TN: 2017 Luigi Oddero Barolo

Immediately expressive with aromas of rose petal, cherry, licorice and raspberry. It is full, rich and heady, with good depth and ripe tannins buried for now. It is certainly accessible now but there’s good material upon which to age further.

Thank you for this note, Jeremy. I have not had the 2017, but many bottles of the 2015 and 2016, for the simple reason that they are the whole Barolo kit for a remarkably fair price ($50ish here). It’s such a good “Classico” that one pauses before going up the estate’s hierarchy.

Thanks for the note Jermey, I loved the 2016 and just purchased some more. Glad to hear that 17’ is drinking well.

Wait! Didn’t you hear that 2017 wasn’t the “Vintage of the Century” for Barolo and that we shouldn’t be drinking them? hitsfan

Yes, he should be hung, drawn and quartered for such a brazen act!
