Famiglia Pasqua Passimento Romeo and Juliet's Wall 2015
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. After crushing, the wine macerates on the skins for 12 hours to increase the complexity and structure. Finally, following fermentation, a part of the wine is aged in French Oak barrels. The result is a white wine that reveals on the nose intense aromas of citrus and hints of apricot and peach. The palate is round and pleasant, well-balanced with a lingering finish.
