An exhilarating journey through your deepest desires

Battito is a wine with an intense and broad aroma that explodes in the mouth with a full and generous taste, structured and full-bodied. It is the perfect companion for red meats and aged cheeses, enhancing its complexity and depth.

The Latin palindrome "In girum imus nocte et consumimur igni" has ancient origins, and the original author is not known with certainty. However, it is believed to have been created around the 13th century and was used as a wordplay or as a kind of riddle.

The literal meaning of the palindrome is "we wander in the night and are consumed by fire," which depicts a rather eerie and dark image. The symbolic meaning of the palindrome, however, can be interpreted in different ways depending on the context in which it is used.

Moths are nocturnal creatures and tend to fly around flames, often meeting their demise due to their attraction to the light. In this sense, moths could be seen as a symbol of our passions and desires, which attract us like a flame and eventually consume us completely. 

The reference to the Latin palindrome may also suggest a sense of continuity between the past and the present, implying that humanity has always grappled with the same struggle against its own desires and passions, and that this struggle will continue to perpetuate into the future.
