oddero’s finest Baroli.
