Intense ruby in colour, with perfumes of spice and blackberries with a mineral note, La Poja is rich and full-bodied on the palate, with great structure and balance, rounded, spicy cherry-blackberry fruit and a long, spicy finish.
Produced from the three Valpolicella grape varieties of Corvina Veronese, Rondinella and Molinara, cultivated high on the hillside terraces. After harvest the grapes are placed directly onto small open racks and brought to the open sided building where they are dried by the cool breezes of autumn and winter until the following February.
This extraordinary wine is produced from grapes grown on the Tommasi ‘Fiorato’ plot. Very low yielding vines produce tiny volumes of grapes and following a rigorous drying process and ageing in barrels for 12 months it is released in half bottles. Retaining a high residual sugar and pleasant fruitiness it is a superb dessert wine.
A subtle and wonderfully charismatic cherry scented red wine, given an extraordinary depth of flavour by refermenting the blend of Valpolicella grape varieties on the skins left from the Amarone wine and matured for 18 months in large oak barrels. The wine shows a spicy pepper nose, with a hint of raisins.
