Visual Treats – Some of my favorite Italian wine labels

August 15, 2012 at 7:19 pm 4 comments

I’ve tasted several hundred Italian wines from every region of the country over the past few months for an important project I’m working on (more on that in a few weeks). I’m getting there, but have a lot more to taste, so today, just a fun post displaying some of my favorite Italian wine labels. God knows there are hundreds, perhaps thousands of wonderful labels out there, especially the classically designed ones that adorn the products of many famous Barolo, Brunello and Amarone producers. For this display however, I thought I’d go with some of the more distinctive modern designs, all graphically unique and beautiful.


What I love about these labels is that they are beautifully designed with distinctive graphics, yet you have no problem identifying the wine and the producer in an instant.

Do you have any cutting edge Italian labels you love? Let me know!

    Being an artist and a wine lover, I often select my wine not only by the grape and food to accompany it, but by the beautiful label as well! I recently bought a bottle of Carpineto DOGAJOLO Rosato…the label featuring the most beautiful and delicate bouquet of flowers and grapes–their white and red labels are also beautiful!

      Yes, I am familiar with that Carpineto label – it is beautiful. I’ve known Antonio Zaccheo from Carpineto for years – he’s a very charming individual.

      Thanks for your comment.

    One of the best I know is from Fabrizio Dionisio, producer of a wonderful Cortona Syrah. His beautiful labels were drawn by one of his kids!
