Founding wine and starting point of the Romeo&Juliet project; 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. PassioneSentimento is aged in oak tonneau barrels for 3 months.

Style
A dense and deeply coloured wine, full of concentrated black and red cherry flavour, and hints of leather and spice. The palate has a layered texture, with muscular tannins providing a long finish.


Food Pairings

Great with red meat and game or with aged cheese.

Founded in 1925 in Verona, home of Romeo and Juliet, Pasqua Vigneti e Cantine was born of the family's love for the Valpolicella region and its wines. Three generations of people with a Veronese heart and an international soul share the same great passion: viticulture and the making of unique wines, first in Veneto, and then in the most famous Italian wine regions.
