Description

IGT (Indicazione Geografica Tipica) wines provide a tier above the basic Vino da Tavola (table wines). They are quality wines that don’t meet the regulations of DOC or DOCG. Super Tuscans being the prime example where the wines are made using unpermitted varieties or in percentages that exceed the rules. Le Difese is made of 70% Cabernet and 30% Sangiovese. The Cabernet well exceeds the regulations for DOC or DOCG wines. The vineyards are close planted, limestone and clay soils, south/south-west facing grown at between 100-300m. All characteristics of a high-quality vineyard. A Cabernet blend that is matured in both French and American oak barrels for 12 months, making for an extremely structured yet supple, delicious wine and the perfect accompaniment to red meat.

Smells

savoury, meaty complex aromas with red berry notes; cranberries, red currants and red liquorice, underpinned by bramble, violets and Asian spice.

Tastes

Red berries persist on the palate, roasted fennel, cured meat and sandalwood flavours flowing into a precise saline texture carving its way through the palate providing the framework and tension. A classic Italian wine with salivating tannins and acid that will cut the richness of all foods, especially roasted red meats and stews. No hurry to drink as it will cellar for 4-5 years, or if you cannot resist, decant just prior to serving.
