Reviews and Ratings

Jane Staples - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

From Verona, Italy, the City of Love, the esteemed Pasqua winery produces this elegant Rosso Veneto, a blend of Merlot 40%, Corvina 30% and Croatina 30%. Fragrant ripe cherries, cola, vanilla, cloves and a hint of tobacco on the nose and lush, velvety palate, then a lingering, sensuous finish. Some of the grapes used to make this wine were slightly dried before fermentation, resulting in deeper, richer flavours. A great date wine!
Tasted May 2016
Matt Steeves - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Pasqua's 'PASSIMENTO' or 'Passione Sentimento' (Passion and Feeling), pays tribute to the delicious appassimento wines (and Romeo & Juliet) from the city of love, Verona, where this unique blend of 40% Merlot, 30% Corvina, and 30% Croatina is produced. After the grapes were picked they were carefully placed in wooden trays and left to dry for one month, similar to how the famous Amarone wines are made, which results in rich, flavourful, and concentrated wines, ideally suited for BBQ and hearty cool-weather meals. This super value priced wine is jam packed with juicy dark cherry, roasted beets, dried herbs, and sweet spice. A wine that's destined to be enjoyed and loved by many, and unlike Romeo and Juliet, there's no tragic love story anywhere in this wine's future! Tasted September 2016. 90 points.

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a feisty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
