Tenuta San Guido Le Difese 2015
We're sorry, but this product is not currently available.
'The buzz is back! Italy's most iconic wine estate - Tenuta San Guido - the ground zero for all fine wine made in the country today - has entered an exciting new chapter with a renewed sense of purpose. This change was not sparked by any single event, rather a confluence of events starting with a fortuitous string of great vintages. Driving his Jeep through his vineyards, with all those little Jack Russell heads straining through the open windows, Marchese Nicolo Incisa della Rocchetta has good reason to smile. Much of coastal Tuscany once served as a giant hunting reserve for Florentine nobility.' Wine Advocate

James SucklingA round and delicious wine with bright fruit and fine tannins. Medium body, lovely flavors and a fresh finish. Blend of cabernet sauvignon and sangiovese.
Wine SpectatorDense and taut, with black currant, wild herb and earthy notes. The tannins are rustic, yet there is a lot of sweet fruit. Finishes long. Cabernet Sauvignon and Sangiovese. Best from 2018 through 2024. 26,000 cases made.
Wine AdvocateThe 2015 Le Difese (Cabernet Sauvignon and Sangiovese) offers a smooth and symmetrical interpretation of the vintage with bright fruit flavors of forest berry and wild cherry backed by mild spice and grilled herb. This is an informal and moderately concentrated effort that sports fresh appeal and good acidity. It would make a great pairing partner to a hearty home-cooked pasta dish.
