Tasting Notes

Le Difese is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon (70%) and Sangiovese (30%). An instantly appealing wine, with lovely depth and length, the bouquet is ripe and sweet with bright red cherry fruit characters and notes of sweet herbs. Succulent cassis flavours on the palate are balanced by fine tannins and a refined mineral quality. This wine is delicious young but it will age well for the next five years or so. Drink 2014 ? 2019.

Reviews & Scores

Subtle ripe aromas of dried berries, spices and cedar follow through to a full body with pretty tannins and a juicy finish. Tight now. One of the best second wines of Sassicaia. Try in 2016.
