Tasting notes

Toscana IGT Le Difese has lovely perfumed notes on the nose reminiscent of black fruits and black berries. Supple and fruity attack with a good structure in the mid palate. Good freshness towards the finish.

Italy

Toscana

Super Tuscan wines also helped the region to gain international recognition for outstanding quality wines based on Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot.

The soils in Toscana are formed from Pliocene and Pleistocene marine sediments, and from Quaternary alluvial and lacustrine deposits. The region is quite hilly, progressing inward to the Apennine Mountains. Here, many vineyards are planted on the higher elevations of the hillsides to benefit from a cooler weather. The soils composition lie mostly on clay, with a great level of nutrients and organic matter.
