Description

Le Difese of Tenuta San Guido is a red wine that enriches the fine selection of the winery, famous in the world for the Sassicaia. 2015 vintange vitage has been very positive, giving rise to high quality grapes, which have arrived in the basement with homogeneous freshness, fresh and crunchy. The structure that is perceived in this vintage is important, but charcterized by elegant and fluffy tannins.
The harvest of Cabernet Sauvignon grapes took place from late September to late October. The hand-picked bunches arrived in the cellar healthy, crunchy, with a homogeneous maturation and a spicy aroma. The Sangiovese grapes were harvested in the second week of October. A very gentle crushing and de-stemming of the grapes was followed by fermentation in temperature controlled stainless steel vats (between 30° - 31° C, only using the vineyard’s native, naturally occurring yeast). The maceration on the skins lasted 9 to 12 days for Cabernet Sauvignon and about 15 to 18 days for Sangiovese. It was followed by pumpovers of the musts and délestages in order to soften the wine tannins. The secondary fermentation (Malolactic fermentation) also took place in stainless steel vats. After the malolactic fermentation, the wine is aged for 12 months in oak barrels previously used for Guidalberto and Sassicaia. It is released on the market three months after bottling.

TASTING NOTES

The union of 70% Sangiovese and 30% Cabernet Sauvignon creates a happy outcome as in aroma, where fruity and spicy find the right balance, as in flavor, where the complexity and delicacy give life to an elegant and soft result to the palate.

FOOD MATCHING SUGGESTIONS

This red wine is the ideal companion for red meats and typical Tuscan dishes.

Winery

Tenuta San Guido

No one before Mario Incisa della Rocchetta had ever dared to produce a Bordeaux-style wine on Italian soil, let alone in an area such as Bolgheri, which was unknown to the world of wine. The innovative decision to plant cabernet on the San Guido Estate was in part due to the similarities he had found between his Tuscan property and the soils of Graves in Bordeaux. Marquis Incisa was raising racehorses on his estate at the time, as he still does today (in the 1950's, one of his horses, Ribot, won all of the races in which he participated).
