2019 Tenuta San Guido - Le DifeseTuscany, Italy
|Producer||:||Tenuta San Guido|
|Label Name||:||Le Difese|
|Sub Region||:||Toscana IGT|
|Capacity||:||750 ml - Standard Bottle|
|Rating||:||16/20 - Jancis Robinson|
|Tasting Note||:||Surprisingly pale – more Pinot-like than a Cabernet blend! A sweet-sour red-cherry fruit profile, with a notable herbal edge, perhaps reflecting the higher Sangiovese proportion than 2018. On swirling, some cassis joins the party and there’s a background woody, cinnamon note. That sweet-sour sense comes through on the palate too, with a ripeness of red cherry and strawberry cut through with acidity. Pretty fine-grained, powdery tannins that are more refined than previous Le Difese vintages I have tasted. A touch of alcohol on the finish, but overall an enjoyable, perfumed red. -Tim Jackson, JancisRobinson.com|
