Produttori del Barbaresco 2015 Barbaresco Pora

Description

"A mix of black cherry, mint, eucalyptus and tar flavors highlight this firmly structured Barbaresco, which nonetheless remains fresh and focused, with a line of dense tannins lifting the long finish. Best from 2023 through 2043. " Wine Spectator 94 Points

"Following the suggestion of Produttori del Barbaresco General Manager Renato Vacca, I am starting off this series of nine Riservas with the 2015 Barbaresco Riserva Pora. This wine is usually the most delicate, slender and ephemeral of this set. However, I can immediately confirm that this is not necessarily the case with this exuberant 2015 vintage. The sunny heat of the growing season has successfully drawn out more fruit weight and intensity in this edition of Pora. The wine overdelivers in terms of aromas, but its streamlined and polished personality follows through to the palate. Those divergent intensity levels will smooth out with more bottle age. Some 16,666 bottles were released." Robert Parker 94 Points

"The 2015 Barbaresco Riserva Pora is round, plush and seductive. The warmth of the year comes through in the wine's soft curves and overall raciness. Sweet tobacco, cedar, mint, licorice and dried flowers add aromatic nuance to a racy Barbaresco that will drink well right out of the gate. This is such a pretty wine." Antonio Galloni 93 Points

"Underbrush, wild herb and dark-skinned-berry aromas form the nose along with a whiff of camphor. On the firm, structured palate, tightly knit but noble tannins offset dried Marasca cherry, cranberry, orange zest and star anise. Tense and youthfully austere, it needs a few years to unwind. Drink 2022–2027. " Wine Enthusiast 95 Points
