Wine Label

Sinfarosa Zinfandel brings American quality grapes and Italian craftsmanship together. A special product with a brand-new label!

By on September 2nd, 2020

Sinfarosa Zinfandel, Primitivo di Manduria, is a legendary wine produced in Puglia with the renowned Zinfandel grapes originated in the US and the only non-American wine admitted by Zap (Zinfandel grape variety advocates and Producer).

By now it’s proved that Zinfandel and Primitivo are genetically identical, but 20 years ago the only way to study the two varieties was to plant them side by side.

That’s why Agricola Felline grafted scions of Californian Zinfandel coming from one of the most important American vineyard, the famous Geyserville of Ridge.

The black soil creates the particularly spicy taste of this Primitivo with hints of black pepper, rhubarb, licorice and a complex and persistent tannic structure. The ageing in French and American oak barrels intensifies the mentholated and balsamic notes.

zinfandel - before afterAfter 20 years of successful production the winery decided to aim for a complete restyling in order to gain appeal and recognition. The brand-new design created by Marianna Greco wants to convey a synergy between Italian tradition  and more international and modern design elements, keeping some details of the previous label and enhancing the design through colors, innovative materials and varnishes.

The 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 Ispira collection by ManterTM offers four different natural self-adhesive papers made with pure chlorine free cellulose (E.C.F.) and FSCTM certified that, thanks to their special surface treatment, allow an excellent printing performance even in case of very complex graphic projects. Combined with the Ultra WS treatment on the front label, which avoids the formation of wrinkles and reduces the absorption of water on the surface of the paper, these premium papers are the optimal solution for the design and printing of original and innovative labels.
