I Giusti & Zanza Belcore Toscana Rosso IGT

L’Elisir D’Amore is an Italian 19th century opera buffa by Gaetano Donizetti. It tells the story of the charlatan pharmacist Dulcamara whose “love filter”, in truth a bottle of Bordeaux, helps Nemorino conquer the heart of the beautiful Adina despite Belcore’s interference. A complex tale of ploys and passion, with the sweet tones of love and the bitter taste of jealousy – it offers a representation of wine as a powerful love filter that is fitting with the charming wisely-balanced intensity of I Giusti & Zanza wines.
Belcore is the winery’s second label, first harvested in 1998. Since then, it has been the estate’s best sold wine, both in Italy and abroad.
Belcore is a classic Tuscan blend composed mainly of Sangiovese and Merlot, giving a wine of great softness.
The agricultural conduction is organic and biodynamic in the vineyards.
