Tasting Notes

Le Difese is a blend of 70% Cabernet Sauvignon and 30% Sangiovese. Instantly appealing with great elegance and length, aromas of ripe, sweet cassis and plum fruit with a lick of spice. Smooth blackberry fruit characters follow with hints of sage and wild herbs balanced by soft tannins. Absolutely delicious now but will age well for the next five years. Drink 2013 ? 2018.

Reviews & Scores

The 2011 Le Difese is a fabulous introductory level red. Freshly cut flowers meld into red berries in a juicy, expressive red that will drink well for the next few years. A soft, creamy finish rounds out this accessible and highly appealing red from San Guido. There is a lot to like here.
