1 4.6 5
Discussions of wine style in Piedmont traditionally focused on 'traditional' or 'modern' approaches. Now attention has shifted to single-vineyard expressions, and wines which speak clearly of their origin. See Ian D'Agata's top Barolos and Barbarescos here...

Oddero, Vignarionda, Barolo 2006

Oddero, Vignarionda, Barolo 2006
Along with Brunate, the best Barolo vineyard of all. Traditionally made, with tough tannins: remarkable depth of spicy red berries and roses. Precise and mineral; this will age longer, and better, than you or I. 17.75pts/20 (92/100pts)
