2008 Produttori del Barbaresco "Pora" Barbaresco Riserva

SKU #1138029 95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Playing true to type, the 2008 Barbaresco Riserva Pora is another of the more open wines in this vintage. But that is only in relative terms. Layers of expressive red fruit, crushed flowers and spices flesh out in this radiant Barbaresco. In most vintages the Pora is one of the more accessible of the Riservas when young. The close proximity of the vineyard to the Tanaro River results in a warm microclimate that ripens the fruit earlier than elsewhere. In 2008, though, the Pora packs a serious punch. The coolness of the late harvest comes through in a finish laced with considerable tension and minerality. This is easily one of the very best Poras I have ever tasted from the Produttori. (AG) Inner quote mark (10/2012)

Outer quote mark The integrated tannins here are beautiful and solid. Full body with a licorice, berry and plum character. Chewy but polished. Inner quote mark (7/2014)

K&L Notes

Produttori del Barbaresco is a type of cooperative arrangement between 56 growers in Barbaresco. Its roots go back to 1958 when small growers of the region working in cooperation with the priest of Barbaresco village came together to ensure the quality and uniqueness of their production. Each family still maintains their small vineyard holdings, and most years these are blended into either bottlings of Barbaresco or Nebbiolo, and in great years there can be one or more of 9 single vineyard bottlings produced. These wines will always have their vineyards and growers noted and are quite special.
