Special Deal on Oddero Barolo
It’s impossible to give a precise date when the business was established as the vineyards and the farmhouse have always belonged to the Oddero family. Documents, memories and photographs take it back to the brothers Lorenzo and Luigi, born in the early Nineteenth century. It is thanks to them that the Nebbiolo grapes of La Morra were first vinified, probably in 1878, although the wine was initially sold in bulk rather than in bottles.
Lorenzo Oddero (born in La Morra in 1821 – deceased in 1903) is the great great – grandfather of the current owners. After Lorenzo and Luigi, Giacomo Oddero continued to produce Barolo in La Morra, followed by Giovanni Oddero and Maria Badellino, his wife, and, by Giacomo and Luigi, and now by Mariavittoria and winemaker Mariacristina.
History and passion surround this family owned and operated vineyard, which is deeply rooted in the wines. One sip of Maria’s Barolo and instantly you are transported to the vineyards that surround the village of La Morra, from which the winery is located. The rustic nuances and subtle use of oak makes these wines classic and very traditional in style. The wines can be enjoyed young as well as age gracefully for many years.

2003 Fratelli Oddero Barolo DOCG- 88pts WS
This very traditional Barolo is very pruny and raisiny on the nose. Full-bodied and chewy, with a dried fruit aftertaste. A little austere, but with impressive concentration. Drinks well now but can get even better with some time.
