“The label for this special Riserva was created by Ugo Nespolo, one of the greatest exponents of Italian Pop Art. During an exhibition of his work held at Art Park La Court, Nespolo remained fascinated by these places. We therefore decided to commission him for the creation of the work Porte Sulle Colline, now exhibited in our park. Nespolo fell so much in love with our Barbera d’Asti La Court, to the point which together we decided to realise a special and rare Riserva, for which he would create the label”.
