October 19, 2015 - A nice ruby colored wine with a spicy, dark fruit and earthy nose, the wine sits wonderfully on the palate with nicely balanced tannins and finished with a flavorful fruit finish with fine acidity. It is not the most complex of wines, but is enjoyable and flavorful. The balance is so fine that this would be a great addition to any cellar as the tannins and acidity have at least another 5-7 years to fully mellow.

August 21, 2015 - Abbastanza evoluto, (inizialmente un po' sporco di note animali, che si stemperano completamente), sensazioni di carne al sangue, cuoio, catrame, terra, china, genziana, fiori appassiti, funghi, poi eleganti spezie dolci, liquirizia, mentolo. Bocca intensa, possente; acidità ancora vivace; tannini eccellenti e levigati, satinati dal tempo. Finale lungo e molto persistente, con richiami al fernet.
Questo Pora 2005 è un ottimo Barbaresco ad un punto dell'evoluzione di grande fascino.1 person found this helpful Comment

March 28, 2015 - Two 2005 Produttoris: Double decant, minimum of five hours air, over two nights. Colour deep garnet. A bouquet of old plums and red cherries, creosote, red liquorice, with aromas of tobacco and dried leaves. Attractive, mellow and savoury. Further along its drinking curve than the Paje. Red cherry is the dominant flavour, with spicy plums, dry underbrush and leather. Good dry extract and density and good freshness and acidity. Slightly rustic, grippy tannins across the mid palate and more straightforward and less detailed than I'd like. Finishes reasonably long but a little firmly. A good wine but slightly disappointing. Ideally, give it another 3+ years.

January 10, 2015 - I was a little disappointed in this wine. Tasted with the regular Produttori cuvee from 2006, this was a marginally better in terms of complexity and aging potential (could go a few years more), but the regular bottling, admittedly from a better year, beat it on the nose. This was restrained, with leather, dried fruit and hard tannins. Still, a pleasant drink, of course.

December 7, 2014 - Asphalt, rasberry, pine, leather and smoke on the palate. Drinking nicely now. Be even better in a few years, but i could not wait.
