PRODUCT OVERVIEW/REVIEW:
Poderi e Cantine Oddero has a history that dates back to to end of the 18th century, when Giovanni Battista Oddero and his sons Lorenzo and Luigi began to make wine under their own name crafted from the Nebbiolo varietal sourced from their vineyards in La Morra. They helped to lay the groundwork for the establishment of Piedmont as one of the world’s most revered wine regions.

Today the estate, under the guidance of current caretakers Giacomo and his daughters Mariavittoria and Mariacristina cultivates 35 hectares of the best cru of the Langhe and Asti territories to make some of Piedmont’s most renowned wines: Barolo, Barbaresco, Langhe Nebbiolo, Dolcetto d’Alba, Barbera d’Alba, Barbera d’Asti, and Moscato.* The family’s philosophy that “quality reveals itself in the details” is manifested by their reverence for terroir, attention to details, and respect for modern production techniques.

This wine exhibits the luscious fruit characters and exceptional balance that one would expect to find in a well-crafted Barbera. Sourced from vineyards in La Morra and Castiglione Falletto, it is fermented in stainless steel and aged in large Slavonian oak barrels for 12 months. Medium-to-full-bodied, it has aromas and flavors of black cherries, black raspberries and cassis, with accents of wet stone, savory herbs, and a hint of white pepper. Vibrant acidity gives the wine freshness while soft tannins make it immensely gluggable. 

92 points, Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate:
“The Oddero 2018 Barbera d'Alba Superiore impresses from the first sip thanks to its richness, smoothness and seamless nature. This is a terrific wine with enough natural acidity to give symmetry to the dark fruit. On the nose, it delivers generous blackberry, spice and tar. These balanced results make this a versatile food wine to pair with white meat, pasta or pizza.” (7/20)
