WE CHOSE IT BECAUSE
Despite its high alcohol content it is a red wine to drink in company without too much trouble or thought
“3/4 Red” is the classic everyday red wine, the one that grandpa drank at lunch and dinner, which never tired him out. Sa Defenza’s vineyards are cultivated by the Marchi Brothers according to their philosophy, with respect for the land and the wine drinker. This is why the methods used are totally natural: especially the wild herbs of Sardinia, scientifically certified as amplifying the quality of the grapes, are allowed to grow along the vineyard.
Harvesting is done manually at the beginning of September, and the grapes used for this table red are no less than nine! Fermentation is entirely spontaneous and is followed by a short period of maceration. Maturation takes place in steel and aging in the bottle. “3/4 Red” is not filtered before bottling, just like the wines of the past, the most authentic and natural ones.
The intensity of this red is enhanced by a balsamic note in which all the magnificence of the Mediterranean scrub, so loved and valued by Fratelli Marchi, emerges.
At the table it is a wine for the whole meal and every day, and is best appreciated with a board of cold cuts and cheeses, even better if from the Sardinian tradition. Our advice is to always keep a few bottles in the cellar, it can be the last-minute wild card!
INGREDIENTS AND BENEFITS
A glass of wine a day keeps the doctor away!
It is clear that wine is not harmful to our bodies, as a substance given to us by nature in the form of fruit from which man over the centuries has managed to obtain this heavenly beverage. We can guarantee that our winemakers work by following ancient methods, supported by the aid of contemporary technologies: this is why we feel confident in saying that Italian wine, the real one, is a panacea for body and mind.
The presence of polyphenols in wine (to a lesser extent in white wines and in large quantities in reds, especially when aged) provides constant protection against cellular oxidation, the main culprit of aging and cellular deterioration.
Perhaps even more obvious and important, however, are the psychological benefits that a good glass of Italian wine can give you: the lightheartedness it brings to an evening with friends, the romance it helps to create in a couple’s dinner, the passion it is able to unleash in anyone lucky enough to taste its essences.
We receive your order, prepare it and ship it in 24/36 hours.
We are aware that excellent products need excellent packaging and at the same time we cannot risk damaging in any way the precious Italian culinary jewels: for this reason our warehouse is equipped with temperature and lighting ideal for food storage and the most delicate ones (cheeses, cured meats and craft beers) are stored inside cold rooms. During shipping, on the other hand, each product is protected with the packaging most appropriate to its characteristics.
Cheeses and cured meats, which despite being aged require special care, travel accompanied by a special slow-release gel ice inside isothermal bags: in this way freshness is preserved until the goods arrive at your home.
For our craft beers, which are unpasteurized and therefore more sensitive to high temperatures than normal, we use a special isothermal bubble wrap, which can ensure that the accumulated cold is maintained for the shipping time while protecting the bottles from shocks.
To secure the precious bottles of Italian wine, we have equipped ourselves with special inflatable bags, designed solely for the purpose of immobilizing and protecting this product inside the box.
For jars containing a thousand Italian goodnesses, we use special protective bubble wrap liners.
