Luigi Oddero Barolo 2004
The Barolo wine par excellence, it is made with Nebbiolo grapes coming from three vineyards located in different towns of the DOCG area: La Morra, Castiglione Falletto and Serralunga d’Alba. Vinified separately in large steel and/or concrete tanks for one year, it is also aged separately in large-size French oak barrels. It is then left to rest in bottle for another 12 months before release.
Bright garnet-red colored with a pale orange tinge. An unmistakable, intense, persistent and very pleasant bouquet. Aromas of sweet spices, soft fruit, mountain hay and licorice. Dry, soft and velvety on the palate. Great structure and aromatic persistence.
Best served at about 65° F in a large balloon wine glass. It is excellent with game and meat in general and pairs wonderfully with cheese, both fresh and aged.
Definitely an age-worthy wine, especially in the best vintages.
