Passione Sentimento, Veneto IGT Rosso, Romeo & Juliet, 2016
Veneto IGT Rosso
PassioneSentimento, dedicated to Verona, tells the love story par excellence, the Romeo and Juliet one, that made Verona worldwide famous.
The marriage of tradition and modern winemaking is most evident in PassioneSentimento Rosso. Corvina, Croatina and Merlot are handpicked, and a portion of the Corvina and Merlot are then set in small crates in the “Fruttaio” till the grapes lose 30% of their water content. The resulting extract exhibits a higher concentration of sugars, richer fruit characteristics, stronger natural aromas, and elements of the terroir. This is then blended with the juice from the non-dried grapes and vinified in stainless steel tanks. Following the fermentation process, the wine is then transferred to age in oak tonneaux for around 3 months and then aged in the bottle. The finished wine is a vibrant ruby red, with hints of cherry, plum and spice characteristics, round and rich with velvety tannins and a powerful structure.
Deep ruby red in colour. The nose has intense aromas of red berries with hints of spices. The palate is balanced with velvety tannins, and it has a soft and round finish.
Great with red meat and game or with aged cheese.
