Tasting Notes

This is a very attractive and aromatic wine with vibrant blackberry fruit characters mingled with crushed flowers, wild herbs and a bright balsamic note. The palate is elegant and silky textured with a lovely freshness and fine length. A wine which is delicious from release, it also offers incredible value. Anticipated maturity 2016 to 2020.

Reviews & Scores

San Guido's 2014 Le Difese is fresh, lifted and very pretty today. Crushed flowers, sweet red cherries and mint are laced together in a gracious, light-weight red to drink now and over the next handful of years. Rose petal, raspberry and sweet spices notes add nuance on the open-knit finish. The 2014 is best enjoyed over the next few years.
87 Points, Antonio Galloni
