- 2005 Produttori del Barbaresco Barbaresco Riserva Pora - Italy, Piedmont, Langhe, Barbaresco (11/13/2012)
Pretty but with one off-putting feature.
Dark ruby opaque in the center but mostly translucent. Nose was tobacco, licorice, red berry, and an unpleasant barnyard scent. (This barnyard scent is what was off-putting, but it's odd as I usually like barnyard scents. This however was unpleasant.) The barnyard scent went away after about 90 minutes. On the palate, less of the red berry, but still tobacco and licorice, and an appealing gravelly minerality. Tannins are a little bit rough still. Medium-length finish.
