    Barbera d'Asti DOCG Superiore Nizza 2021
  • Today we are in the heart of Monferrato, amidst sinuous hills and sun-kissed vineyards. This is the birthplace of this Nizza DOCG by Oddero, a red wine that represents the most authentic soul of Piedmont. 100% Barbera, the grapes come from the vineyards of Scrimaglio, at 250 metres above sea level, this wine benefits from a unique terroir, characterised by calcareous-clayey soils with sandy components that give the grapes a decisive and mineral character. The vineyards here enjoy a privileged southern exposure, which maximises sunshine and favours perfect ripening of the grapes. The altitude, combined with the composition of the soil, gives the Barbera a marked acidity that wisely balances the richness of the fruit and gives the wine a crisp freshness. In addition, the old vines, aged between 30 and 60 years, provide grapes that are concentrated and rich in extracts, resulting in a deep and long-lived wine. Harvested by hand, with careful selection of the ripest and healthiest bunches, fermentation and maceration take place in stainless steel for about 15 days, preserving the freshness and liveliness of the aromas. Malolactic fermentation follows, which softens the tannins and gives the wine a more harmonious profile. Finally, ageing in 40 and 65 hectolitre oak casks for 16 months gives Oddero's Nizza DOCG complexity, elegance and a long capacity for evolution. An intense ruby red colour, the nose seduces with an enveloping bouquet of ripe red fruit, such as cherries and plums, enriched by notes of bitter cocoa, coffee and sweet spices. With age, tertiary hints of leather, liquorice and undergrowth emerge, enhancing the aromatic complexity of the wine. In the mouth, however, it surprises with its firm structure and rich body. The vibrant acidity expertly balances the fruit and with the soft, velvety tannins creates a harmonious and persistent sip. Ideal with braised or baked red meats, game and mature cheeses. Excellent with bagna cauda, a typical Piedmontese winter dish of anchovies, garlic and oil.

    The Oddero wine estate is an authentic natural terrace embracing the heart of Piedmontese oenology. Here, the vineyard is more than just a crop. It is rather a tradition, handed down from generation to generation. A family heritage that must be preserved and enhanced. The Oddero family vineyards are scattered on the slopes of the most prestigious hills. Here, among the best positions, or 'sorì' as they are known locally, the symbolic vines of the region ripen: the noble Nebbiolo, the beating heart of Barolo and Barbaresco, Moscato, and Barbera. "Poderi e Cantine Oddero" are a historic brand in the wine world. Today, the reins of the company are in the hands of Mariacristina and Mariavittoria, daughters of Giacomo Oddero, a legendary figure in the Piedmontese wine scene. The Oddero's oenological philosophy is a perfect fusion of tradition and innovation.
