Tasting Notes

Tenuta San Guido's entry-level red is the 2020 Le Difese. This blend of 45% Cabernet Sauvignon and 55% Sangiovese shows hints of ripe fruit and cherry with wild plum, redcurrant and bitter almond. That element of Sangiovese adds some floral intensity too, which comes across as lilac root or dried violet. That said, you definitely feel the softness and sweetness of the hot-vintage fruit.

Score: 88

The 2020 Le Difese is laced with crushed flowers, sweet red berry fruit, cinnamon and rose petal. This light to medium-bodied, fragrant Maremma red is an ideal choice for drinking over the next few years. Served at cellar temperature, it is also a fine option for the warm summer months.

Antonio Galloni, Vinous.com Maturity: 2022-2026 01 July 2022

A juicy and delicious red with aromas of blueberries, sliced mushrooms, currants, blackberry leaves, licorice and bergamot. Medium-bodied with fine tannins and a creamy, round and fresh finish. Drink now or hold.
