Famiglia Pasqua Romeo & Juliet Passione e Sentimento Rosso 2021

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% water content concentrates the grape sugars, enriching the structure of the wine. Each variety is fermented solo in stainless steel, and the wine is aged in large, 2nd fill cherry barrels for 3 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 cherry, berry with pleasantly spicy, soft tannins. A perfect red for spaghetti and meatballs, and super value. No big changes here, although the price continues to climb to a new high at $19.Tasted: 29 March 2024Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices:
