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.

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.

Price: $34.99

Given that Giacomo Tachis (Sassicaia, Tignanello, Solaia, Solengo, and Camartina, among others) established Agricola Punica as a collaboration between Tenuta San Guido and the Sardegnian cooperative Cantina Sociale di Santadi, it's hardly surprising that Agricola Punica's Montessu is so good. Montessu is an off-the-Super-Tuscan-track wine that owns its intense ruby red color and velvety mouth-feel. Dark fruit aromas, licorice on the nose, an elegant palate, ripe tannins and a long, satisfying mineral-laden finish make the Montessu a stunner of an everyday drinking wine. The perfect weather of the 2011 growing season offers a wine of incredible texture, richness, and weight.
