The Oddbins Take

There’s a fine line between superstition and an unprovable theory and it’s a line that all of us sometimes cross, however rational we think we are. The same people that mock proponents of astrology, believe their sports team lost because they weren’t wearing their lucky underwear and forgot to change drinking hand at half time.

Despite most people’s raised eyebrows at someone mentioning star signs or their concern they will soon be mauled by an Andean mountain cat because Jupiter is the 4th house, lunar cycles undoubtedly influence the world around us.
You might be sceptical when we tell you Castello di Argiano Sesti make this wine in line with lunar cycles, but something is going right because it is exceptional! With tart red cherries, currants, tomato leaf, black pepper and balsamic lead the palate on a well-balanced, medium body with ripe, finely grained tannins and a racy acidity; this wine has a complexity and definition that is often not found in non-lunar wines. Is the moon the reason? We don’t know and frankly we’re not all that bothered, it’s delicious either way.
