"Poderi e Cantine Oddero is a historical name among Barolo producers. Its foundations were laid at the end of the 18th century when our ancestors were already cultivating vineyards in La Morra. In 1878, our ancestor Giacomo Oddero (1851-1915) decided, in a move that proved to be ahead of his time, to bottle his wines under his family name. Thus began the adventure that has continued, uninterrupted, for seven generations." - Oddero Family. If you are not familiar with this wine, it can be a real surprise. The name is deceptive: As dolce means sweet in Italian, many might think that Dolcetto is a dessert wine. In reality the name comes from the Langhe, deriving more about the grape than the wine. It’s always been the table grape of our hills, eaten in the autumn together with seasonal pears and boiled chestnuts from the nearby Alpine valleys. Dolcetto is crisp, light and refreshing, with flavours of Damson fruit and blueberry and a mineral, smoky finish.
