Twelve signs, twelve wines, each with its own, suitable for the characteristics dictated by the stars: white or red, still or moved, it's a matter of taste … and zodiac
The beginning of a New Year always brings a breath of attention to the zodiac: let's see how the signs change during the year and which wine can be the best for everyone.
Brave, independent, impetuous, passionateimpulsive, sometimes a little irrational, but also very elegant. The ram brings with it all the essence of the spring that begins, of a new season that is born. Its wine must never be banal: it must contain joy and strength. Perfect effervescence and temperament of a great Champagne. With its aroma, its complexity, its power and its elegance it offers, like Aries, an ideal balance between restlessness and lightness, depth and delicacy.
Think well before you act, to get what you want. Tireless, stubborn, has a strong sensuality and a great propensity for beauty. His glass must be filled with a powerful wine. A Primitivo di Manduria, majestic and fascinating like him: with its intense and elegant ruby red color, its ample and enveloping perfume, with its warm softness it is the ideal choice.
Ambiguous? Maybe. Certainly mobile, restless. Curious and intellectual, twins know how to create and communicate, they are bright, often exuberant and love the chatter but also the good things in life. For them, wine is sharing, and in their glass the most convivial wine of all is perfect: Prosecco, provided it is excellent. A Valdobbiadene Prosecco Superiore DOCG, possibly "Rive", that is the product of those steep, sloping, but also highly prized soils that represent the "cru" of Prosecco. Proposed in the dry version, soft and sweet, it can be a pleasant aperitif but also a perfect accompaniment to dry desserts and fruit tarts. A duality worthy of Gemini.
In leathery shell to defend from the outside world. Inside a sweet, sensitive soul. Dear and capable of truly loving, perhaps a little lazy, sometimes nostalgic, tenacious and protective, he will find joy in a glass of sweet wine, but at the same time complex, like him. Maybe a Moscato Giallo Passito from South Tyrol: a wine of great balance and complexity that collects the heat of the last rays of sun that illuminate the grapes before harvesting. A wine that, like the sign of cancer, seems to have inherited a nostalgic mood and a sweet heart.
Regale, solar, generous, proud, self-confident. Leone has the summer sun in it, and asks for a Mediterranean wine: a Greco di Tufo with golden reflections and a fruity aroma, distilled in summer and with personality.
Attentive to every detail, precise, perfectionists. Order and method are at the service of success, always and in all fields. They can't not love the Pinot Noir: the right attention always makes it a perfect wine, in every expression. Red, still white, rosé but above all sparkling: refined, fresh and full.
L'equilibrium first of all. In relationships with others and with themselves. In the choices. A lot of diplomacy, few conflicts, but a great desire for serenity, to fully experience the joys of life. So what better than a rosé? Perfect harmony, equidistance in colors and senses. Its wine is a rosé, a Sicilian IGP Terre, which shines with ancient coral pink and smells of small red fruit, but also of flowers and Mediterranean aromatic herbs: a feeling of perfect well-being for this sign.
It is a true seducer. Charm, mystery, occult are keywords for him, which are associated with a subtle and cutting sense of humor. It can be intimidating, but even the scorpion melts in front of a glass of good wine: red or white? The important thing is that it is stopped. The ideal choice for him, however, is a Sauternes: a wine that like him is a universe apart, which communicates an irresistible charm.
It has fire inside. The desire to discover, to travel, to go on an adventure are its distinctive features, as well as being suspended between instinct and rationality. Confident and impulsive, he will let himself be seduced by a warm and dreamy red, sincere and never predictable. A Chianti Classico DOCG, intense ruby red, fragrant with ripe red fruits, fresh and round.
Tenacity, patience, prudence, stubbornness, a certain hardness. A difficult character that of Capricorn, proud, sometimes lonely, but also loyal and sincere, lover of tradition but endowed with a personal elegance. Its wine is red, rossissimo. But he has bubbles, like a touch of irony to soften the points of his character and to accompany the cuisine he loves most. It's a Lambrusco di Sorbara DOC the wine that will bring out the most generous side of Capricorn, with its dry and savory taste, with its pleasant bouquet and its foam.
Free, visionary, with his overflowing creativity he can change the world, and make it a better place. The aquarium is effervescence, confidence and color, bubbles cannot be missing from its glass, preferably with a touch of pink. A Franciacorta DOCG Rosé he brings the scents and nuances of dawn into the glass, and seems to have been made on purpose to toast the beginning of a new era.
The emotion to the nth degree. Pisces dream, love, are passionate, they get excited and know how to move. Of course, they are a bit changeable, but their charge is inexhaustible. In the glass, as in life, they seek suggestions, sensations. A Bolgheri Rosato it is the right choice: it gathers the air and the horizons of the Tuscan sea, combines freshness and body, changes in the glass with the charm that distinguishes those born under the sign of fish.
