"Without question the finest wines I have ever tasted... "
2016 Produttori del Barbaresco Barbaresco Riserva Pora

Posted by Ian McFadden

As Antonio Galloni's quote makes clear, the 2016 Produttori's are special.

The 2016 represents a high-water mark for Produttori, which has served as a benchmark since its founding in 1958.

As we've said before, the 2016 Piedmont wines are a dream brew of depth, verve, and clarity. It’s one of the rare times where the wines possess the concentration of a ripe vintage along with the elegance and precision associated with cooler years.

Produttori del Barbaresco's 2016 presents the vintage's best attributes in a breathtaking collection of Crus. 

Today, we focus on their Pora Cru. Produttori's Pora typically offers a bright cherry fruit and floral profile with a seductive, silky, and relatively open-knit profile. 

The 2016 flaunts a multi-dimensional complexity and densely sculpted structure. There's serious muscle to the Pora and it shows truly beautiful detail and clarity. 

Simply put, this is a vintage of Pora to be excited about and go long on. The profundity and nuance of the site have never shined more brightly.

Antonio Galloni, Vinous Media: "The 2016 Barbaresco Riserva Pora is a brooding wine, its mid-weight structure notwithstanding. Iron, smoke, tobacco, cedar and dried flowers add a feral, earthy quality that is so appealing. Pora is often one of the more approachable Riservas in this range, but the 2016 is an exception. Readers should be prepared to cellar it for at least a few years."
