Dulcamara was the very first label from the certified Organic i Giusti e Zanza winery.  It 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 70% of Cabernet. The blend is completed by Merlot and a small amount of Petit Verdot. 

Colour: Dense, deep purple. 

Nose: Scents of berries, blackberries, black currant and blueberries, together with notes of liquorice and crème de cassis.

Palate: Broad and powerful, marking the presence of ripe fruit balanced by a sound acid structure. The tannin has a smooth and velvety texture despite its strong presence.

Finish: Long and juicy, engaging.

Food match: This wine matches well slow-cooked game meat, or braised meat perhaps cooked with the same wine. It is also excellent when matched with fat soft cheeses and truffles.

Winemaking note: The wine’s ageing takes places in 300 and 500 litres medium-toasted French oak tonneaux for 14 to 18 months. Once the blend has settled, the wine rests in a concrete tank and is lightly filtered before bottling. 

Ageing: cellar for up to 15-20 years.

Made with Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and a drop of Petit Verdot, this deeply colored wine offers aromas black plum, dried cherry and clove. The round, ripe palate doles out mature black cherry, blackberry, licorice and black pepper alongside firm, chewy tannins.
