In a nutshell:
A rich and rewarding Super Tuscan and little brother of the world famous Sassicaia
Le Difese is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and 30% Sangiovese which gives it, maybe, a bit more of an Italian character than the estate's other wines. The 2018 is a vibrant wine full of red cherry, wild strawberry and cassis aromas with aromatic herbiness coming through. On the supple palate it has a freshness with a lively minerality and bursting with summer fruit flavours.
When to drink:
It's fresh and enjoyable now, but the tannic framework will allow it to improve up another five years if you prefer a more savoury style.
