Other Reviews....
The Oddero 2013 Barolo Riserva Vignarionda is a gracefully aged expression with some dusty characteristics behind dried cherry fruit, spice and crushed mineral. The wine is pinned tightly together by a long succession of elegant and linear tones. The tannins are tucked in at the back and seamlessly absorbed into the mid-weight texture of fruit from Serralunga d'Alba. This is a very precise and linear expression. The idea behind this Riserva was to present a late release 10 years after the harvest. But Mariacristina Oddero and her family decided that it made more sense to time each release according to the qualities of the vintage. This 2013 shows beautiful results now, but it still holds back today in order to give you more tomorrow. Drink 2022 - 2045.

The 2013 Barolo Riserva Vigna Rionda is elegant, refined and translucent right out of the gate. A Barolo of drive and precision, the 2013 Rionda captures all of the energy of this great vintage. Red-toned fruit, blood orange, cinnamon, mint and rose petal play off virile tannins in a Barolo of contrasts that is both finessed and potent. Drink 2023 - 2043.

Love the sweetness of fruit to this with plums, meat, flowers and mushrooms on the nose. The palate shows round, chewy tannins with a clear line of fruit in the center palate. It’s transparent and bright. Just starting to open now. Drink after 2023.
