SKU: 31070 Categories: ,


Careful selection of the bunches by hand. Soft destemming of the grapes. Primary fermentation in stainless steel vats at a controlled temperature (27-28 ° C). Maceration on the skins for 13-15 days for Cabernet S. and for about 14-18 days for Sangiovese, with successive stages of pumping over and frequent delestage to encourage aromatic extraction and soften the tannins. Malo-lactic fermentation carried out in steel and concluded towards the end of November.

Le Difese 2020 is bright and delightfully fruit forward with delectable red cherry, plum and blackcurrant. On the palate, the crisp acidity and plush, ripe tannins frame a beautiful array of rich red and black fruits, tinged with Mediterranean herbs, salty black olives and a soft earthiness. An utterly moreish wine perfect for everyday enjoyment. Drink 2022 – 2024.

Winemaking Approach





Producer Information: Tenuta San Guido

Quietly, elegantly and almost involuntarily, the Incisa della Rocchetta family set to release the wine that would revolutionise the Italian wine scene creating a totally new genre. the Super-Tuscan. Tenuta San Guido is now a legendary estate and was first planted in the 1940s by the Marchese Mario Incisa della Rocchetta, who noted the similarity between Bolgheri’s terroir and that of the Graves. When, in 1968, Sassicaia was finally commercially released, it took the fine wine world by storm. Cementing its iconic status, in 1994 it was granted its own appellation – Bolgheri Sassicaia DOC.
