Oddero Barolo 2012
Wine SpectatorFragrant, with rose, cherry, licorice and spice notes, accented by a hint of tar. Though elegant, this features a firm base of dusty tannins and ends balanced and earthy. Best from 2018 through 2030. 4,000 cases made.
Wine EnthusiastBalsamic herb, toast, oak, exotic spice and berry aromas emerge in the glass. The palate is still rather closed and austere showing oak, licorice and tart cherry alongside bracing tannins that leave an astringent finish. Give the tannins a few years to soften than drink before to capture the remaining fruit.
