12 Current Inventory

95 POINTS, Vinous. "The 2016 Barolo Rocche di Castiglione is a powerful, brooding wine that marries the aromatic top notes of Rocche with the structural underpinnings of Monforte, where Oddero's small strip of vineyards lie. Iron, smoke, incense, dried herbs and flowers give the Rocche stunning aromatic intensity. Deep and structured in feel, the Rocche is another wine in this range that is going to need time to be at its best. Even today, though, it is impressive."

95 POINTS, The Wine Advocate. "The Oddero 2016 Barolo Rocche di Castiglione draws its fruit from Castiglione Falletto from a site with 70-year-old vines. The wine shows enormous precision, balance and attention to detail. The bouquet is vivid and bright with wild berry, grilled herb, cola, crushed mineral and candied orange skin. The aromas are played out with pretty and lasting equilibrium. Like the other Baroli in this collection from the Oddero family, beautiful work has been achieved in terms of tannin integration. The results are firm, but silky nonetheless."
