Barbaresco DOCGAsili

“The requirement was to create a label for a few particular crus… which did not overlap others, meaning signal a difference that was not perceived as diversity… I sought to use the ingredients of our repertoire not as subjects but as an outline… we decided to focus on blue… leaving the blind embossing with the sole task of revealing the perception of the cross-lines”.

(Giancarlo Ferraris, label designer)
