Hermanos Hernáiz Las Cenizas Tempranillo Rioja DOCa

Viñedos Hermanos Hernáiz is the new project of brothers Eduardo and Víctor, who in 1996 acquired Bodega La Emperatriz, named as such because the first owner of these plots was Eugenia de Montijo, wife of Napoleon III and Empress of France. With this new emphasis and with new projects at hand, the winery changed its name but its high-end wines retain the Finca La Emperatriz signature, the name of the ‘viñedo singular’ they come from.

Las Cenizas is a wine that takes its name from one of the most important towns of the D.O.C.a Rioja: Cenicero, in the heart of Rioja Alta, from where the Hernáiz brothers are native. Cenicero means ashtray in Spanish and Cenizas means ashes. A name believed to come from the bonfire ashes that the primitive shepherds left on the surrounding areas of the village. An iconic village for its vineyards and the quality of its wines. Grapes from 3 vineyards: Puentarrón, Los Hundidos and Sanchisnal, planted in the 80’s by the family that owns Viñedos Hermanos Hernáiz.

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.
