Le Difese is made by Tenuta San Guido of Sassicaia since 2003. It is a 70% Cabernet and 30% Sangiovese blend.
Fermentation takes place in stainless steel vats at controlled temperature and maceration lasts for about 12 days for both the Cabernet Sauvignon to the Sangiovese. It is then aged for 12 months in French and American oak barrels and for a further three months in the bottle.
From a great vintage of 2016, Le Difese has a good structure and is extremely supple and very enjoyable.
