Le Difese Tenuta San Guido 2020 (6x75cl)
If money is no object then the 'Super Tuscan' Sassicaia is a great choice however, if too many teenagers are at home then buying the second wine from Tenuta San Guido is an excellent alternative...
History: Quietly, elegantly and almost involuntarily, Marchese Mario Incisa della Rocchetta set to release the wine that would revolutionise the Italian wine scene creating a totally
new genre: the Super-Tuscan.
Tenuta San Guido is now a legendary estate and was first planted in the 1940s by Mario, who noted the similarity between Bolgheri’s terroir and that of the Graves. When, in 1968, Sassicaia was finally commercially released, it took the fine wine world by storm. Cementing its iconic status - Le Difese is a more modest expression of the great Sassicaia but from a comparatively modest price point it really packs a punch!
We love this wine on its own and certainly with a Bolognese or a selection of cheeses!
