QUANTITY AND DAILY LIFE, THE RIGHT DOSE AND ERGONOMICS OF THE PACKAGE
The tradition of the Mediterranean diet, in which wine has always played a leading role, favors moderate consumption during meals.
Leonardo was the precursor of drinking responsibly, which means drinking wine of high organoleptic quality, avoiding excesses and accompanying it to daily food.
He wrote in his Codex Atlanticus (page 213): “Wine should be moderated, little and often. Not outside of a meal, nor on an empty stomach”.
We have transferred his teachings into this wine, the Leonardo Geniale, which is proposed in 187 ml format for those who want to enjoy the pleasantness of a good wine, perfumed and fragrant, in the right dose and with a practical packaging ideal to accompany every meal everywhere.
Red wine according to Leonardo: the fragrances of the perfect grapes, a consistent taste, well-balanced and as universally pleasant as the fruit itself.
THE GENESIS OF THE GENIALE LEONARDO’S LOVE FOR WINE
Leonardo da Vinci was the son and grandson of wine producers and his family owned several vineyards in the countryside of Vinci. Leonardo immediately became interested in the subject, becoming, with his writings on wine, an expert agronomist and winemaker.
The wine was regularly inserted by Leonardo in his shopping lists, perhaps next to a drawing of unsurpassed beauty or near an important scientific demonstration.
Thus we know from Leonardo himself that he loved to drink a glass during meals. And from his Codex Atlanticus (sheet 188) we learn his high spiritual conception of the effect of wine on man:
“Already the wine entered the stomach...already the soul of that begins to abandon the body; he has already turned to the sky, he finds the celabro (the brain), the cause of division from his body ...…”.
Leonardo loved drinking a pleasant wine. To obtain the desired result, he outlined the technical, viticultural and oenological methods to be followed in order for the product to be of excellent quality.
We at Cantine Leonardo da Vinci resumed his teachings and created Leonardo Geniale, the wine produced according to the Leonardo® Method.
