    Item no. 123883

    Winemaker's Notes:

    Ruby red color with a ripe, broad red fruit bouquet with an earthy character. The 2008 is a full bodied vintage with intense and rich fruit, ripe, powerful tannins and a very long finish.

    Critical Acclaim:

    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. Anticipated maturity: 2018-2048.
