An excellent introduction to the Nebbiolo's of Luigi Oddero. Beautifully made.


Just like knowing the fruit sources of a Bourgogne, you need to know the fruit source for a Langhe Nebbiolo. In this case we see fruit coming from the Santa Maria in La Morra and the Castiglione Falletto Cru Rocche Rivera (around the corner from Rocche di Castiglione. La Morra providing the fruit backbone and Castiglione Falletto structure. Sitting on the savoury side of the spectrum, it has an underlying perfume of musk and rose with tar & liquorice coming to play. Layered, meaty, earthy and very complex. This is an excellent Neb that deserved the 14 month maturation + 1 year in bottle before release. More press wine goes into the Langhe giving it a slightly rustic mouthfeel compared with the very polished DOCG Barolo and Barbaresco wines.

About Luigi Oddero

Since 1878 the Oddero family has been synonymous with tradition and high quality Nebbiolo wines from the Langhe’s top vineyards, and it was in 1951 when brothers Giacomo and Luigi Oddero began bottling their family’s wines.

Like so many of the great estates of the world Luigi Oddero, although, born only recently, through a family divide, has an incredible history. Once a combined estate with Oddero, Luigi went his separate way, taking with him an incredible set of vineyards across 32 hectare of prime vineyards, including Castiglione Falletto’s Rocche dei Rivera & Serralunga d’Alba’s Vigna Rionda.

With Luigi’s loss in 2010, Lena Oddero (nata Gavrilova) is now managing the estate, aided by her faithful team of Francesco Versio ex-Giacosa  & Dante Scaglione still consulting to Bruno Giacosa. The wines are traditionally and respectfully made in stainless-steel & cement tanks, & then aged in large Gamba oak botti. Their fruit is grown in the villages of Treiso (for Barbaresco), La Morra, Barolo, Castiglione Falletto and Serralunga d’Alba.

Now with Luciano Botti, still looking after the vineyards, and, Francesco Versio and Dante Scaglione, alumni of Bruno Giacosa looking after the wine the new-old estate is going from strength to strength.

The two Cru wines available in Australia, an epic Riserva from Vigna Rionda and a Barbaresco from Treiso, the Rombone Cru. The Barolo Normale and Langhe Nebbiolo (declassified Cru Barolo) are excellent examples showing excellent stepwise quality to price value.

Where in the World is Does it Come From?

The Langhe Nebbiolo sees fruit from ‘Santa Maria’ in La Morra and ‘Rocche Rivera’ in Castiglione Falletto. Yup, Cru gear!
