Château Pibran Pauillac AOC

Pibran is an old Médoc name. Its highly reputed vineyard covers one of the finest outcrops of Pauillac.

For a long time it belonged to the Billa family, who sold it to AXA Millésimes in 1987. The vineyards were restructured shortly after the purchase, and drainage was improved in order to get the best possible effect of the soil on the wine. Today Château Pibran is carefully produced by the same technical team that makes Château Pichon Baron and then moved in barrel, for aging in the cellars of Pibran.

Feudi di San Gregorio Taurasi DOCG

Feudi di San Gregorio epitomizes the oenological renaissance of southern Italy, promoting a wine culture for the rediscovery of Mediterranean flavours. To promote southern Italy grape varieties, such as Aglianico, Fiano di Avellino and Greco di Tufo, to invest in the land and in the century old tradition of Irpinia wine making, means offering a future to a unique environmental heritage. Established in 1986 by two Irpinian families, Feudi di San Gregorio has its roots in the town of Sorbo Serpico in the province of Avellino.
Balance and elegance, these are the key words to interpret the wine symbol of Feudi di San Gregorio: Taurasi. It is here that the Aglianico has found its land of choice and where it is able to give unique wines, out of time for depth, grace, generosity. A wine, this Taurasi, which shows some of the most true features of the Irpinia territory: an uncontaminated, volcanic, impenetrable wine.

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.
