Poderi Oddero Barolo DOCG 2018

Critical Acclaim: 93 pts Robert Parker's Wine Advocate; 93 pts Vinous; 91 pts James Suckling. 

Tasting Notes: "The 2018 Barolo is a pretty wine that flaunts elegance, balance and a linear personality that drives the wine clean over the palate. Oak renderings of cedarwood and spice are woven together with wild cherry, cassis and crushed stone. This mid-weight wine is long and polished on the finish. There is an immediate quality to this bottle that means you could drink it in the medium term if desired."- Robert Parker's Wine Advocate. 

"The 2018 Barolo is terrific. In 2018, the Odderos were not completely convinced of the results across all their sites. Ultimately, they blended all of their vineyard designates into the straight Barolo, with the exception of the Brunate and a Riserva from Vigna Rionda. In the glass, their 2018 is captivating. Exotic aromatics, bright red berry fruit and vibrant acids give the 2018 its considerable allure. Vineyard sites are: Fiasco, Bricco Chiesa, Capalot, Bussia, Villero, Rocche di Castiglione and Monvigliero. Look for this to be one of the under the radar gems of the vintage. I loved it. In fact, the Oddero Barolo is one of the few 2018s readers should not miss. It is a very strong 'buy' in my book. "- Vinous. 

"A juicy, medium-bodied Barolo with clean red-fruit and some dried-walnut character. The tannins are still a little firm, so give it another year in bottle. Try from 2023."- James Suckling. 

Varietal: Nebbiolo.
