Tenuta San Guido, Le Difese, Tuscany, Italy 2019

Tenuta San Guido, Le Difese 2019

RRP £15

Conditions in 2019 were good, with a dry, mild winter and a cool, rainy spring; a warm summer with welcome rains in August allowed a bit more hang time. Very light, almost transparent in colour. Lovely, fresh, savoury nose with sweet red cherry and menthol overtones. The palate is deep and full, the tannins ripe and soft; there’s more sour cherry on the palate and a fine, dry, sour, juicy finish which is delightfully refreshing. A fine, easy-drinking, charming wine.
