Winemaker Notes: Intense black fruit aromas and flavors as well as the vanilla and spice of oak in a full-bodied wine with supple tannins.

This is the 3rd wine made at the estate of "SASSICAIA"

Fruit for Le Difese is selected from Tenuta San Guido estate’s younger vines. Fermentation for both varieties takes place on the skins in temperature-controlled stainless steel vats. The wine is matured in French and American oak barrels.

"Made with 55% Cabernet Sauvignon and 45% Sangiovese, this has enticing aromas of cassis, black tea, violet and wild herbs. Savory and elegantly structured, the medium-bodied palate shows ripe blackberry, star anise and a hint of coffee bean framed in lithe, polished tannins. Fresh acidity keeps it balanced. Drink through 2025."

The 2021 Le Difese is redolent of crushed red berry fruit, rose petal, lavender, spice and sweet pipe tobacco. Medium in body yet nicely layered, the 2021 is impeccably balanced. ot is also a sheer delight to taste at this early stage. In many vintages, Le Difese is a fruity, forward wine, but the 2021 has a nervy feeling of classicism that is hugely appealing. it's one of my favorite vintages. As it has for some time, Le Difese is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon from the estate and Sangiovese purchased from several prpoerties in Chianti Classico, with the energy of Sangiovese very much driving the feel of this vintage.
