Estate: Pasqua Vigneti e Cantine was founded in 1925 in Verona, northern Italy by the Pasqua brothers. The 3rd generation works along side the 2nd generation of Pasqua brothers, Carlo, Giorgio and Umberto. Over the years the brothers have expanded the vineyards into other regions of Italy and founded a viticulture research center.
Philosophy: The estate is passionate about “tradition, innovation, quality, research” values that they pass down to each generation, “and are narrated today through native wines from the Veneto region as well as other great Italian wines with DOC, DOCG and IGT quality designation”.
Winemaking: Grapes were sourced from sustainably farmed vineyards located on the hills of Bardolino, on the southeastern shore of lake of Garda. The soil is a “stony shingle originating from the Athesian glacier”. Aged in steel vats for 3-4 months.
Tasting Notes: Clear garnet in colour with aromas of cherry, strawberry and hints of earth. Packed with cherry flavours, [red, morello and black] with engaging hints of hibiscus and fennel. Concentrated fruit notes linger on the dry finish. A simple, friendly, fruity glass to enjoy on its own or with lighter dishes.
Pairing Suggestions from the Winery: Savory light Italian pasta dishes, vegetable entrées such as melanzane alla parmigiana (aubergines parmesan style), light meat dishes and fresh cheeses.
