Oddero Dolcetto d'Alba 2011 Product #26727 (In Stock)
Oddero Dolcetto d'Alba 2011 Oddero Dolcetto d'Alba 2011

This beautiful Dolcetto has just gotten better and better with a little time in bottle.  Big aromas of licorice, lavender, black cherry and plum, nutmeg and anise.  In the mouth, cherry and black raspberry fruit gushes across your palate with spice and flower-like anise notes adding complexity.  The finish is mouthwateringly juicy with supple tannins and suggestions of sandalwood and bitter almond lingering nicely.  Just yummy, lovely, stuff.

"This red bursts with juicy cherry, raspberry and a touch of black pepper. Reveals some serious tannins underneath for support. Drink now through 2015.”Wine Spectator 89 points

Oddero Barbera d'Alba 2010 Product #27357 (In Stock)
Oddero Barbera d'Alba 2010 Oddero Barbera d'Alba 2010

For this last few vintages, Oddero’s classy Barbera d’Alba has been on a hot streak.  The 2007 made Wine Spectator’s Top 100 list and the 2009 (the last release reviewed), was a rock-solid 90 pointer that became a huge Chain Bridge Cellars customer favorite.  Given how different the 2009 and 2010 vintages were, it’s a bit surprising how similar the just arrived 2010 is to those previous great releases.

Once again, this is an honest, fresh, take on one of Italy’s most versatile food wines.  Aromas of bright cherry, smoke, and a touch of wood spice lead to juicy flavors of red fruit, fresh cut flowers, and earthy spice.  Tangy sour cherry acidity gives the flavors a nice lift and makes your mouth water on the long finish with just the right dash of tannin at the end.  The kind of red that makes almost any Italian food better, but will be just as much fun with a burger or garlicky roast chicken.

Oddero Barolo Normale 2008 Product #27358 (In Stock)
Oddero Barolo Normale 2008 Oddero Barolo Normale 2008

Whenever I taste wine from Oddero, the word “honest” keeps cropping up in my notes.  The wines here are always clear, direct, expressions of their grapes, sites, and vintages, although the 2008 Barolo breaks the mold a bit on that last point.  In what was mostly an elegant, silky, vintage, this is a big-boned Barolo with uncommon power and depth.  Needs a little time, but then look out!

“Blueberry with raspberries and lemon rind aromas. Full body, with well-integrated tannins and a fruity finish. Subtle and polished. Needs a year or two to soften the tannins.”  James Suckling 91 points

“The 2008 Barolo is quite striking in the vintage. Black cherries, plums, spices, menthol and tobacco are some of the many notes that emerge from the glass in this big wine. This is a decidedly large-scaled entry-level Barolo, but all the elements are very much in the right place. Firm tannins frame the muscular close. This is an impressive showing among its peers. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2023.” Wine Advocate 90 points

Oddero Barolo Normale 2007 Product #26729 (In Stock)
Oddero Barolo Normale 2007 Oddero Barolo Normale 2007

Loaded with dark red spicy leather, rose, and silky cherry aromas and flavors and firm, powerful, tannins.  This is superb.  Needs some air or cellar time now, but then watch out!

“This lean, angular Barolo is tightly wound, with cherry, tobacco and underbrush notes. Though firmly tannic, this is balanced and long, in a chewy, sinewy style. Best from 2015 through 2030.”Wine Spectator 91 points
