The history of Pasqua Vigneti e Cantine begins in 1925, when the first generation of the Pasqua brothers came to Verona and established a new business devoted to the trade of wines from their homeland, Apulia. From wine trade and retail, they decided to become a real winery. In a few years, with the acquisition of new vineyards in the Verona area, the company progressively gained importance and visibility.
About the wine.
The name is related to the 11 minutes, the grape skins remain in contact with the must, resulting in the light salmon color for this rosé.
A blend of Corvina 50%, Trebbiano di lugana 25%, Syrah 15% and a splash of Carmenere 10%
First of all it’s not the typical rose blend. The color has a bit the Provence style but the taste is quite different.
In the glass the Provence salmon pink color.
On the nose aromas of peach, raspberries with grapefruit hints and light strawberries.
On the palate nicely balanced with medium+ acidity and tropical fruits and lemon zest flavours , More creamyness and acidity then the French style rose. A little mild tart sweetness at the end.
