A precise and focused Cru Barbaresco from Produttori's legendary range. As a relatively fertile and early ripening site, Pora offers a feminine and tightly woven style with red fruits bound in fine tannins and precise minerality. (To view notes on this range from our recent tasting please click here.) With a considerable potential to age, the Pora will also provide refreshing Barbaresco pleasure in the relatively short term. A legendary year -- stocks are almost gone!

Its Origins

It took a sympathetic local priest to realise the only way for the community of Barbaresco to survive, in the poverty of the late 1950's, was for the winemakers to form a co-operative. The first 19 members made their wine in the church basement, but it didn't take long for this idea to provide them with solvency as well as solidarity. Quality too, as a more secure income allowed the individual growers to maintain the high standards they aspired to. Over decades the co-operative grew to it's current membership of 52, during which time it also developed an extensive and almost bewildering array of single vineyard offerings. Until recently the traditional labelling and less-than-dynamic global marketting strategy meant Produttori was strictly the preserve of experts. Nowadays however, as the world trawls Piedmont for both it's obvious and it's hidden gems, Produttori's delightfully backward labelling and proud obsession with qualtity are revealing it as one of the world's most profoundly undervalued wine treasures.

What The Critics Say

94/100 Vinous, Antonio Galloni

"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." Drink 2023 - 2043

94/100 Wine Enthusiast

"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." Drink 2021 - 2038

17++/20 JancisRobinson.com, Walter Speller

"Vigorous and expressive strawberry and cherry nose. Firm cherry fruit with grainy, long tannins and wonderful fresh acidity. Tightly woven tannic structure wrapping-up succulent fruit. Lots to chew on. Barbaresco. 16,666 bottles produced. (WS)" Drink 2020 - 2030
