Tenuta San Guido Le Difese 2019

Toscana IGT

Breaking the rules, Mario Incisa della Rocchetta planted Bordeaux varietals on his Tuscan estate and in the 1960s released the now legendary Sassicaia. Le Difese is the supple, earlier-drinking release. Cabernet and Sangiovese, it's silky and fresh.

For years, all but the wealthiest wine lovers could only look upon Sassicaia, one of the world’s greatest Cabernet Sauvignons, with envy, due to its price. La Difese was introduced in 2003 to meet demand for wines from this highly acclaimed estate, and to do so at a more accessible price level. The wine is a blend of 70% Cabernet Sauvignon and 30% Sangiovese, and aged for 12 months in French and American oak barrels, previously used for Sassicaia and the second wine, Guidalberto. The 2019 is an excellent vintage with dried cherry, blackberry, tobacco complexity and spice. A lovely partner to game dishes such as fettuccine with ragú or wild boar sausage. It also has the freshness to cut through the fattiness of lamb. Open early and decant.

"Plum and cherry character. Walnut and bark undertones. It’s creamy and savory at the finish" James Suckling
