Reviews of purchase "La Poja" IGT, 2012
Wine rich garnet color with ruby reflections.
Powerful, rich, perfectly balanced taste wine from the first sip captivates its minerality, well-defined acidity, soft and at the same time, juicy tannins and a long finish.
Multi-faceted, wonderfully complex flavor of the wine shows intense notes of red and dark berries (blackberry and cherry) on the background light spicy nuances.
The wine will be the perfect pair of grilled meat, meat, grilled, game, aged cheeses, poultry and dishes with truffles.
