The estate’s 2004 Barolo Rocche di Castiglione is a dark wine loaded with black cherries, menthol and sweet spices in the focused, sinewy style that is the hallmark of this bottling. Today the wine comes across as quite primary, but the tannins are refined, and my impression is that the only thing this needs is bottle age. The wine’s richness and depth are commendable. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2022.
These 2004 Barolos are the finest wines I have tasted from Oddero in many years. The wines possess a surprising level of concentration relative to past recent vintages, with little of the shrillness that characterized those wines. It’s great to see Oddero making solid wines once again.
