Tenuta San Guido Le Difese 2015 750ml
Tenuta San Guido Le Difese 2015 750ml
Price: $29.99

The child of an “excellent” growing season, the ’15 Le Difese redefines the easy-drinking red. Ripe red and blue fruits layer with warm spices, grilled herbs, newly turned loam, rain-spattered wildflowers and a touch of crushed minerals. Graceful yet a little wild, this Le Difese marries its sweet fruits with savory herbs, and complements its bright acidity with chewy, sturdy tannins to make a highly food-friendly wine. The third label of Tenuta San Guido, the pioneering Super-Tuscan estate that transformed Italian winemaking in the late '60s, Le Difese provides a rare opportunity to experience a taste of the legendary Sassicaia for just $30. A blend of 70% Cabernet Sauvignon and 30% Sangiovese grown in limestone-rich soils, Le Difese ferments in temperature-controlled stainless steel and ages for a year in oak barrels that previously aged the estate’s Sassicaia and Guidalberto. more info
