On the occasion of this special birthday, the bottle of Alta Langa Hundred Sixty Four 2012 shows an original lithographic print of the Fontanafredda estate, which has been digitized and reproduced with a white silk-screen printed directly on glass and embellished with gold leaf. The print portrays the estate between 1900 and 1918 in one of its heydays, during its largest commercial expansion, counting 200 employees and more than 40 families residing in the village.
