CCA Edition 2013
The choice for the first edition was Ernst Billgren, one of Sweden’s most famous contemporary artists, whose talent can be found not only in painting and sculture, but also in other arts, such as music, literature, design, cinema and scenography. Labels with a reproduction of his work of art were used for a valuable selection of bottles of Costasera 1998.
"Grapes that are used to make wine can only thrive in a favourable natural environment, cultivated in bygone fashion by people who pass traditions down, from father to son, perfecting the art of winemaking over time. In my picture the deer and its fawn symbolise care passed down through the generations, the dwellings express the desire for a prosperous society based on viticulture, while the grapes represent the richness of the wine itself. Nature and culture, in other words, are the luminous representation of how these two elements combine in a continuous circle. The same circularity that can be found in the shape of the Masi Costasera label which provided the inspiration for the picture.”
