Delicate and floral. Ideal as aperitif.

Label

This wine has been embellished with a “concept” label that depicts an optical study taken from the Encyclopédie Diderot, a huge encyclopaedia published in the XVIII century, which represents an important achievement following a long period of compiling a universal compendium of knowledge. It is the first example of a widely popular and successful encyclopaedia.
Inspiration for this label came from the film “The Draughtsman’s Contract”, written and directed by the British film director, Peter Greenaway, which re-proposes, in a eighteenth century key, the theme of the relationship between reality, an ambiguous topic in itself, and his representation which, rather too long to be explained, makes reality even more complex and impenetrable.
