2009 produttori del barbaresco, barbaresco, pora riserva
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
To my palate, the 2009 Barbaresco Riserva Pora is the most reflective of the warm vintage. It delivers an open, immediate style with dark fruit and spice aromas that are both ample and broad. The Riserva Pora shows hearty fruit fullness with round structure and fleshy intensity. The wine is layered and deep. These results suggest that this wine is appropriate for near term consumption, but also long term cellar aging. It is in a special position to offer either alternative although I am curious to know where its evolution will take it ten years from now.
