07. Libra— 2020 SOMOS Biodynamic Aglianico


Firstly, the nose is pure poetry. A darling concoction of light florals and sweet, seductive spice. Rose petal, vanilla, cranberry and blackcurrant. There is a smooth roundeness to the palate. Brightness, balance and a subtle savour of wood smoke.

In true Venusian style, this is gorgeous wine. Light in body, yet surprisingly voluptuous. Svelte, silky tannins. Unresisting, but encouraging you to pause just a moment. Light, translucent ruby goodness. Ribena refined.
Perfection in a glass, for Libra.

Picked in April it came in quite cold. About 25% was laid into tank as wholebunches.Sealed the tank and chilled for a cold soak and to start carbonic maceration. We let it warm naturally and wild ferment and was plunged daily by hand. We basket pressed before it finished fermentation to avoid extraction of Aglianico’s typical grip. Matured in 3rd and 4th fill oak, and it sat for 10 months before racking and bottling unfined and unfiltered.

Libra, the beautiful contradiction.

You are a breath of fresh air. Pure charm, captivating and light. Subtle and humbling is your aura of grace. The pacifist. Sensitive, kind and compassionate. You are the solace in a disrupted world.

Your soul’s purpose is to create harmony. To encourage cooperation and inspire justice through your dedicated example. The mediator, delicate in your tact and diplomacy, you brighten the attitudes and solve the problems you encounter. Adept at weighing up the options and considering both sides; you offer guidance in a way that is innately selfless.

This need for calm extends to aesthetic refinement, as inspired by your ruler Venus. You are unwavering in your desire for perfection. Detailed you curate, straighten and smooth your environment to achieve the order you so crave.

You are epitomised by your quest for balance. Pendulous between two poles you are accustomed to the ups and downs. You have created your own sense of equilibrium, comfortably in between and mindfully removed from each extreme. Beautifully detached, you are content to dip your toes in the highs and lows rather than becoming completely absorbed or affected. It is not naive, but rather evolved. Wisely within this place of contentment you ground your existence.

Carefree, you live in the present, unconcerned by the past or with what the future holds. You are incredibly sensitive. Extremely intelligent, yet often gullible. Restless, yet never rushing. You are an unconscious series of contradictions. This trait, framed by your good intentions, only makes you more endearing.

In this pursuit of balance, you are comfortable in flux. Blasé, fun-loving and bright.
