Description Sub Region Producer Notes
2016 was a benchmark vintage in Bolgheri; hot and dry but with terrific diurnal temperature shifts, this growing year was ideal, and the radiant ’16 Le Difese reflects its vintage in its perfume, structure and fine-grained tannins. Juicy raspberries and cherries dance on a foundation of cigar wrapper, warm earth, new leather, and crushed wildflowers. Succulent yet muscular, this wine glides with silky sophistication to a focused, grippy and satisfying finish. 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 ten months in oak barrels that previously aged the estate’s Sassicaia and Guidalberto.
