Tuscan Wine

A second wine label for you: Brusco dei Barbi 2008.

It's easy to head straight for the ones with crests, swirls and embossing, but I was more attracted to this snappy and sharp text on what was a clean black background before I scraped it off the bottle. It has a 1960s Italian look, like a book cover; and the fiery colours are almost devilish. The bottles looked great side-by-side on the shelf. To make it even better, there's a crest on the back after all.
