Tasting notes

At sight Le Difese della Tenuta San Guido shows a ruby red color. The nose has shades of red fruit such as black currant , blackberry and cherry that intersect with notes of chocolate and aromatic herbs . On the palate it is of excellent structure , soft and with a pleasantly fresh drink . It goes perfectly with typical Tuscan dishes but is also excellent with risotto and red and white meats.


After the manual harvest, the grapes are softly pressed and de-stemmed. Then a first fermentation takes place in stainless steel without adding external yeasts. Subsequently, maceration on the skins takes place with subsequent pumping over and deléstage. the malolactic fermentation is also carried out in steel and after this operation Le Difese refines in French oak barrels for 12 months.
