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.

Winery notes (2021 Vintage)
"A dense and deeply coloured wine, full of concentrated black and red cherry flavour, and hints of leather and spice. The palate has a layered texture, with muscular tannins providing a long finish.

founding wine and starting point of the Romeo&Juliet project; a red wine like love and passion. A blend of Corvina and Croatina with a percentage of Merlot, which the drying period renders velvetier still. The grapes are picked by hand and left to dry in wooden crates in the drying loft. There, by means of humidity control and air circulation, the grapes lose around 30% of water content and achieve high sugar concentration. Given that the grapes have differing ageing times, vinification takes place separately in steel tanks; thus the blend is created at the end of this process. PassioneSentimento is aged in oak tonneau barrels for 6 months."

91/100 James Suckling (2019 Vintage)
"Lots of brambleberry character to this. Medium-bodied with very fine tannins that add a creamy effect to the intense fruit, which never wavers. Uncomplicated and deliciously fruity."

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 MacQuittyThe 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."
