Sanguine, rust, basil, rosemary. Tart red cherry, fresh rose petal, and mint. High acidity, gripping elevated tannins, elevated body. Medium finish. Rougher tannins than Ovello 2014 and Asili 2014.

Pora is one of 9 specific vineyards marketed as a Riserva after 4 years by the Produttori. We visited there several years ago and had a tasting of several of the distinct Cuvées. Rabaja and Asili would be 2 of the better known of these Cuvées. The Produttori is a great example of a cooperative working well for all the growers in the district. This 2005 Pora was medium Ruby in colour - transparent in spots. Aromas of earth dried rose petals and a touch of Tar and Tannin. Yes you can almost smell the Tannins! The light colour belies the power of this wine even at 14 years. On the palate sour cherries light tarry notes and masses of fine powdery Tannins - persistent and long. This wine demands food and it went well with Lamb Chops. If I had another of these I would leave it for at least another 5 years. Loved it.

Slightly stewed red and blue fruit, some freshness too if that makes sense. Tart but soft fruit. Pretty play doh like finish to the midpalate. Pretty.

On the very end of its life but throwing lots of apple and apricot. A treat for sure

Still improving. But tannins have mellowed and now drinkable. Lots of spice and brash, complex dark fruit, especially plum.
