Oddero - Barbaresco Gallina 2012 Ml. 750
At least 24 months
Oddero winery is similar to a natural terrace overlooking the hills of Langhe and, just as in the past, still produces wines exclusively from grapes grown in family-owned vineyards.
Traditional knowledge and modern production techniques, as well as patience and perseverance are at the core of Oddero's philosophy.
Oddero owns approximately 35.00 hecatres of vineyards, of which 16.50 are Nebbiolo for Barolo vineyards. As part of an old family tradition, Oddero also still owns 5 hectares of land devoted to growing hazelnuts, the delicious prized IGP (Protected Geographical Indication) tonda e gentile (round and gentle hazelnuts) of the Langhe.
