Oddero Barolo 2013
This strikes a nice balance between fruity and savory elements, delivering cherry, strawberry, floral, licorice and tobacco notes on a delicate frame. Harmonious and enjoyable now, though the refined tannins suggest that this will benefit from another year or two in bottle. Best from 2019 through 2032. 2,400 cases made.
Menthol, aromatic herb, purple flower and new leather scents meld together in this wine. On the firm, focused, palate, clove, star anise and espresso hints back up Marasca cherry and cranberry flavors while tightly knit but refined tannins and bright acidity provide support.
