2016 Luigi Oddero e Figli, Barolo Convento, Piedmont, Italy

$39.99

In the deservedly hyped '16 vintage, under the guidance of their new cellarmaster Francesco Verzio (ex- of Bruno Giacosa) Oddero decided to instead bottle a second wine"--mostly from east- and southeast-facing parcels in La Morra and augmented by some east-facing vines across the border in Barolo, to the south of the Annunziata cru toward Cannubi. They named it "Convento"--a nod to the fact that the Tenuta Para estate (the foundation of Luigi Oddero's winery) was the site of a convent in the early 17th century.
