LABEL OF THE YEAR 2020:
TERRE DI OFFIDA DOC PASSERINA PASSITO 2011 “ANIMA MUNDI”
Design: Andrea Castelletti – Milano
The term Anima Mundi – The world soul – represents the intrinsic connection between all things, an intangible force linking all living beings on the planet. Their connection to the world is mirrored by the connection that the soul has to the human body.
With such an ancient word the Anima Mundi wine by the winery Cantina dei Colli Ripani has the ambition to represent the connection between the territory, its people and its traditions. This stunning and complicated label is printed on Arconvert’s Ispira Blue Saggezza Ultra WS, one of the beautiful Ispira pure natural ECF pulp papers with a special soft surface finish. The material’s beautiful colour goes in perfect contrast with the wine amber shades, thanks to the special die-cutting and partial removal, which allows the see-through effect that makes the blue and the amber colors stand out. Combined with the ultra WS treatment avoids the formation of wrinkles and reduces the absorption of water on the surface of the paper.

COORDINATED IMAGE 2020, Gold Award for the 2018-2019 Red Wines category and Gold Award for the spirits category (not from grapes origin):
ALBUM DI FAMIGLIA
Design: Spazio di Paolo – Spoltore (PE)
The design starts from authentic pictures from the early 20th century, like a family album, one you can find in every home, beautiful memories of past times, where rhythm was given by nature and harvest rituals. These three labels are printed on Arconvert’s Picasso X-Dry and Cotone Bianco Ultra WS resulting in a perfect mix of sustainability and performace, for premium products. An uncoated, felt-marked premium paper featuring the X-Dry™ technology to preserve the initial label opacity and integrity and a tree-free paper made with the yearly renewable cotton fibers and combined with the Ultra WS™ treatment which acts as a barrier ensuring greater adaptability of the label on the bottle and preventing deformations, wrinkles and bubbles. A stunning result, also awarded at the Dieline Award competition (read the full article here: https://bit.ly/3iCzhXU ).
GOLD AWARD for the sweet and liquorous wines’ category:
MOSCATO D’ASTI DOCG “PAIÈ” 2018
A beautiful and sustainable label on Cotone Bianco aimed at reviving the bouquet of white flowers typical of Moscato d’Asti DOCG: Lily of the Valley, Orange Blossom, Elderflower Flowers, Thorn White Flowers and licis. The design plays with the precious felt-marked texture of this natural paper, and bright-foil as well as braille varnish to create an elegant and fresh label, cherishing nature and spring.
GOLD AWARD for the 2017 and previous years Red Wines category:
PUGLIA IGT NERO DI TROIA “LAMPYRIS” 2015
Design: Spazio di Paolo – Spoltore (PE)
“Lampyris” takes inspiration from the firefly and its ability to light everything up, a valuable insect that comes to life in the dim light of the woods and the vineyards. This ambitious packaging printed on Arconvert’s Cotone Bianco Ultra WS creates thanks to a special varnish of phosphorous, a luminescent effect where the firefly on the label, like the insect, comes to life at night.
BRONZE AWARD for the 2017 and previous years Red Wines category:
TAURASI DOCG “CONFINI” 2015
Client: Cantina Camusi – Montemarano (AV)
This elegant label for Cantina Camusi is an ode to the Irpian tradition, to the farmers that used to cultivate the land with ancient methods and tecniques to create a unique wine, a label embroided in a floreal motif like a grandmother’s needlecraft topped with an elegant golden lettering.
The label was printed on Materica Gesso UItra WS self-adhesive paper, a natural paper, made from cotton, recycled fibres and pure cellulose. Combined with the Ultra WS treatment, an extrusion which ensures greater flexibility and adaptability of the label on the bottle, the memory effect of the paper is reduced and the formation of wrinkles and bubbles is not a problem anymore.
GOLD AWARD for the Sparkling Wines’ category:
VINO FRIZZANTE METODO CLASSICO ANCESTRALE 2019
The word Ancestral, from the Latin “antecessor”, literally means: “belonging to the ancestors“. Ancestral like the mathod “Sur Lie”, which experts claim to be the oldest method in the production of sparkling wines. Therefore this label has been dedicated to the study of the stars, to the careful eye of the astronomer and his constellations.
This shiny and elegant label was printed on Ritrama’s Starlight WS Barrier, a premium paper with a particular embossing and pearlescent coated effect.
GOLD AWARD for the spirits and for the Packaging Box categories:
DISTILLATO DI AGLIANICO IRPO”2017
The label for this precious grappa is printed on Arconvert’s Tintoretto Black Pepper Ultra WS, which combined with Clear Gloss allows the particular technique of glass decal. With this technique we are able to see the beautiful, evocative illustration of the wolf through the glass, on the back of the bottle. For the back label BasileADV chose a Tintoretto Gesso H+O Ultra WS to underline the contrast. The Tintoretto premium range presents FSCTM certified, felt-marked papers, with the Ultra WS treatment which prevents the formation of wrinkles and the deformation of the label in difficult situations like extreme temperature changes and humidity. Additionally, Tintoretto black pepper is a pulp-colored paper, which gives an incredibly refined touch to dark bottles and avoids showing the typical white borderline of printed black labels.

GOLD AWARD for the liquors and Vermouth categories and BRONZE AWARD for the spirits category (not from grapes origin):
“NO MAN’S SPACE” SERIES – 2019
Grafica: Spazio di Paolo – Spoltore (PE)
The ancestral space, as physical dimension of freedom and defeat of limitations, inspiration for the human race. This is No Man’s Space. The minimal simplicity of the black and white contrasts, the golden foil glimmering effects and the three-dimensional details make these three labels, on Arconvert’s tree-free Cotone Bianco Ultra WS and the brand-new Cotone Nero Intense, unique and outstanding.
