Entry Description: The image designed for the Colli Ripani Line is the best possible expression of the concept and the payoff "There's land and there's wine," and describes the territory's value by celebrating the traits and characteristics that make it unique in the world. In fact, every wine is a story of the land it comes from, worthy of being told: the 10 wines in the line play witness to an original short story that tells of the Colli Ripani in 10 chapters. Each bottle is a piece of a puzzle, that when put together gives a complete picture of the Ripatransone territory. An idea that is given life in both the graphics and content of each label: a journey from one wine to another in 10 stages, that tell a unique story together.
