2017 Le Difese, Tenuta San Guido, Tuscany (6 x Bottle)

Italy Tuscany Maremma

The 2017 Le Difese (a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Sangiovese) meets its immediate goals as an entry level red. This is an easy-drinking Tuscan blend from a warm vintage that shows dark, ripe fruit nuances over a short and lean mouthfeel. That said, I have always thought that more could be done with Le Difese especially considering its Tenuta San Guido pedigree. There is potential here to make this a better wine for sure.

Generous red fruits, rose petal and spice, framed by soft tannins, define this medium bodied Difese.
