    Justerini & Brooks Tasting note
    Luigi Oddero, Barolo, Vigna Rionda, 2012

    Sturdy and statuesque in structure but the tannic framework is hidden almost entirely by fleshy bramble, loganberry and plum flavours. The rich, earthy fruit is enlivened by a thick seam of salt and mineral elements. Mighty and profound. One of the great original Crus of Barolo. Situated in Serralunga, Luigi Oddero’s parcel is in the original part of the vineyard at the top of the hill where the soil is poor and stony, benefiting from a south/ south-east exposure. The wine is aged for three years in large used oak casks and two years in bottle.

    Luigi Oddero

    An estate going places fast, we believe Luigi Oddero e Figli has the potential to be one of the very great estates of the Langhe. Its story started in 2006 when Luigi split off from the Oddero estate with 30ha. Luigi sadly passed away in 2009 but his wife Lena is now running the azienda alongside children Maria and Giovanni. Dante Scaglione, of Giacosa fame, is consultant winemaker and in 2016 Francesco Versio joined the team as full time head winemaker. Also formerly of Bruno Giacosa Francesco is considered one of the brightest young winemaking talents of the region. Methods are traditional here, long gentle extractions followed by ageing in large old oak casks for up to three years. Blessed with some truly great vineyards and some of the best winemaking talent around, the Luigi Oddero future looks bright indeed. Vivid, elegant wines with great intensity and purity of flavour.
