Pasqua, Hey French – You Could Have Made This But You Didn’t Bianco Edizione II, Veneto IGT, Italy
Tasting Note: A substantial, elegant white blend with a creamy mouthfeel.
Medium-intensity gold in color, this wine has an aromatic, medium-plus-intensity nose of golden apple, pear and honey with hints of white peach and vanilla baking spice.
On the palate the dry, medium-plus-bodied white blend has medium-plus-intensity flavors suggested on the nose supported by medium acidity and completing with a golden-fruit, medium-plus-finish with tart, green-apple notes.
The wine is creamy in texture with some pleasing oxidative notes that add depth and character.
Bottle Note: Hey French is a powerful expression of the vineyards located on the Veronese side of Mount Calvarina, as well as a skillful blend of the best 4 vintages of the last decade. CB Hoyo, who designed this label, is the self-taught French artist producing artwork full of color and humor, as it pokes fun at society and the world in which we live.
