To produce the Langhe Nebbiolo Oddero, a careful selection of the grapes is carried out in the vineyard during the harvest. Maceration for around 15 days, followed by malolactic fermentation. Aging occurs in different size oak barrels for 14 months and then concrete for 3 months.
Poderi e Cantine Oddero was established in the late 18th century by the Oddero family, who have lived in La Morra since the first half of that century. Located in Santa Maria, La Morra, the raised vineyards are naturally terraced and overlook the Langhe hills. With a total of 35 hectares, they cultivate some of Piemonte’s most renowned wines through the use of traditional knowledge paired with modern production techniques. 16.5 hectares are cultivated to produce Nebbiolo for Barolo and Barbaresco. Several of those vineyards are codified “Menzioni Geografiche Aggiuntive”, meaning they are prized for Nebbiolo cultivation, under the new Production Regulations (Disciplinari di Produzione) for Barolo and Barbaresco. They also cultivate 6 hectares of hazelnut trees for the prized Nocciola Piemonte IGP.
