Wine and Vintage
"...the oenological choice to use in equal measure organic grapes of the company's production of Ciliegiolo and Pinot Noir allows us to combine the sweetness of the former with the particular aromaticity of the latter. The early harvest is partly due to the type of grape varieties used and partly to the desire to preserve the acid-base necessary to enhance the aromas and freshness of the wine..."

Spicchio is the name of the wine as well as the name of the rooster represented in the label synonym of liveliness.
The historical label has been redesigned in order to condense more information in a smaller label. The name of the wine in blue to remember the sky and the sea; then the blend, the vegan and organic logos.
At the foot of the label the brand with its motto. All of this has been thought in order to leave ample space to the pink color of the wine on the friendly, transparent bottle.
