Very Valentino

Let love bloom with Basadone as Vino helps you rediscover the lost art of romance this weekend


This couple has rekindled the fire in their relationship thanks to Basadone (although I don't imagine their conversations to be particularly stimulating). Now you can do the same!

Looking to reawaken dormant romantic passion this Valentine’s Day? It seems 2/14 can sometimes bring out the cynic in all of us, but if your flickering embers of romance are longing to be set ablaze, Vino may have found a wine which can help do just that.

1214From legendary Langhe producer Castello di Verduno comes a wine of rare power able to put the seductive swing back into San Valentino: Basadone. Made using the little-known Pelaverga grape, indigenous to the area around Verduno near Alba, the wine is so-called (Basadone comes from “bacciadonne” meaning “lady-kisser”) for the variety’s supposed natural aphrodisiacal properties. We can’t guarantee love at first sight, but your Valentine is sure to fall for Basadone‘s lush, velvety texture, delicate spices and intoxicating floral aromas. And if things improve from there, you’ll know who (or what) to thank.

    All I can say is that I drank some Basadone at Centovini on Monday night and suddenly, I was transformed in Tony Manero — ripped and all (“don’t touch the hair”). What happened next? Well, the rest is history…
