A strong and well-rounded wine, Barolo "Villero" by Oddero reflects a soil richer in clay and limestone than that of Rocche di Castiglione, located in the same town. The bouquet offers intriguing and dense scents of violet, red fruits, cocoa and liquorice. The complex tannic texture displays a delicately sweet finish.
Best to be enjoyed with
Barolo "Villero" by Oddero is simply wonderful with game birds such as Quail, Goose, Pheasant, or Duck, as well as Pork Chops, due to the tannin in this red wine-loving rich fatty meats. It needs to be opened at least 2 hours before drinking. Pour the nectar into a crystal decanter.
The Winery: Oddero
Poderi e Cantine Oddero is a historical brand among Barolo producers. The winery’s roots go back to the end of the 18th century when our ancestors began to make wine under their own name. The wine cellars, located in the frazione Santa Maria of La Morra, are raised up on a natural terrace and overlook the hills of the Langhe. Immersed in a sea of beautifully tended vineyards, our winery cultivates 35 hectares of the best cru of the Langhe and Asti territories to make some of Piedmont’s most renown wines: Barolo, Barbaresco, Nebbiolo, Dolcetto, Barbera and Moscato. Traditional knowledge and modern production techniques. Tenacity, patience, and respect for our territory and its raw materials.
