Poderi Oddero Barolo Bussia Vigna Mondoca Riserva 2010 750ml
Barolo, Pietmont, Italy
James Suckling 97
The purity of fruit here is stunning. A cascade of all kinds of fruit tea precedes a fanfare of blueberry peel, bright lemons, heather, freshly pressed lavender, orange rind and grapefruit skin. Full body, bright acidity and layered fruit that’s taken on a long, seemingly endless ride on the finish. So refined and delicate yet powerful and forthcoming. Delicious now, but better in 2022 and a long time after that.

The 2012 Barolo Riserva Bussia Vigna Mondoca shows delicate intensity and long staying power. This is a classic Barolo that opens to delicate and pristine fruit aromas. This graceful wine should age well, preserving its ethereal and fragile elegance. Only 3,500 bottles were made.
