Casanuova di Nittardi Chianti Classico is a pure Sangiovese from the single vineyard “Vigna Doghessa” in the municipality of Castellina in Chianti. The vineyard lies on a south-east facing hill at 450 meters above sea level and has a soil full of schist stones, which engenders the wine with a fine minerality and pleasant freshness.

As homage to Michelangelo, the unique combination of art and wine is still cultivated today at Nittardi. Every year a well-known artist paints the label as well as the wrapping paper used for the Casanuova di Nittardi Vigna Doghessa wine bottles.

 2021 Art label : Günter Grass or Dario 
Fo create the label and wrapping paper. For the 2021 
vintage, the 41st edition, the Academy Award-winning 
director, producer and screenwriter James Ivory created 
the artworks. Since his days as a student in the USA during 
the late 40‘s, he has had a passion for visual art. As the 
two collages created for the label and wrapping paper 
demonstrate, that passion has never been more alive.
