Le Difese is one of the little brothers of Sassicaia and was first produced in 2003. Made with 70% Cabernet and 30% Sangiovese, it is aged for 12 months in French and American oak barrels previously used for Guidalberto and Sassicaia and a further three months in bottle. The aim is to produce a Super Tuscan wine with good structure and extremely supple tannins.
Vibrant red and black berry fruits with violet and herbal notes. Good structure on the palate with round tannin and good length.
Food matches: Enjoyed with a tender piece of venison or beef steak.
