    When the time is right to drink this Oddero Barolo, decant it for at least an hour while you prepare a grilled pizza with black, oil-cured olives, plum tomato, thick mozzarella slices, all brushed with EVOO and sprinkled with flaky sea salt. The pairing is other-worldly. Tip your hats to the truffley earthiness of the wine with duck confit raviolis in an oxtail broth. Not craving meat? Not a problem; a risotto made with ceps mushrooms is perfect for this Piedmontese red. As are sauteed sweetbreads with grilled, shaved fennel and caramelized cippoline onions. We're not done yet! Fill your glasses once (or twice) more and enjoy them with an Italian Boschetto al tartufo cheese. Your taste buds will thank you.

    Antonio Galloni's Vinous:  " A blend of fruit from Chiesa, Capalot and Fiasco, Oddero's 2015 Barolo is vibrant, expressive and wonderfully inviting. Bright acids and lifted, floral notes lend a real sense of energy to this crystalline, super-finessed entry-level Barolo from Oddero. Translucent and weightless in the glass, but with good tannic grip, the 2015 has a ton to offer. This is a such gorgeous Barolo. Drink date: 2020 - 2035." Feb 2019

    Winery:  "Brilliant garnet-red color, with warmer tinges developing over time. Unmistakeable bouquet, very pleasant, intense yet ethereal, very persistent, at times spiced, with aromas of truffles, liquorice and dried flowers. Dry taste, with important, full tannins."
