Château du Tertre Margaux Grand Cru Classé AOC

Château du Tertre takes its name from the superb group of graves, culminating point of the Margaux appellation, on which is erected the castle. This millennial property of 52 hectares (of which 18 are grown biodynamic) enjoys worldwide renown thanks to the prestigious Grand Cru Classé de Margaux title it has had since 1855.
The arrival of Eric Albada-Jelgersma, the current owner, in 1997 will profoundly mark the field. A restructuring program and heavy investments have restored its reputation to Château du Tertre. This program has resulted in upgrading technical equipment, reducing yields and setting up a new team. Under the direction of Alexander Van Beek ,Eric Boissenot for winemaking, the vineyard has significantly increased the quality of these wines, giving Château du Tertre its character and nobility, where silky and freshness are combined to bring you the elegance expected of a great Margaux wine.

Château Durfort-Vivens Margaux Grand Cru Classé AOC

Located between the villages of Margaux, Cantenac and Soussans, the vineyard of Durfort-Vivens seats on the ridge of deep gravels. These gravels were brought by the Garonne river in the Quaternary era. This great terroir offers early maturity and allows the Cabernet Sauvignon to fully express finesse and silky tannins, a guarantee of freshness and elegance typical of the great Margaux, also in their second wine Vivens. At Château Durfort-Vivens the constant quest for a natural balance between the vineyard and its terroir is reflected by the use of traditional cultural practices. During the second year in biodynamic conversion, in this 2014 you can be able to observe the balances favored by the vine with its environment in this lovely, elegantly understated claret.

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.

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.

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.
