Critical Acclaim
Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate:
“Again, this wine is typically released ten years after the harvest, and so in the case of the 2009 Barolo Riserva Vignarionda, we are right on time. Balsamic notes and lovely shades of spearmint lift from a bouquet that offers so much green and herbal intensity. This is a delicate and ethereal expression and a very special wine that has little primary fruit or secondary aromas left. The bouquet has moved fully into the tertiary realm with those fleeting and ephemeral perfumes that rise so gently. This vintage does not have the same density and darkness that you get in the similarly warm 2011 edition, and that won’t be missed. I prefer this wine to the 2011 vintage, but I would also suggest a shorter drinking window here. Note that Vignarionda will not be a Riserva in the 2014 edition.”

Tasting Notes:
Intense garnet-ruby red color, deep, limpid. Complex bouquet of dark fruit, blackberries, citrus and
rose, balsamic notes of tobacco, liquorice and quina, with nuances of forest underbrush and wet
limestone. In the mouth, the wine displays firm tannins, freshness, persistence and longevity

About the Winery:
This winery was founded in 1878, in the area of Santa Maria, a hamlet of La Morra. It is one of the oldest producers of Barolo, a family that has kept the distinctive traditional style of winemaking for over a century. Over the generations, the Oddero family has gradually expanded its vineyards to today’s impressive 60 hectares, many of which lie in the illustrious Barolo vineyards of Brunate, Rocche di Castiglione, Villero and Mondoca di Bussia. Since 2001, with the help of young and talented winemaker Luca Valigo, Oddero winery has become one of the leading producers in Barolo.
