2016 Famiglia Pasqua Passimento Rosso (Organic, Sustainable)

Pasqua Vigneti e Cantine is a historic company producing quality Veneto and Italian wines. Through almost 100 years of history, the company has established itself on the international scene with its products, particularly red wines, which are synonymous with great winemaking tradition. Tradition, innovation, quality, research and passion are values passed on generation to generation in the Pasqua family and today are represented by the native wines from the Veneto region and the great Italian classics with DOC, DOCG and IGT denominations distributed in every continent. 

A founding wine and starting point of the Romeo & Juliet project; the wine is red like love and passion. A blend of Corvina and Croatina grapes with a percentage of Merlot, which the drying period renders velvetier still. The grapes are picked by hand and left to dry in wooden crates in the drying loft. There, by means of humidity control and air circulation, the grapes lose around 30% of their water content and achieve a high sugar concentration. Given that the grapes have differing ageing times, vinification takes place separately in steel tanks; the blend being created only after this. Passione Sentimento is aged in oak tonneau barrels for 3 months.

Beautiful deep ruby red in color, an intense and lingering nose, with striking notes of red fruits and spicy overtones. Balanced, rounded, plush and caressing on the palate, with velvety tannins.

Alluring aromas of dark berries, flowers and stones follow through to a medium body, firm and silky tannins and a fresh finish. Just a hint of toffee and chocolate. Drink now.

Great with red meat and game or with aged cheese.
