    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 winery believes, that a great wine is made from three elements: territory, grapes, and people. Brilliant garnet-red color, with warmer tinges developing over time. Unmistakeable bouquet, very pleasant, intense yet ethereal, very persistent, at times spiced, with aromas of truffles, liquorice and dried flowers. Dry taste, with important, full tannins.

    Variety Description

    Nebbiolo is a red Italian wine grape variety predominantly associated with the Piedmont region where it makes the (DOCG) wines of Barolo, Barbaresco, Gattinara and Ghemme. Nebbiolo produces lightly-colored red wines which can be highly tannic in youth. As they age, the wines reveal aromas and flavors such as violets, tar, wild herbs, cherries, raspberries, truffles, tobacco, and prunes. Nebbiolo wines can require years of aging to balance the tannins with other characteristics.

    Country Description

    Italy is home to some of the oldest wine-producing regions in the world, and Italian wines are known worldwide for their broad variety. Italy, closely followed by France, is the world’s largest wine producer by volume. Italy's Ministry of Agriculture and Forestry (MIPAAF), has documented over 350 grapes and granted them "authorized" status. There are more than 500 other documented varieties in circulation as well. Some of the more famous grapes include Pinot Grigio, Trebbiano, Garganega, Nero d'Avola, Sangiovese and Corvina. Grapes are grown all the way from Peidmont and Veneto in north, through Tuscany all the way including Sicily in the south.The three most iconic Italian wines are Barolo, Barbaresco, and Brunello di Montalcino.
