“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.”

While the parcels selected for Sori Paitin produce Nebbiolo that most consider more like a fine, brooding Barolo, the much lighter Starda from the remaining parcels is a stunning example of the diversity of Nebbiolo but meant to be enjoyed within a half dozen or so years of release. I haven’t tasted Nebbiolo at anywhere near this price point this good in years.
Nicholas #5 Wine of the Year, 2021 – (Large Format Bottles)
Think of this as like choosing the top one or two barrels from what is already a grand cru vineyard from arguably the greatest ever Piedmont vintage. The aromatics are so intense and noteworthy, that I was reluctant to even take a sip. Of course, I eventually relented. This wine is all class and harmony and I imagine more universally appealing than most cru Barolo. Despite the decade of age, this bottle easily has another decade ahead of it.
