Tasting Note:

Full-bodied dark broad fruit that glossily covers a solid structural foundation. A distinct chalky mineral note adds a surprising freshness to the full hedgerow berry and cherry fruit. Velvety but deep, serious and highly complex, with wave after wave of bramble, tayberry, morello cherry and earthier undergrowth, rock and mineral notes rolling across the palate. The most accomplished and multi-layered Vigna Rionda we have yet to taste from Luigi Oddero. From a prime south-facing parcel at the top of the hill where the soils are very sandy and chalky, planted at 300-340 metres above sea level just above Giovanni Rosso’s plot. A stunning, prime parcel within one of the great historic Crus of Barolo. Aged for 36 months in a large used oak cask (just one 25hl cask was produced) followed by two years in bottle before release.
