Middle Finger Is The Wine That Gives Zero F*cks

by Bill McCool on 12/17/2020 | 2 Minute Read

Looking to ring in the New Year with a little style, but you're sick of champagne?

Look no further than Middle Finger, Tank Garage Winery's latest offering. With a blend of 95% Barbera, 3% Primitivo, and 2% Graciano, this Red Wine is an Italian blend that's sure to send a not-so-discreet message to 2020 while you Zoom a New Year's party with your closest pals. The label comes courtesy of artist Alessandro Paglia, who created a sculpted gold hand flipping the bird, and it even has a wax-dipped bottle. It's stylish as all get out, and there are definitely no lines to read between in the visual identity.

The perfect bottle for a year that gave so little fucks to begin with.

"Finally, a wine that gives zero fucks.

Middle Finger is about embracing what matters while telling everything that doesn’t to get fucked. And honestly, we couldn’t think of a better way to cap off a year like 2020. So for this wine, we dreamt harder and went bigger than we ever have before. It’s like every moment in our six-year history lead up to this.
