Pasqua 'Romeo & Juliet' Passione e Sentimento 2014

Veneto, ItalyThis is an apassimento of Merlot and Corvina grapes, left to dry for 1 month into wooden trays before wine from the just-fermented grapes is added, kicking off a secondary ferment that lasts one month in stainless steel. The wine is then matured in oak tonneaux (second use) for three months before the wines are blended and MLF occurs. Soft, pretty raspberry and cherry, blackberry gummies, pink peppercorn spice on a velvet palate. Low tannins, moderate acidity, gentle spicing, like a hug. Fitting for a wine called Romeo and Juliet, and reflected in the label: a photo taken by GiĆ² Martorana, Unesco Prize for Photography, which portrays the daily messages left by lovers on the walls of the famous courtyard of Romeo and Juliet in Verona.Tasted: 13 March 2017Tasted by: Treve RingPrices: BC 14.00 private wine shops Producer: Pasqua Vigneti e Cantine SPADistributors: Charton-Hobbs
