    "Le Difese" Toscana IGT 2022
  • The logo with the stylized compass rose has many wine lovers, Italian and otherwise, dreaming. It is the image of the legendary Tenuta San Guido in Bolgheri, the one where the most famous of Italian red wines, Sassicaia, was born. This Toscana IGT Le Difese is a bit like its younger brother, based on 70% Cabernet Sauvignon and 30% Sangiovese. Processing begins with careful hand selection of the grapes, followed by soft pressing and destemming of the grapes. Fermentation in stainless steel at a controlled temperature, without the addition of external yeasts. This is followed by the malolactic fermentation phase, also carried out in stainless steel, which ends in mid-November. At the end, the wine is left to age for about 8 months in French oak barriques, third passage after Sassicaia. Ruby red in color, the nose reveals a nice olfactory profile, characterized by a certain fruitiness followed by a nice floral tone. In the mouth it is pleasantly spicy, with slightly balsamic notes. Enveloping and fine, fresh and elegant. The beautiful tannic texture is perfectly integrated and opens to a finish of excellent cleanliness and persistence. Perfect companion to great grilled meats and roast chicken with potatoes.

    One cannot think of the village of Bolgheri without referring to the work of Mario Incisa della Rocchetta and the legendary Tenuta San Guido. Before him, in fact, even on the coast not far from Livorno, the grapes grown were those typical of the region, with Sangiovese above all. Mario Incisa della Rocchetta, however, had an intuition and was the first to produce a Bordeaux wine, thus based on Cabernet, on Italian soil. He was convinced, and in hindsight we can say he was right, that the Bolgheri area had a clear resemblance to the Graves area. So it was that back in 1968 Sassicaia was born. And it was an immediate success. The rest is history.
