James Suckling - Jamessuckling.com:

"Blueberry with raspberries and lemon rind aromas. Full body, with well-integrated tannins and a fruity finish. Subtle and polished. Needs a year or two to soften the tannins." (01/13)

Antonio Galloni - Vinous:

"The 2008 Barolo is quite striking in the vintage. Black cherries, plums, spices, menthol and tobacco are some of the many notes that emerge from the glass in this big wine. This is a decidedly large-scaled entry-level Barolo, but all the elements are very much in the right place. Firm tannins frame the muscular close. This is an impressive showing among its peers. Drinking window: 2015 - 2023" (10/12)

Product Description:

"Very little on the nose. Traditional, challenging tannins. Where's the pleasure? It's all structure and no fruit. Drink from 2013-2015 (RH)" (07/13) - 15 out of 20 Points, Jancis Robinson's Purple Pages.

Estate: "It is hard to say for sure exactly when our winemaking began. 18th century muncipal records show that the vineyards and estate have belonged to the Oddero family for centuries. Documents, notarial deeds and pictures can take us back as far as our ancestors Lorenzo and Giovanni Battista, who between the 18th and 19th centuries started making wine from the grapes of our vineyards located around La Morra, a picturesque hill-town with views out over the whole Alta Langa."

"It is thanks to them that Oddero wine got its start in life, first sold in small casks and demijohns, then from 1878 in bottles. After 150 years of activity, the historical winery is run today by sisters Mariacristina and Mariavittoria, who are passionate about wine. They took over from their father Giacomo and are assisted by their children, whose youth gives freshness and innovation to the wisdom of tradition." - Winery

This wine was also rated 89 Points by the Wine Spectator.
