About him: the Moli is an imaginary plant, belonging to the divine kingdom, which appears in Homer's Odyssey (X, 302-306), where it plays a fundamental role in saving Ulysses thanks to the magical properties with which it's endowed. In the tenth canto it was to symbolize the remedy donated by the god Hermes to Ulysses, as an antidote against the potion based on Ciceone offered by the goddess Circe as a gift of hospitality. Thanks to the antidote, Ulysses managed to escape the pig metamorphosis, a fate that fell to his companions.
Some writings associate the herb Moli with the Scilla Marina, represented on the label as a tribute to the Circeo National Park, a wonderful territory located a few kilometers from the Amaseno Valley, one of the historical landmark of Ulysses' mythology. Vinified with the same Maya grapes harvested a week later, Moli is a persistent, savory and marine wine. Length and freshness to the taste, with aromas of bergamot and jasmine. The aging in chestnut barrels gives a slight softness without intrusive hints of wood. An epic wine! :D
