Tenuta San Guido Le Difese 2016
|Brand||Tenuta San Guido|
VinousThe 2016 Le Difese is a gorgeous entry-level wine from Tenuta San Guido. A lovely sense of translucence runs through the black cherry, plum, lavender and mint flavors. I can't remember a Difese with this much sheer finesse and class.
Wine EnthusiastMade with 70% Cabernet Sauvignon and 30% Sangiovese, this offers enticing aromas of black-skinned berry, iris and cedar. The savory, balanced palate delivers red currant, dried black cherry, star anise and white pepper alongside fine-grained tannins. Drink through 2023.
Wine SpectatorA fresh, vibrant version, offering cherry, strawberry, spice and mineral flavors. Youthful, with assertive tannins, so decant or age short term. Cabernet Sauvignon and Sangiovese. Drink now through 2024. 26,000 cases made, 3,000 cases imported.
