Nittardi, Casanuova di Nittardi 2013, Art Label, magnum


Casanuova di Nittardi Vigna Doghessa is the Chianti Classico Annata of Fattoria Nittardi. Made entirely from Sangiovese, the grapes of this fine wine grow on a south-facing hill at 450 meters above sea level and has a soil full of schist stones, which engenders the wine with a strong minerality and pleasant freshness. In addition to the traditional wine label, every year since 1981 a limited edition of bottles is adorned with a label and wrapping paper created by a renowned artist – to date, amongst others: Hundertwasser, Janssen, Penck, Yoko Ono, Paladino, Tomi Ungerer, Günter Grass, Kim Tschang Yeul, Dario Fo and Karl Otto Götz.

The artwork for Casanuova di Nittardi 2013 is by the French artist Alain Clément (born 1941).

Now available as magnum bottle – limited only!
