Vigna Rionda Riserva Nebbiolo 2017

Excellent clarity. Austere at this stage. Ripe tannins yet to integrate. Needs plenty of cellar time. Quite masculine. Like your mom. — a month ago

Rombone Barbaresco Nebbiolo 2018

Figli Luigi Oddero, the Barolo producer in La Morra currently markets one Barbareso and all of the fruit comes from approximately 5 acres of vines they own in the Rombone MGA in Treiso.

Popped and poured. The 2018 “Rombone” pours a light ruby color with a transparent core; medium+ viscosity with no staining of the tears. On the nose, this is developing and already very pretty with Luxardo cherry, pomegranate, red flowers, dried earth and mild spices. On the palate, the wine is bone dry with medium+ tannin and medium+ acid. Confirming the notes from the nose. The finish is medium+ and grippy. A lovely Barbaresco showing the elegance and juiciness of the vintage. Drink now and through 2038.

Convento Barolo Nebbiolo 2017

Presented double-blind. The wine is bright garnet moving towards an orangish rim and a transparent core; medium+ viscosity and no staining of the tears nor were there signs of sediment. On the nose, the wine is developing with notes of ripe Morello cherry, bruised raspberries, some tar, some red flowers, dried herbs and some dry gravelly earth for good measure. On the palate, the wine is bone dry with high, nearly rip-your-face-off tannin and medium(+?) acid. Confirming the notes from the nose. The fruit is generous on the palate and almost has a sweet attack. Due to the color, nose and structure, initial conclusions have me thinking Nebbiolo or Sangiovese but since I get no staining at all and the tannins are so high, I wasn’t comfortable calling Sangiovese. So I called Nebbiolo, from Italy, from the Langhe, 2020…and I stopped there. I thought it might be a Langhe Nebbiolo from a really great producer in Barolo and maybe the vintage was playing with me. Welp…I was more than in the ballpark. “Convento” is Luigi Oddero’s second wine made from fruit predominately sourced from La Morra. Drink now with some patience and through 2032. — 4 months ago

Initial blind call of Nebbiolo, then went to Quintarelli Ama for the depth. Just bought several of these so I’m happy. 😃 — a month ago

Barolo Nebbiolo 2019

The fruit for the Oderro Poderi e Cantine “classico” comes from a combination of the Bricco Chiesa in La Morra and the Bricco Fiasco in Castiglione Falletto MGAs. The former being considered Oddero’s “home vineyard”.

Poured into a decanter about 30min before service. In the glass, the wine displays a beautiful ruby color with a transparent core; medium+ viscosity with no staining of the tears. On the nose, the wine is developing with very pretty notes of Montmorency cherry, cranberry, pomegranate, a bed of roses, orange peel, fresh sage, eucalyptus and crushed rock. On the palate, the wine is bone dry with high tannin and medium+ acid. Confirming the notes from the nose. The finish is long, drying and grippy. This is all about balance and freshness. These are quite giving already but undoubtedly have a long life ahead. Drink now with patience or through 2044.
