Famiglia Pasqua, Passimento 2016, Veneto, Italy
Tasting Note: A red blend from Italy that employs one of the country’s oldest winemaking techniques that is enjoyed by lovers of Amarone.
Deep-intensity purple in color, this wine has a medium-plus-intensity, aromatic nose of red plum, red cherry, crushed-violet petal and black currant with hints of blackberry.
On the palate the slightly off-dry, red blend delivers medium-intensity, red-and-black fruit flavors suggested on the nose along with some notes of raisin.
The wine is medium in acidity with medium tannin.
The red blend is balanced with a straightforward profile and some mid-palate concentration courtesy of the dried grapes that were added during fermentation.
Bottle Note: 3,000 love messages a day from every corner of the world, any religion, any culture trapped forever on a single frame: Romeo and Juliet’s wall, a unique spot in our city. This elegant and velvety red wine is partially produced with grapes that have been slightly dried before fermentation.
