Tasting Notes





The third wine of the estate and one that was produced since 2003, Le Difese is a blend of 70% Cabernet Sauvignon and 30% Sangiovese. Fermentation takes place in stainless steel vats and it is then aged for 12 months in French and American oak barrels and for a further three months in the bottle. The younger addition to the range of Tenuta San Guido is a wine that is distinguished by generous fruit, lively freshness and joyous drinkability.


2018 is a firecracker of a release, marked by an open, aromatic nose redolent of red cherries, wild strawberries, thyme and dried flowers. A mineral, lively freshness frames a joyful, supple palate that burst with juicy notes of red summer berries, red apple skin and blood orange. A lovely, charming wine that is as enchanting as it is drinkable.

An impressive release that speaks volume of the pedigree of Tenuta San Guido’s wines. Guidalberto is a blend of 60% Cabernet Sauvignon and 40% Merlot. A voluptuous nose charged with blackcurrant, black cherries, damson notes is rained in by mineral, almost balsamic hints of black olive, mint, tomato leaf and fresh black pepper. The exuberant nose of youth shouldn’t distract from the...
