Description Sub Region Producer Notes
Although Le Difese may do the work of the estate's "everyday" wine, when the estate in question is Tenuta San Guido, the “everyday” wine is still a reason to celebrate--and IWM is one of only two US retailers where you can get it. Ironically, the Le Difese, a blend of mostly Cabernet Sauvignon with one-third Sangiovese, is even more difficult than Sassicaia to obtain, for the estate produces very little and exports even less—most of it goes to local Bolgheri restaurants. Don’t let the value price point fool you: this is a Super Tuscan of the first order and a fabulous food-friendly wine. Blueberries, fresh-cut flowers, grilled herbs and a touch of coffee whirl in this wine’s kaleidoscopic palate that’s made even more thrilling by the wine’s shiny acidity and sinuous tannins. Le Difese is IWM’s fastest-selling wine in the under $30 category; open a bottle at your next BBQ or picnic and see why.
