We are delighted to announce that our single vineyard Valpolicella Ripasso, POJEGA has been awarded GOLD by the 2020 Vinordic Wine Challenge.
The competition is a pretty big deal in Sweden, as not many medals are awarded and only wines available to the public in the Systembolaget stores are eligible for entry. In addition to this, wines in each price tier are judged against their peers and those that come out best are awarded the medals. So this is seen as a really strong consumer’s guide to what to purchase in the stores.
POJEGA Valpolicella Ripasso DOP Classico Superiore 2017 has picked up quite a few accolades over the years including Tre Bicchieri awards from Gambero Rosso and in many of these cases it has been singled out for its individual style. It has been noted as a Ripasso which has depth and concentration but is neither sweet nor jammy, a wine which is elegant, balanced and ultimately, very drinkable.
In this year’s Vinordic Wine Challenge it was one of only two wines to win Gold in its price category.
