Luigi Oddero Vigna Rionda DOCG 2007

Wine Enthusiast - 90 points - Aromas recall fennel, grilled herb, leather, mocha and a whiff of balsam. Reflecting the heat of the vintage, the palate is already evolved but still shows dried black cherry and black pepper.

IMPORTER NOTES:

Intense, ethereal, very persistent aromas with notes of spices, underwood, licorice and wilted flowers. Dry, full and well-structured on the palate. This wine has a very long life if bottled and properly stored. Bottle ageing improves the wine’s extraordinary organoleptic qualities. It is excellent with roast meats, game meat and fine aged cheese.
