Tenuta San Guido Le Difese 2016
Fruit forward flavour profile
Made from a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Sangiovese grapes, which are grown in the Bolgheri region of Tuscany, Italy. The grapes are carefully selected and harvested by hand before being fermented in stainless steel tanks and aged in oak barrels for at least 12 months.
The wine is of deep ruby red color, with aromas of red and dark fruit, such as cherry, raspberry, and blackberry, along with notes of spices and herbs. On the palate, it is medium-bodied and well-balanced, with a flavour profile that includes ripe red fruit, a hint of vanilla, and a subtle oak note. The wine has a smooth texture and a long and satisfying finish.
Pairs well with a variety of Italian dishes, such as pasta dishes with a tomato sauce, grilled meats, or cheese plates.
