Curating the very best packaging design

Designed by Lorenzo Ottaviani | Country: United States

“Cavalierino is a small winery in the beautiful high hills of Poggiano within a stone’s throw from the historical towns of Montepulciano and Pienza just south of Siena, Tuscany, Italy. 155 prime acres of vineyards, olive groves, woods and cypress trees are bathed in a soft, golden Tuscan light.

“It is very difficult for a new small winery to emerge in the prime wine producing region of Tuscany. My strategic approach embraced such a handicap with enthusiasm – says Creative Director Lorenzo Ottaviani.

“Under my vision, Cavalierino – little horse in Italian – became a metaphor for David against Goliath: the underdog against the powerful and Tuscan wineries. Cavalierino’s wine production is small but the wines have a great personality and are getting noticed by the critics and the public. I designed the Cavalierino’s brand and packaging to be highly distinctive with a clean, fresh, colorful language that is a complete departure from the rhetorical designs employed by the established wineries. In a store environment Cavalierino’s wines command shelf-attention and once you taste them then you fall in love.”

    This is so nicely designed it transcends the cute animal trend in wine packaging the market has grown tired of.

    I have always believed in the power of brilliant graphic design to nourish the soul and the senses…

    Your work reminds me of why that is so.

    Thank you for that!
