"The 2006 Barolo Villero is less expressive and more closed in on itself than the Rocche, but that is to be expected. Sensual dark spices, menthol, minerals, black cherries and plums come together beautifully in this firm, old-style Barolo. The finish boasts considerable power and richness. Patience is the key, but the future certainly seems bright for the Villero." -Robert Parker
"Round and velvety at first, displaying firm tannins underneath, with cherry and menthol flavors. A muscular, traditional style that needs time to absorb its tannins."
"Putting your nose into a glass of Oddero Barolo Villero is like sniffing a handful of Langhe soil. This wine speaks highly of its territory with aromas of smoke, earth, forest berry, white truffle, hazelnut, cola, root beer, humus and dried apple skins. In the mouth, the tannins are impressively polished and fine."
