The second release of Tentenublo Wines is a limited edition of 1,104 bottles of a unique wine from a very specific plot, Finca Abundillano. Inspired by the name of the wine (ardacho is a type of lizard whose habitat extends into the bushes that grow around the vineyards) we conceived a risky and differential packaging: at first, the bottle is wrapped in a green tissue paper which hides the label, it “hides” the ardacho. On the neck of the bottle, tied with a rope, hangs a booklet with illustrations and texts about the wine and the lizard. To top off the presentation, the mouth of the bottle is sealed by hand with wax. After removing the paper, the interior contains another surprise, an elegant enveloping label, illustrated with a striking collage that integrates different motifs inspired by nineteenth century engravings and represents the ardacho as a character.
