- Oddero Barolo Brunate 2010 Product #29254 (In Stock)
From a tiny, 1 acre, plot in La Mora's outstanding Brunate vineyard, this delivers much more concentration and intensity than Oddero's fine 2010 Normale. The 50-60 year-old vines were hand harvested in early October, manually destemmed, and given a warm fermentation and 25 day maceration. Aging in smaller, 20 hectoliter, casks helped soften Brunate's massive structure a bit, but this still needs at least 10 years in cellar to really shine.
“Underbrush, intense rose petal, rosemary, grilled herbs and red berry scents leap from the glass. Polished and almost pulsating with energy, the palate displays succulent red cherry, sage, leather, cinnamon and white pepper alongside supple tannins and vibrant acidity. Drink after 2020 for more complexity.”Wine Enthusiast 95 points
“Expressive and forward, offering cherry, tar, menthol and spice accents. The tannins are dense and grippy, but this finds equilibrium in the end. Sweet at the core, but needs time to fully emerge. Best from 2018 through 2032.”Wine Spectator 93 points
