Notes

About Produttori del Barbaresco:
Dating back to 1894, but officially founded in 1958, Produttori del Barbaresco, along with Gaja and Giacosa, has defined this famous Piedmontese village and its wines. 51 members farm more than 100 hectares of prime Nebbiolo in Barbaresco. Each family is in full control of their land and farm with centuries-old skill and dedication. It is often regarded as the greatest co-operative in the world.

‘These fine, traditionally built Barbarescos deserve serious attention,’ writes Antonio Galloni, as they compete with many wines of the region at double or even triple the price. The latest 2013 vintage has been declared an ‘epic vintage of classic proportions and superb pedigree’ by Galloni. He suggests there is more consistency and purity than the stellar 2010 vintage.

Tasting notes:
'A rich, cherry- and floral-scented red, effusive in aroma, with the core of cherry prevailing on the palate. Though fleshy, this gives way to firm tannins that line the lingering aftertaste. Inviting and full of energy, so decant now or wait'. – Wine Spectator, 95/100

'The 2013 Barbaresco Riserva Pora is soft, pliant and enveloping. In many vintages, the Pora can be a bit light. Not in 2013. The wine is rich and deeply textured, with layers of fruit that continue to build with time in the glass. The tannins are present, but they are nearly buried by the sheer intensity of the fruit. This is an especially powerful, brooding edition of the Pora. Although impressive today, the 2013 will drink well for decades to come'. – Vinous, 94/100

'Scents of menthol, new leather, dark culinary spice, cured meat and forest floor lead the nose. The smooth, full-bodied palate shows juicy Morello cherry, pomegranate, licorice and clove balanced by vibrant acidity and tense, refined tannins. An almost salty note closes the finish. This a classic Barbaresco with years ahead of it. Drink 2021–2038'. – Wine Enthusiast, 94/100
