It was dusk (or the aperitivo hour), in ever-magical Piazza delle Erbe, a few years ago. I was out for a post-Vinitaly stroll when I ran into Vincenzo and Tommaso, two wine label artists I’ve known and admired for years, back in their previous professional lives; we’d lost touch in the interim. That evening, after greeting each other with a proverbial and hopeful “sooner or later we’ll work together again”, a new, intense and splendid collaboration got underway, quietly at first and then to our growing, mutual contentment. This collaboration resulted in some of our most successful and exciting projects for niche and mainstream products, restyling and new ideas, in Tuscany and in Piedmont. The hallmark of a full-circle feeling, absolute readiness, dynamic flexibility and a truly extraordinary passion for one’s work.
Don’t be deceived by their perfectly groomed beards, immaculate, old-fashioned look, with nothing left to chance. Appearances aside, these guys work hard, rolling up their sleeves as and when required, working into the early hours; they will never let you down – and they will never stop surprising you.
And they say that wine fairs don’t mean anything anymore!
