Francois Collard Château La Tour de Béraud

Château La Tour de Béraud is a family estate of 15 hectares, managed by François Collard, located in the southern part of the Rhône Valley in AOP “Costières de Nîmes”.

Pure and elegant, the wines of La Tour de Béraud are made from the noble grape varieties of the Rhône Valley.
Carignan and Mourvedre add complexity and fruitiness to the blend; Marselan brings tannins, colour and tangy red fruit (elderberry); Grenache provides fruitiness and roundness; and Syrah adds colour, finesse notes and a full-bodied flavour.

The attention brought to the winemaking and the ageing is the reason of the existence of this exceptional wine.

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.

I Giusti & Zanza Dulcamara 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.
Dulcamara was the very first Giusti & Zanza label. In its first vintage, 1996, only 3000 bottles were produced – at the time, it was the entirety of the winery’s production. Dulcamara is a classic Super Tuscan composed mainly of Cabernet Sauvignon. In some favourable vintages it is aided by a share of Cabernet Franc, for a total of 60 to 70% of Cabernet. The blend is completed by Merlot and eventually a small amount of Petit Verdot, like it was in this 2013 vintage.

The agricultural conduction is organic and biodynamic in the vineyards.

I Giusti & Zanza Nemorino Red Toscana 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.
The Red Nemorino’s composition varies slightly from vintage to vintage. It is primarily composed of Syrah (about 60%), with additions of Merlot and Sangiovese, as well as small shares of Alicante. The vintage 2016 produce a very small crop of Sangiovese which was replaced by Cabernet Franc, in order to guarantee the same level of freshness and acidity to balance the sweetness and the roundness of Syrah e Merlot.
The result is a wine of great immediacy.

The agricultural conduction is organic and biodynamic in the vineyards.

I Giusti & Zanza Nemorino White Toscana 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.
Nemorino White is composed of two complementary varieties in equal parts: the Trebbiano Toscano, that guarantees excellent acidity and freshness even for the warmest vintages, and the Semillon, that provides the blend with the aromatic complexity lacking in the Trebbiano. A wine of great freshness and complexity.

The agricultural conduction is organic and biodynamic in the vineyards.
