Cabernet sauvignon, Drinking Now 2020
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
A vivid mid-ruby, dried rose petal and balsamic scented reserva, still showing vibrant raspberry fruit and fresh acid. Chocolate-coated cherry character with hints of vanilla, but in a far more restrained way than in classic Rioja wines. Superb structure with ripe, fine-grained tannins and a tar-like grip towards the end of the long finish. Armit Winesmore
