Sangue di Giuda : The wine of Judas

 TAGS:The wine of Judas (Sangue di Giuda) is called in this way for its intense ruby red color with purple and bright flashes. It is originated from Italia. The legend says that Judas, after betraying Jesus, returned to his land as a sign of repentance and more specifically to the city of Oltrepo. The locals recognized him and tried to kill him.

Wine against stress

We know that wine has many properties. It maintains heart rate, is an antioxidant and provides general health. Many doctors recommend drinking one or two glasses a day.

It also serves to reduce the stress. A study of the University of Sunderland in England analyzed the drinking habits of five different groups of workers, both public and private sector between 21 and 55 years old. It states that British consumers who drink wine use it as a stress reducer.

This happens much more in the middle class workers. In fact, it establishes that they can drink wine to escape, for example, after a tiring day. The choice is based on the knowledge of each drink when choosing the type of drink they want, either for dinner or for a quiet drink.

Research of the University of Sunderland concluded that there is a common perception among some groups of people who regularly drink wine at home to combat stress. And it states that they normally have a low consumption, regulated, studied and nothing problematic.

And that wine, particularly red wine, provides minerals for the body, such as zinc, magnesium, iron and potassium, as well as improving blood circulation in the brain.

Wine is an anti-stress drink, since the percentage of alcohol is relatively low and acts directly as relaxing in the brain.

Does it mean that a good Rioja wine will help you be more relaxed? By the way, today I recommend two great wines for you:

Sweet wines from southern Spain

 TAGS:Spain is one of the countries of the world in which the quality and variety of wine is more prominent internationally, especially since, in recent decades, local producers, institutions and numerous appellations of origin have taken care of these areas, traditionally reserved to a few varieties.

Apart from the famous wines -reds and whites- of Rioja, Ribera del Duero and Penedes, to name just a few appellations, the sweet, fortified or 'generous' wines have always been placed among the most consumed varieties, especially Sherry, thanks to the success they have had for centuries in the British Isles and other European countries.
