Careful selection of the bunches by hand. Soft destemming of the grapes. Primary fermentation in stainless steel vats at a controlled temperature (27-28 ° C). Maceration on the skins for 13-15 days for Cabernet S. and for about 14-18 days for Sangiovese, with successive stages of pumping over and frequent delestage to encourage aromatic extraction and soften the tannins. Malo-lactic fermentation carried out in steel and concluded towards the end of November.
Le Difese 2020 is bright and delightfully fruit forward with delectable red cherry, plum and blackcurrant. On the palate, the crisp acidity and plush, ripe tannins frame a beautiful array of rich red and black fruits, tinged with Mediterranean herbs, salty black olives and a soft earthiness. An utterly moreish wine perfect for everyday enjoyment. Drink 2022 – 2024.
