Description Sub Region Producer Notes
 
Ready-to-drink upon release, the sappy ’17 Le Difese is a delicious, open-knit treat! Juicy red and blue fruits layer with fresh loam, baking spices, crushed herbs, and touches of underbrush, dried cherries, and cigar wrapper in the silky, aromatic ’17 Le Difese. Fine-grained tannins cling to the cheeks as the wine’s kinetic acidity powers it to a lingering, precise and food-friendly 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 eight months in oak barrels that previously aged the estate’s Sassicaia and Guidalberto.
