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 3 months.
A dense and deep colored 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.
