The 2016 Barolo Brunate is a stunning wine that shows Oddero at their very best. Powerful and yet also magically transparent, as only Nebbiolo can be, the Brunate captivates all the senses with a stunning mélange of aromatic depth, richness and pure power. Hints of orange peel, mint and dried flowers develop with time, but more than anything else, the Brunate is a Barolo that is all about nuance. Today, it is positively dazzling. Wow!

La Morra. Just mid ruby with orange tinges. Perfumed, lifted and flowery cherry nose with minerally notes of iron. Subtle, still compact and a little austere on the palate. Truly elegant and long. Bags of grainy tannins complement the long, perfumed, succulent fruit. Real chew and energy on the finish. Elegant and understated and with a youthful austerity.

Township of La Morra – 0.43 ha - Menzione Geografica of Barolo
In 1968, our family purchased this beautiful vineyard of just half a hectare, located in the high elevations of the area of Brunate. The view of the Barolo hills from its vantage point calms the spirit. Its excellent microclimate is the best in the Brunate area. It is a true paradise for growing vines, especially from the point of view of vine health.
A constant, light breeze in the morning naturally keeps fungal infections at bay, thus reducing insect pests, as well. The vineyard is already spontaneously organic. The soil comes from the Tortonian Miocene epoch. It is a blue-grey marl rich in calcium carbonates and manganese, with a mixture of fine sand and clay as well as limestone called Sant’Agata marl.
Sourced from their .43 hectare parcel of Brunate in La Morra.
Southeast at 300m in elevation.
Blue-gray marl rich in manganese. These clays are mixed with very fine sand and limestone also known as Marne di Sant'Agata.
