From "IL" Rosso to "A.D.1212".
In 1988, upon the release of its first vintage, this wine was named "IL" Decugnano dei Barbi. The name, suggested at the time by Luigi Veronelli, emphasized the bold character of the wine, closely linked to its terroir of origin. It was only in 2015 that it was renamed "A.D.1212".
A mysterious hand.
The label symbolically embodies the presence of those two priests, Pietro and Giovanni, who in the distant year of 1212 were responsible for the wine of Decugnano, as if their hand were still guiding the production of this extraordinary wine.
And the eye that reigns on the label is nothing other than the protective gaze of God, to whom we entrust our viticulture.
The old attire: "IL" Rosso
The old label, a minimalist and oval icon with the inscription "Decugnano dei Barbi," was born in the 1970s, exuding a timeless aura of authenticity.
Over the years, it has been gently updated to reflect the spirit of the times, but never betraying its original essence. And while the world changed around us, this "old" label endures, still present in Umbria, our historic market, where it continues to fascinate those customers who have grown fond of its timeless style.
