2016 Tenuta San Guido Le Difese Toscana
Le Difese (Toscana IGT) is produced by Tenuta San Guido since 2003. Their entry level wine shows super tuscan Bolgheri rosso at its finest in terms of approachability and drinkability.
A blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Sangiovese, the 2016 Le Difese shows a more evident touch of ripe fruit that you don’t perceive in the Guidalberto, which makes me think it comes from the Sangiovese component that is only used in this wine. The overall effect of that ripeness is that it downplays the wine’s inner complexity. But this entry-level red from Tenuta San Guido was never aiming for huge complexity to begin with. Dark cherry and cherry is followed by wild strawberry and tangy rose hip. This wine happily delivers on its promises of freshness and accessibility. – 90 points, The Wine Advocate
