Pasqua Primitivo, Valpolicella, Passimento and Appassite

Pasqua Vigneti e Cantine began in Verona in 1925 when the Pasqua brothers began making Veneto wines. The family rapidly expanded, buying vineyards in the 1940s and establishing a bottling plant. The second generation, at the helm today, began exporting, which has seen the company grow significantly. While based on the wines of Veneto, Pasqua has holdings and makes wines from other regions, and prides itself on respecting tradition as well as introducing innovation. The company is one of the most well-known from Veneto. Here, I review four Pasqua reds that show both tradition and innovation. The wines are distributed in New Zealand by Hancocks.
