    2018 Le Difese, Tenuta San Guido

    The weather conditions for the 2018 releases were extremely favourable. A harsh winter and lower than average temperatures and heavy rain in March meant the vegetative standstill of the vines ensued for longer than usual. Spring began in mid-April with much needed warmer weather. May and June weather was more ?normal?, this along with good water reserves meant that the flowering and fruit set happened in the best conditions possible. Very hot conditions in July, running into August, were followed by much needed rain preventing water stress and giving the vines increased vigour. Warm and sunny, but not blisteringly hot conditions, in September and into October lead to a longer hanging time for the grapes.

    From calcareous soils rich in marl, pebbles and clay, located at 100 to 300 metres above sea level and lying South/south western facing; the 2018 Le Difese is a blend of 70% Cabernet Sauvignon and 30% Sangiovese. Bunches were carefully selected by hand. Primary fermentation took place in stainless steel vats. Maceration on the skins was 12-15 days for the Cabernet Sauvignon and 15-18 days for the Sangiovese, which had pumping over and délestage to soften tannins. Malolactic fermentation concluded in mid-November and was followed by the wine being transferred to third-use French oak barriques, that were previously used for Sassicaia for eight months.

    Le Difese is a wine made for immediate drinking, but can cellar for up to five years.

    Offered for sale under bond. Price shown is for a case (6x75cl bottles) and excludes UK duty and VAT which will be charged at the prevailing rate when the wine is released from bond. Onward delivery from bond charges are not included, free delivery on orders above £100 does not apply. Reward Card points are not accruable or redeemable on ‘En Primeur’ or In Bond sales.
