Giaconda Warner Vineyard Shiraz

Giaconda wines have a super-cult status and, given the tiny production, are extremely difficult to find; they are sold chiefly through restaurants and by mail order. All have a cosmopolitan edge befitting Rick Kinzbrunner’s international winemaking experience.
Compelling and remarkably perfumed, this Shiraz from Warner Vineyard is feminine and highly aromatic on first impression, and, as each layer is peeled away, the beautiful elements of Shiraz are slowly revealed.

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.

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.

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.
