When fashion meets wine
Before you confuse this Bottega with the luxury cousin of Gucci, let us tell you: this is Distilleria Bottega, the company famous for their luscious grapes and have been in the Guinness Book of World Record for their wines. So now, the experts at Bottega have taken a step further and teamed up with American designer Denise Focil to create a new,luxury wine called the Amarone Bottega, Il vino Prêt-á-porter.
Amarone Bottega is a red wine created from a mixture of different vines, the most important being Veronese Corvina, of which 40-70% is present in the wine. The Rondinella grapes (20-40%) and the Molinara grapes (5-25%) are also essential. Described as a rich full-bodied wine with a flowery bouquet with a slight hint of almonds and noticeable touch of spice, the highlight of Amarone is the vintage suitcase-kind case it comes in.
The bottle features a white leather label and is nestled in a white leather case embellished with embossed black lettering: a collectible piece that reminds of a vintage suitcase. The case is enriched with metal studs (the latest, hottest fashion trend) and with a metal plaque with engraved the Alpinestars by Denise Focil logo.
The leather case and label are Denise’s signature touch, since her specialty is leather. She has been creating leather jackets for the Hollywood stars for almost a decade.
“I wanted to create a luxurious experience, starting from the packaging down to drinking this rich, supple wine! And what could be more chic than timeless, elegant white leather?”, says Denise Focil, explaining the idea behind the design of the Amarone Bottega Il vino Prêt-á-porter’s packaging .
This limited edition wine will be available through selective distribution.
