PRODUCER: Pasqua Vigneti e Cantine is an historic winery that produces high quality Veneto and Italian wines and one of the main players in the Italian and international wine market. A family passion. A century long history. PassioneSentimento is dedicated to the city of love par excellence, Verona. The label tells the most famous love story in the world, Romeo and Juliet, that lives today through the messages left everyday by the visitors of Juliet’s house in Cappello Street in Verona.
WINEMAKING: The Merlot and Corvina grapes, selected and hand harvested with great care, are then left to dry for 1 month into wooden trays. The grapes loses around 30% of their water content and gain high sugars concentration. The vinification process takes place in separate steel tanks at controlled temperature of 25-28°C for 20 days. Maturation in large cherry barrels (at second use) for 3 months. Afterwards the grapes are blended and malolactic fermentation follows to harmonize and soften the wine.
TASTING NOTES: Deep ruby red in colour. The nose has intense aromas of red berries with hints of spices. The palate is balanced with velvety tannins, and it has a soft and round finish.
Also available in Magnum format.
