Le Difese 2013, 13%alc. vol, Tenuta San Guido
Its a 70% Cabernet and 30% Sangiovese blend.
Fermentation takes place in stainless steel vats at controlled temperature and maceration lasts for about 12 days for both the Cabernet Sauvignon to the Sangiovese. It is then aged for 12 months in French and American oak barrels and for a further three months in the bottle.
The wine is distinguished by a good structure and is extremely supple making it very pleasant and drinkable.
Le Difese is one of my favorite Wines!
