Description Sub Region Producer Notes
 
Although third-tier Le Difese, inaugural vintage 2002, may do the work of the estate's "everyday" wine, when the estate in question is Tenuta San Guido, the “everyday” wine is a reason to celebrate. Ironically, the Le Difese, a Cabernet and Sangiovese blend, is even more difficult than Sassicaia to obtain, for the estate produces very little and exports even less--most of the 500 cases produced goes to local Bolgheri restaurants. Le Difese allows wine enthusiasts to experience the glory of Tenuta San Guido every day. Ripe, round fruit, moderate alcohol, and lively acidity from the disparate weather conditions of the vintage make the 2012 Le Difese remarkably balanced. Ripe, rich fruit, herbs and spice, a lingering vanilla note typify this juicy, soft and fresh everyday wine.
