"In Burgundy terms, this is the Oddero’s ‘village wine’, made from fruit grown in a variety of vineyards within the Barolo area. In the Oddero’s case, blessed as they are by an incredible inheritance of quality sites, these vineyards include Bricco Fiasco, a very well-regarded vineyard in Castiglione Falletto often bottled singly by other producers. The vines are mature, which is an important determining factor of quality; high quality fruit from mature vines, traditional vinification (long maceration and aging in large barrels for 30 months, twice the minimum), gives us textbook Barolo. The combination of vineyards in both of the sides of the appellation gives a wine with medium structure, classic aromas and flavors (wild strawberry, red currants, orange peel, cedar, Ceylon cinnamon, and tealeaves. This of course will age very well for as long as you can resist, certainly up to 15 years and more in great vintages, but I also drink it young, particularly in fresher vintages, with red meats or aged cheeses." -Oliver McCrum
