Famiglia Pasqua Passion e Sentimento Veneto Rosso 2017

Veneto, ItalyPassion e Sentimento is dedicated to Verona, the City of Love. The label tells the famous love story of Romeo and Juliet, which lives on today through the messages left daily at Juliet's house on Verona’s Cappello Street. This rosso is a 40/30/30 blend of merlot, corvina, and croatina, hand-harvested and dried for one month into wooden trays. The subsequent loss of 30 percent water content concentrates the grape sugars. Each variety is fermented solo in stainless steel, and the wine is aged in large, second-fill cherry barrels for three months. The final blend follows, and as you might expect, the merlot and the drying give the wine immediate appeal and drinkability. The style is fresh red cherry-berry with pleasantly spicy, soft tannins. A perfect red for spaghetti and meatballs — super value.Tasted: 23 July 2020Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices: BC 15.99 BCLS AB 16.95 select private retailers NB 15.04 NBLiquor Producer: Pasqua Vigneti e Cantine SPADistributors: Charton-Hobbs
