2013 Oddero Rocche din Castiglione Barolo, Piedmont, ITALY. 750ml
Wine Spectator: 94 Points
"High-toned aromas of floral sandalwood cherry and spice are matched to a supple texture and elegant profile. Lean firm and lingering with an aftertaste of fruit spice and mineral. Best from 2021 through 2036."
James Suckling: 94 Points
"This is another tannic 2013 with lots of dried berry coffee and cedar character. Full body chewy and rich. Long and flavorful. Needs four to five years to soften."
Wine Advocate: 94 Points
"The Rocche di Castiglione vineyard extends to both Monforte d'Alba and Castiglione Falletto but Oddero farms a parcel in the latter. The vines at this site are up to 50 years old. The 2013 Barolo Rocche di Castiglione shows impressive linearity and focus with tight berry and spice aromas. Those tones will undoubtedly flesh out and take on more volume with time. This elegant Barolo promises a long aging future ahead."
