Le Difese 2021

  • Sangiovese/Cabernet Sauvignon
  • Italy Tuscany

“Le Difese in 2021 sports a majority of Sangiovese – 55% – in a break from the traditional 70/30 split in favour of Cabernet Sauvignon. Third-generation at Tenuta San Guido, Priscilla Incisa della Rocchetta, explained that this decision was made to enhance the wine’s ‘local Tuscan’ character, and to improve its drinkability early on as ‘a first step into the Tenuta San Guido world.’ While the Cabernet is grown on the estate, the Sangiovese is sourced, as always, from long–term partners based in Chianti Rufina. Bright, incredibly vibrant red, black and blue fruits introduce subtle, finely grained tannins with notes of wood and chocolate. It’s at once juicy, tangy and crunchy, with good ripeness and great acidity. Matured for eight months in used barriques.” 91 points, James Button, Decanter
