In fair Verona there is a wall filled with messages to Juliet, some taped on, others in graffiti as depicted on this wine’s label. This is a blend of dried (apassimento) and fresh corvina, croatina and merlot grapes with cherry and allspice aromas and lots of bright juicy cherry and forest fruit flavours.
