From a hip, more modern producer in the Veneto – the brothers Pasqua were inspired by Romeo & Juliet’s Wall, a unique corner of the city of Verona, where they are headquartered. Famiglia Pasqua created these wines in the famed style of the region, Appassimento. The grapes are left to dry in the Fruttaio, a large, airy room for this purpose, thus obtaining a greater concentration of flavors and sugar in the now-raisinated grapes. The vinification process takes place in separate steel tanks at controlled temperatures of 25- 28C for 30 days. Maturation in oak tonneaux (at second use) for 3 months. Afterwards the Merlot and Corvina grapes are blended and malolactic fermentation follows to harmonize and soften the wine.
The nose has intense aromas of red berries with hints of spices, and the palate is balanced with velvety tannins and it has a soft and round finish.
