05. Leo— 2020 VINO INTREPIDO ‘Blood of My Blood’ Sangiovese

$51.00

Crunchy, fruit forward with spice and texture. This Sangiovese has drive and structure that aligns with Leo’s fire and authority. Pure passion in a glass!

A virile wine that lifts the mood, always. Bold red cherry and strawberry notes with hints of herbs. Lush mouthfeel with lingering tannins, this is a wine that leans into extravagance. Savoury, textural and ultimately egoic.

A charismatic drop for Leo.

Winemaking:
‘For the second time fruit came from the Whistling Eagle vineyard north of Cobinabbin on the pre-Cambrian soils. The fruit was hand-harvested and all but 20% was de-stemmed and placed into a stainless steel fermenter with the whole bunches at the bottom. After alcoholic fermentation the tank was sealed, with a total one month of maceration. After pressing, the wine went into a mixture of mature French and Hungarian oak barriques and one French oak puncheon. The wine had an initial rack and return performed in Spring, then was bottled in January 2021.’

Leo, the endless Summer.

Encountering you is to be saturated in luminous warmth. 

Blindingly radiant, you possess a dazzling energy that must be experienced to be believed. Playful. Resplendent. You are an endless Summer.

Ruled by the sun, you’ve inherited its glow. Gifted with a warmth and generosity the world is drawn to orbit. You emanate vitality; light and salubrious. When we can’t be near you we crave you, like Winter yearns for heat.

Lively, sunny and social. Exuberance and ego. An attractive mix, and your unique blend of charisma. Vivacious. Always the widest smile in the room, beckoning.

Born confidence and slight air of superiority. Of regality. You have a taste for luxury and indulgence.

You crave the attention of others. Deservedly, you are accustomed to captivating an audience. Expression is paramount. Accolades equally so. You need to be seen.

Innately affectionate. You believe a life without love is one not worth living. Strong, courageous tendencies have been known to falter under a romantic guise. Fierce loyalty fast becomes a powerful enemy. Big hearts break hard.

With the brightest of dispositions, you are a life force to those around you. As vibrant as the sun at its zenith.
