Tenuta San Guido, Tuscany
´Le Difese´ · Toscana IGT 2019, Tenuta San Guido, Tuscany
Le Difese is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Sangiovese, which is aged for 12 months in French and American barriques. The color is a lively garnet red, with aromas of wild berries and plums, as well as light floral notes and some undergrowth. In the drink fresh and juicy, of typical Tuscan melting. - Gerardo [TS07/20]

"Bright ruby red with a sparkling core. A touch of reduction on the nose, opening with air on cherries, cinnamon sticks, wild strawberries and bright spice notes. Clear and juicy on the palate, showing good drinkability, pithy salty tannin underpins the finish." - Falstaff

"Fresh fruity nose with notes of small forest fruits, also fine spice; balanced on the palate, juicy texture with a pleasant finish." - Vinum

"Surprisingly pale – more Pinot-like than a Cabernet blend! A sweet-sour red-cherry fruit profile, with a notable herbal edge, perhaps reflecting the higher Sangiovese proportion than 2018. On swirling, some cassis joins the party and there’s a background woody, cinnamon note. That sweet-sour sense comes through on the palate too, with a ripeness of red cherry and strawberry cut through with acidity. Pretty fine-grained, powdery tannins that are more refined than previous Le Difese vintages I have tasted. A touch of alcohol on the finish, but overall an enjoyable, perfumed red." - Jancis Robinson


Gerardo's Notes: 'This cuvèe of Cabernet and Sangiovese reminds me strongly of a well-made Pinot Noir: the wine is delicate and light, supported by silky tannins. On the nose, violets and lilacs, on the palate the typical taste of Cabernet. A wine of good drinking flow, without corners and edges.
