DESCRIPTION

James Suckling 92-93 "Very aromatic and bright with strawberry, cherry and currant character. Hints of oranges. Full-bodied, linear and tight, showing ultra-fine tannins. Potential here." (July, 2017)   Vinous Media (Antonio Galloni) 88 "The 2016 Le Difese is fresh, floral and fruity, with lovely red berry, rose petal and spice character. Drink this gracious, mid-weight Tuscan red over the next few years." (April, 2018)   Wine Advocate (Monica Larner) 90 "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." (February, 2018)
Wine Enthusiast (Kerin O'Keefe) 91 "Made with 70% Cabernet Sauvignon and 30% Sangiovese, this offers enticing aromas of black-skinned berry, iris and cedar. The savory, balanced palate delivers red currant, dried black cherry, star anise and white pepper alongside fine-grained tannins. Drink through 2023." (December, 2018)
Wine Spectator (Bruce Sanderson) 90 "A fresh, vibrant version, offering cherry, strawberry, spice and mineral flavors. Youthful, with assertive tannins, so decant or age short term. Cabernet Sauvignon and Sangiovese. Drink now through 2024." (July, 2018)
