"The vintage was characterized by fairly high temperatures and healthy grapes that were perfectly intact at harvest time. The ripening phase required two emergency irrigations in the upper hillside vineyards and also benefitted from the timely rainfall of 20th August, which helped maintain the physiological balance of the vines, resulting in the complete aromatic and phenolic ripening of the grapes. The absence of rain, except on two days, during the harvest period meant that the work was carried out easily and almost without interruption. The forecast is that vintage 2015 wines will be complex and long-lived, characterized by slightly above average alcohol content and a good balance between acidity and extract.
 La Poja is a deep, intense and extraordinarily fruity wine. It embodies the maximum finesse that the noble Veronese grape can express in a treasure trove of opulence, tautness and vigour. Its aromas range from ripe cherry to white pepper, embellished with balsamic nuances and hints of iris.
 La Poja makes an ideal accompaniment to roasted red meats and game. It is excellent with aged cheeses, and a perfect match with white or black truffles. Serve at 18°C (64°F) and open the bottle one hour before consumption. Has the potential to age for 18 years."
