Il coraggio di Luca

The "fortitudo" a son of art that courage is a virtue innate and rare, this was already well-known in ancient Greece, when the philosophers wondered the origins of behaviors that characterize it. Plato, through the mouth of her Laches, wondered whether "to be braver a man that knows he can lose, rather than a man who remained firm was sure of his victory"; the work does not lead to a conclusion, but leaves the reader to reflect on the essence of this virtue. Our Laches, Warrior of peace is our winemaker. He, fortified by experience and by its roots immersed in the wine world since childhood, has started a project of his own: le vigne di Luca. Today we tasted his Rosé. The main perception emerges from the first Visual impact, and then taste and olfactory-smell is its liqueur essence. It is a Rosé from 15.5% wholly produced and bottled in its company. The maturation of the grapes and the cut of the grapes have engraved on the characteristics of the finished product. An important sugar content has resulted in alcohol played particularly high for a rosé wine. In its originality, the olfactory range typical of the vine primitivo is somewhat conditioned. However, we appreciate its character as the Laches, Warrior of peace.
