Vino Volta

09. Sagittarius— 2019 IL MODO Anfora Rosso



Tuscan vibes for the sign who’s likely pining for Italy the most. A vino inspired by Summer in Sicily to tie over Sagittarius. 

Chalky notes of crushed terracotta, sun baked earth, red berries and dried herbs. Sangiovese dominant, this drop is dry and rustic, reminiscent of Etna Rosso. Fine, persisting tannins drive lazy red cherry and plum characters, elongating them. There’s a richness and a depth to the fruit flavours; an ambiguity that only amphora affords.   

Tastes like a sunny, Sicilian afternoon.

Winemaker’s notes

‘Ray and Maree fell in love with the Etna Rosso they drank while in Sicily, the only problem was there is no Nerello Mascalese fruit available in Australia. Some parcels of Sangiovese, Aglianico, Sagrantino, Nebbiolo & Pinot Noir were skillfully blended and aged in amphora with the flavour profile and texture of Sicily always at the forefront.’



Sagittarius Season - November 23 to December 21

Sagittarius, the adventurer.

Fresh and unaffected. You experience life as the adventure you make it. With a contagious energy of spontaneity, bravery and naiveté you are wide open, seeing only possibilities in front of you. This bright-eyed buoyancy never fades. Childlike in your wonder for today and anticipation for tomorrow.

Lively and fun-loving, you are a curious creature. You seek knowledge and adventure to expand your mind. A restless spirit and a mutable sign, you yearn for change and new experiences. You long for freedom and independence and must have space to roam.

Honest, almost to a fault. There is a sincerity and transparency about you. You always have the best of intentions.

Jupiter, your ruling planet, has gifted you with faith, optimism and positivity. Fueled by your fiery nature, you project this energy outward. In the realm of hope you are extremely expansive. Leaning into this you have the ability to affect great change for humanity.

You refuse to accept the seriousness of life. As a jovial Jupiter soul, you find bureaucracy and constraints suffocating. Too much responsibility weighs you down. You are happiest when you are afforded the freedom you so crave.

Powered by mental brilliance, the archer shoots for the stars. Bored by life’s limitations your heartfelt desires lie within another realm. With sparkling intellect, blind optimism and fiery drive, no dream is too big to turn into a reality.
