Azienda Agricola La Colombiera is located in Castelnuovo Magra, near La Spezia, in the area rising above the archaeologic site of the ancient town of Luni, where Liguria and Tuscany meet. The owner’s family, from one generation to the next, have been growing vines since the late 1970s, in a hilly area close to the sea, prevailing over the rock-hard soil. Age-old and top-quality grape varieties, such as Sangiovese and Vermentino, enhance the main characteristics of the soil whilst preserving the substance.

The winery’s symbol is the Menhir, an ancient and enigmatic figure carved in limestone and made during the age of copper and iron (between the 4th and 1st millennium BC) which was found in the Lunigiana area. It is depicted on the wine labels, created by Artevino Studio, in a modern version, as a symbolic bridge connecting the past and the present. The symbol stands out on the labels with the oblique punch that reinforces the contemporary style of the project and recognition of the bottles.

The graphics for both the wines in the range are black and white except for one colour element – the winery logo. The Vermentino wine has a logo in a blue-green colour, identifying the Vermentino base as well as the colour of the sea and the sky. The most exclusive wine, Celsus, has a copper colour logo as reference to the age of copper and of the Ligurian sun. To enhance the elegance and the recognizability of the wine bottles, the capsules match the logo colours.

These labels are printed on Tintoretto Gesso Ultra WS, the Arconvert’s self-adhesive paper. This pure ECF pulp paper is felt-marked and has a wet strength treatment.

The labels of these two Vermentino white wines are printed with 2 screen printing colours and embellished with a hot foil.
