Since 1981, Nittardi has paid tribute to Michelangelo every year by having internationally recognized artists such as Hundertwasser, Yoko Ono, Günter Grass or Dario Fo make the label and a wrapping paper.The artwork for the 2018 vintage was entrusted to the artist Johannes Heisig.The two paintings that the German artist has dedicated to this Chianti Classico are a hymn to the earth and the fruits that bring joy and seduce us.While the wrapping paper is his personal vision of the Vigna Doghessa vineyard, he painted for the label Bacchus offering Sibyl a glass of wine, always being the muse of many artists.
