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. With a considerable potential to age, the Pora will also provide refreshing Barbaresco pleasure in either the short or very long term.

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 2014 Barbaresco Riserva Pora is a dark, sensual beauty. Deeply spiced and balsamic, with tremendous textural richness, the Pora is utterly beguiling. I can't remember a Pora with this much depth, textural resonance and brooding intensity. The 2014 needs at least a few years to be at its best, but it is superb even in the early going. I won't be surprised if the 2014 turns out to be better than this note suggests." Drink 2024 - 2044

93/100 Decanter, Stephen Brook

"Although Pora is a relatively low-elevation site and can produce broad wines, Produttori's growers own almost half the cru, so they can select the best grapes for this Riserva. It's beautifully perfumed, with pure raspberry fruit. The palate is streamlined and poised, with a sleek texture and a remarkable purity of flavour, yet it doesn't lack structure and its fine acidity gives it drive and persistence." Drink 2019 - 2032

93+/100 The Wine Front, Gary Walsh

"Menthol, cherry to dark cherry, dried flowers. Medium-bodied, expressive and fresh, ample fruit, some grip to the tannin, but little astringency per the vintage, strawberry and perfume to close. Slight tacky feel to the tannin tannin on exit. Lovely. A fine result. PdB would be among my favourite wine producers in the world. Burgundy could learn something about terroir from the people who produce nine distinct crus with essentially the same low input winemaking techniques." Drink 2020 - 2030
