Review: **+ $$ Passimento, Veneto, Italy, 2012

Check out today's pricing and retail availability for Passimento.

Original tasting and review : This is Passimento, Veneto, Italy, 2012, a Famiglia Pasqua wine finished in the appassimento style of Amarone, made of a blend of 40% merlot, 30% corvina and 30% croatina, finished at 14% alcohol and first sampled 3 years from vintage date, in July, 2015.

In the glass: Deep burgundy brick red, opaque in the center.

On the nose: Poured at room temperature and swirled vigorously, shows bright, deep raisined blackberry.   From the aroma, seems like this will be tangy with bramble notes.

On the palate: The primary elements on the palate in fact show a soft wash of red cherries, quite bright, but in an easy-going robe.  Finish is quick, brisk and clean.

In summary: Overall, garners two stars with a plus for pleasant liveliness on the five-star Spirit of Wine scale.
