Tenuta San Guido, Le Difese 2015
This is the most recent addition to Tenuta San Guido’s portfolio and takes its name from the local wild boar which roam the hills of Bolgheri. The intention is to create a wine that is meant to be drunk young. The blend is 70% Cabernet, with the remainder being Sangiovese from bought in fruit. The 2015 is very much a vin de soif, with crisp acidity and a palate of easy drinking, juicy red fruits. This is well made but not overly complex and, as designed, is ready to drink now and over the next two years.
