Wine "Poyega" created by a special technique "Ripasso" developed winemaker Masi in 1960 and registered under the trademark "Ripasso", but recently it began to be used by other manufacturers in the region. The idea behind this technique is quite time-consuming that the Valpolicella Classico Superiore blend re-fermented with the skins before fermentation slightly dried grapes used to make Amarone. The result is a wine with a unique complex flavor, more dense, viscous and rich than the Valpolicella Classico, with a powerful aroma of candied cherries. Wine fermentation takes place in stainless steel tanks, and exposure - 50-gektolitrovyh French oak barrels for 12 months. "Pojega" is made only in the best years, produced in a limited and numbered edition.
