Oddero is a name that is synonymous with quality in Piedmont. The family has been active in the Barolo wine trade since the 1800s and were among the first to commercialize the wine from the zone. Over the decades they acquired over 70 hectares, a majority of which is in Barolo, and studiously worked the land at a time when Nebbiolo and Dolcetto were priced the same, and the rewards for working the challenging slopes of Barolo were sparse. As you well know, everything has changed in the last few decades and Barolo commands higher prices than ever. Having endured the long road, Luigi Oddero was rewarded for his decades of labor building up the family vineyards once Barolo finally became the benchmark wine that it is and the "King of Piedmont." The Oddero family's vast vineyard holdings were divided up between Luigi and his brother Giacomo in 2006 when insurmountable tension drove them apart. While Luigi passed away in 2010, his wife and children still run the winery, with winemaker Dante Scaglioni - who worked for Bruno Giacosa as winemaker for 25 years - now at the helm. Through his expertise, the estate’s wines have reached new levels of expressiveness and complexity, and are only getting better. These wine represent incredible value for Barolo and Barbera in the region and have somehow managed to stay more unde-the-radar at reasonable prices despite the winemaking pedigree. Grab these wine you can because they are sure to climb in price once the secret is out.  - Meg Van Til
