Other Reviews....
The Oddero 2017 Barolo draws its fruit from three sites: Bricco Chiesa and Capalot, both in La Morra and Fiasco in Castiglione Falletto. I always admire the purity and elegance inherent to these wines from Oddero and am happy to report that the 2017 vintage delivers on those same promises. The wine pours from the bottle with a brilliant ruby hue, and it offers aromas of wild cherry, blue flower and tarry smoke. There are virtually no signs of the vintage heat, save for a little more tannic power and concentration that you perceive in the mouth. I'd suggest a longish drinking window as a result. Drink 2024 - 2040.

The 2017 Barolo is a very pretty, elegant wine and one of the few straight Barolos in this vintage that is truly finessed. Translucent and so expressive, the Oddero Barolo is wonderfully expressive right out of the gate. Crushed flowers, sweet red berry, mint and cinnamon all grace this super-expressive Barolo. Drink 2022 - 2032.

Antonio Galloni - Vinous

A firm, layered Barolo with plum, tar and licorice character. Medium body and an attractive center palate with tannins that are nicely resolved. Fine and flavorful at the end. Drinkable now, but better after 2023.
