Composed of three wines — two reds and a white — the Librottiglia line is distinguished by its catchy title (a clever combination of the Italian words for “book” and “bottle”) and its clever packaging.
With a clean, minimalist design, a colorful graphic, and information about the grape variety, year, and region of its contents, each bottle’s label appears ordinary until you tug at the twine tied around it…
…and voila! You’ll discover that the “label” is actually a tiny book!
Each bottle of the Librottiglia line has a short story as part of its label which perfectly fits the drink inside.
For example, the tale “A Frog in the Belly” by Patrizia Laquidara is an intriguing fable which complements the uncommon personality of the red Anthos, and Regina Marques Nadaes’s “I love you. Forget me” is as intense as the ruby red Nebbiolo Roero it accompanies.
Currently, the short stories on 375ml bottles are available only in Italian, but hopefully it won’t be long before an English version pops up on the scene in the form of some literary libations.
