40% Merlot, 30% Corvina & 30% Croatina
This Italian red hails from Verona in the North of Italy. Themed around Romeo & Juliet’s wall located in Verona, where 3000 messages of love are left every day. The grapes are dried on racks before fermentation to increase concentration. The result is a velvety smooth, rich red.

91/100 James Suckling 2018 (2016 Vintage)
"Alluring aromas of dark berries, flowers and stones follow through to a medium body, firm and silky tannins and a fresh finish. Just a hint of toffee and chocolate. Drink now."
Matthew Jukes, Daily Mail
"With an amazing twang of acidity underpinning a stunning red cherry core, this Valpolicella-style wine made by the famous Pasqua family could easily cost an awful lot more. Rich, lusty and complex, it’s a superstar red with a regal air."
Jane MacQuitty, The Times
"This dreamy red, made from partially dried grapes, has both concentration and complexity. Its bold, brooding, beefy, richly spiced fruit is just what’s wanted with beef carpaccio."
