    Delicate features characterise “La Bella”, a red Garnacha by Artiga-Fustel from centuries-old vineyards, charming, refined and elegant. With the intimacy of lace, highly defined and leaving a distinct impression, its strands can be counted as with a thread counting glass.

    La Bella is a disarmingly beautiful and bold Spanish red, from the foothills of
    Zaragoza’s Moncayo Massif. Brimming with elegance, charm and finesse, La Bella
    was born of gnarled Garnacha bush vines of up to 100 years of age. With this age
    comes exceptional beauty, which is harnessed by our winemaker to create this
    lusciously opulent and refined red wine. The handpicked grapes grow in a single
    vineyard in the appellation of Campo de Borja, the region known as The Empire of
    Garnacha for its enviable and highly sought-after fruit. Ageing in French oak barrels
    for a period of six months adds a velvety smoothness and subtle hints of vanilla to
    the peppery spice and brilliant berry aromas of this fine wine. — Artiga-Fustel

    The wine label, printed on mother-of-pearl paper by Chalaguier, combines modified Poster Bodoni Compressed. The letters from “LA BELLA” were modified, not only to replace the stems with lace; the arms of letter L were a slightly shortened. The small print uses Mallory.
