Description: The Oddero family have been active in the Barolo wine trade since the 1800's. Luigi and his brother Giacomo co-owned the Oddero estate until 2006 when insurmountable tensions drove them apart, and the family holdings were divided roughly equally between the two. Luigi Oddero passed away in 2010, therefore his wife Lena hired a man named Dante Scaglioni—a local winemaker who had worked for 25 years for the legendary Bruno Giacosa winery. It is through Dante’s guidance that the estates wines have reached new heights of quality and complexity.
The Figli Luigi Oddero 2016 Barolo is a wine of enormous depth and character. It delivers the best of the Nebbiolo playlist with sultry red fruit at its core followed by aromas of dark spice, licorice, candied orange peel and spent embers.
